On My Bench
A collection of photos of my slowly shrinking workbench space.
A 1:48 Grumman F-14A Tomcat, kit by Academy, aftermarket decals.
A 1:48 Grumman F8F Tigercat WIP, kit by AMT/ERTL.
A few various 1:24 & 1:25 car kits.
A trio of 1:72 scale Midway Warbirds, destined for a 2nd Diorama.
My first completed 1:72 scale Diorama, featuring a Mk.V Spitfire, a Mk.II Hurricane, a Bf 109 being chased by a P-51 D Mustang, as well as a Sherman & Willy’s Jeep.
2 Diorama photos included to show props turning & at rest.
(Please disregard the automotive black window hanger)
Lastly, my scratchbuilt attempt at a 1:48 scale Canadian Coast Guard Vessel. Plans all drawn up on AutoCAD. Model is a balsawood structure skinned in fiberglass. It is 4-channel radio-controlled. It features a Pod or Z-Drive propulsion system, as well as an “ice-breaker” forward hull design. I also included a functional R/C co-axial helicopter too. This model also features an LED lit cabin and navigation lights, along with a rotating radar dish/panel atop the wheelhouse. Max speed estimate at about 10-15 km/hour (6-9 mph).
