by Joe Caputo on June 26, 2017 in Aviation -- 17 Comments

Trivia question: What post WWII US Navy aircraft had no tail hook or wing walks? Thanks to Jaime, I finally took this one from the stash and got busy. What was supposed to be a “group” build, sort of went […]

And now for something completely different… A “What If”, a “Definite Maybe”, and a “Just Because”!

by Roberto Silva Cuevas on March 28, 2017 in Aviation -- 22 Comments

Hi Everyone… Today I finished up the Mitsubishi J2M in the colors of an actual Ki-61 that was captured by the U.S. Marines during WWII. I think it catches the spirit of the “What If” without going to overboard. Next […]

by Joe Caputo on March 21, 2017 in Aviation -- 18 Comments

This is the old Life-Like, Ideal, Lindberg Gloster Gladiator. In it’s time (long ago) it was a decent kit. I modified it a little, to make a “stunt” plane out of it. The prop was from the Mk.I kit, and […]

1/32 Lindberg Laird-Turner Meteor

by Tom Bebout on March 6, 2016 in Aviation -- 13 Comments

Thought I would try something a little different as well as to try some kit bashing with this build. The Meteor was designed by Roscoe Turner, a very flamboyant pilot, and was build by Matty Laird. During the planes career […]

1/72 Lindberg Mitsubishi G4M2 “Betty”

by Joe Caputo on September 7, 2015 in Aviation -- 17 Comments

The box art says 1967 ! This has to be one of the oldest kits I’ve built in a long time. I picked it up at an estate sale, and thought it would be an opportunity to add a “Betty” […]

Beauty and the Beast!!!

How about a little love for those old Lindberg automobile kits. The armored car is one I posted a while ago. It was derived from their Mercedes Benz racer. The new blue car is their Stutz racer with the Benz […]

by Joe Caputo on December 6, 2014 in Ships -- 16 Comments

The Lindberg Coastal Patrol Boat, which I had posted much earlier, was a good beginning for this conversion. Reference material was somewhat limited. The Squadron publication, “Riverine” by Jim Mesko, gave me a decent start. The back cover shows a […]
