  1. Just can't go wrong with Tamiya's Skyraider and here's photographic proof once again. Great work, Brian. Love it.

  2. 🙂 ... Greetings ... 🙂 :
    Brian ... I am in par with Craig.
    Very nice looking AD-3, thanks for sharing the pictures.

  3. Tamiya Skyraiders are one of my favourite models.
    Nice build. Looks good in that colour scheme.

  4. Nice job Brian, always good to see project rescued from the shelf of doom.
    That's a really good looking Spad.

  5. A Spad in any colour is a WINNER. You did a good job on this one. Well done !

  6. Great build...very nice finish.

  7. Impressive and superb build, like it!

  8. Nice! looks great in Korean war markings.

  9. Nice build Brian - and it always feels good to get one across the finish line! I've also got a Korean Span on my on-deck shelf, so this is another "kick-in-the-pants" to hurry up and open that box!

  10. She's a beaut, Brian. Wow.

  11. I think the Skyraider is one of those planes that looks good in any scheme it wore, but I do like blue the best! Looks great!

  12. Congrats Brian! I just finished another blue Korean War Spad the other day- haven't had time to photograph and post it yet!
    I have two more Korean War GSB Spads in addition to that one on the build pile, then a Viet Nam era A-1H. Thanks for posting- some great work there!

  13. By the way- I just noticed you were able to post images and then enter text between them- I would love to be able to do that in my future posts- how do you do it?

  14. Hi Dan,

    This tutorial on the help pages should do it. Haven't tried though...

  15. Another great example of your neat workmanship.

  16. another masterpiece Brian... 🙂
