by Louis Gardner on October 29, 2016 in Aviation -- 29 Comments

This is another one of my favorite planes. This one was built with the addition of a set of True Details resin wheels. I had heard some of the horror stories about how the wheels fall apart after a while […]

1/48th AMT F7F-3N Tigercat

by Jim Sullivan on September 4, 2015 in Aviation -- 42 Comments

I found this F7F-3N AMT kit to be a smooth build with no noticeable problems other than those that were self-inflicted. Despite filling the nose with lead, I found the model to be a dedicated tail-sitter. AMT must have been […]

by Charles S on May 15, 2013 in Aviation -- 16 Comments

Here is a 1/48 F7F that I did a while back. It was a first attempt to replicate the “blurred prop” effect seen in photos of real aircraft. I think it turned out well. The blurred props were done with […]

Finished this one last year. It took me a year to build to the day I called it finished. Posted on another site, but one of my all time favorites. And fun to build. It is a 1/48 scale AMT/ERTL […]
