The Three Soldiers pt.4

The final display, upon which all three kits are nested, needed to be planned to be separated for transport. My initial idea was a circle with a chevron cut out to resemble the wall at the actual location in D.C. The base would cut into sectio[...]

The Three Soldiers pt.3

I wanted to render the last kit as the statue on display in D.C. The actual statue is not a monotone bronze color, but instead has the uniforms, equipment and weapons colored with epoxy paint. Bare skin areas are left ‘in the rough’ though the[...]

The Three Soldiers pt.2

Second of the models (all Gold), I just rushed, trying to accomplish a one day build, resulted in improper fits and the necessity to reposition the mid character on the base - not according to assigned holes. Yep - had to drill my own positionin[...]

The Three Soldiers pt.1

Dedicated to my big brother. My model showcase is a tribute to my brother and other Vietnam Vets. Just like the original statue at the Vietnam Veterans Memorial, each kit depicts a sense of unity and sacrifice; I wanted to depict alternate menta[...]

1/35 AFV M35A1 Quad .50 Vietnam Gun Truck

To be honest I really dont know much about this truck as it was used in Vietnam, but when I saw a picture of it on the box top I just needed to build it. I built this a few years back after a brief hiatus from serious model making. My 1st chil[...]

Cessna O-1E Bird Dog – Hasegawa 1:48

Exactly one year after my last model, Cessna O-2A Oscar Deuce in 1:48 scale, I’m here again with its older cousin Cessna O-1E Bird Dog in the same scale. Coming from Hasegawa (ModelUsa), it requested a lot of improvements summarized as follow: [...]

McDonnell F-4C Phantom II (1/48, Eduard)

This build came out of nowhere when Eduard issued limited edition Good evening Da Nang. SEA camo scheme is notorious, so I decided to go for genuine light gull grey over white scheme, which have seen early days on Vietnam War. There was a lot o[...]

F-100D Super Sabre ‘Pahodee Tiger’

Hello all. So here's my just completed Trumpeter 1:48 'Hun'. What a kit !!, simply fell together with almost no input from me. Only additions are a Quickboost seat and Eduard pre-painted etch set for the pit - neither of which are actually 'need[...]

M107 175mm Mechanized Howitzer (Tamiya-Italeri) 1:35

Some history: This kit dates back from the seventies but has been reboxed and retooled by Tamiya recently. There are some kit add-ons and three figures. I was intrigued by the story of these massive L/60 Howitzers during the siege of Khe Sanh in[...]

Tamiya A-1H Skyraider 1/48 scale

Everyone knows about VA-176's 'Bumblebee' MiG killer, with its giant killer bee artwork, but the first USN Skyraider to shoot down a MiG-17 seems to be lost in the shuffle. Tamiya's A-1H USN kit, fortunately, includes markings for VA-25's 'Cana[...]
