  1. Very nice group of models. You might think about listing them individually to give them & yourself justice.

  2. You’ve got quite the production line going John. Good looking models sure would like to know more about them.

  3. top shelf builds

  4. All good stuff – I really like the C-47.

  5. I didn’t think the Hobby Craft / Academy bf-109 kits had separate leading edge slants???


  6. A diverse range of subjects with a consistently high standard of modelling – they look great. I especially like the civilian DC-3 and the twin Mustang.

  7. You’ve certainly been busy, great models, they deserve separate postings.

  8. John, you are a modeling machine!
    Did you use the gunship kit, or modify the C-47 with the paratroops?
    I got to see one of them in action while I was overseas one evening. It was impressive, and scary.
    Great bunch of builds, beautifully done.

  9. John,
    Late comment but nevertheless your work is outstanding. Very impressive group of models. I love the GB.
