P-80 Shooting Star

I was commissioned to build this and was given a colored plate showing the exact A/C he wanted. The plate described the P-80 as being with the 26th Fighter Interceptor Squadron at Kimpo Airfield, Korea in November of 1950. the […]

Year of the Cat

this is the Hobby Boss F8F-1 straight from the box. A great build and I think the Hobby Boss kit is a wonderful kit of their aircraft. I used the kit decals and they represent an A/C of VF-3 flown […]

Year of The Cat Group Build: Grumman Martlet Mk III – Hobby Boss 1/48 Wildcat F4F-3A

When Louis announced the group all those months ago, and with its closing date being quite some way distant, I decided to go for three builds. Three kits whose fates were already planned (although the ‘109 E7 Trop’ took a […]

1/48 Hobby Boss A-10 Thunderbolt II

This is one I built some years ago but as far as I can remember there was no problems with it. The only thing you must remember to do is to put a large weight in the nose or it […]
