These look like they could have been finished yesterday. All of them reflect a talented builder.

Nice stable of planes. I thought I was the only one to use a lable gun to identify my aircraft! Great selection, all clean builds.

These are absolutely stunning. I have to agree, they look like they were done yesterday. You have amazing talent.

Eric, Great trip down memory lane! I especially like the P-38 and the Hurricane as I built a lot of those kits as a kid.

fine work…that f4 u looks like you did a lot of changes…beautiful work

Wow! Thank all for your kind comments! These models are fortunate to be housed in inclosed display cases which accounts for their condition. I think Monogram has produced through the year some pretty good kits, with accurate outlines and shapes that with a little modelling work can result in nice models.
These pictures bring back a simpler time and a lot of great memories building these models across the desk from my dad.

Fantastic work, Eric, and like the others have said, they look as though they were finished yesterday. You obviously really care for your models.

Beautiful proof that Monogram models make excellent planes. Eric, you’ve done a great job on these birds. Bravo sir!
Eric aka The Yankymodeler said on September 9, 2013
Thanks again guys! I added a couple of pics of the model room at my dad’s house. This is the place of many happy memories for me and where most of the vintage Monogram kits are displayed.

Great builds! Nice man cave, especially the picture of you (?) under the PC!
or is that your Dad?
Eric aka The Yankymodeler said on September 11, 2013
Wow! Good eye, and you’re dating yourself by the admission you know what a Para Commander looks like! That is my Dad, taken probably in the early ’70s. I so far have had no desire to leave my Acrosport in such a manor! 😉
