Here's another Western Pacific billboard airliner.
Minicraft 1/144 737 withn Daco decals. I'll let you figure out who the livery represents.
Built OOB. I used so much acrylic clear on it I floated one of the stencils loose.
This is my only remaining "Jug". The others have left the building in one way or another.
These are 2 Hasegawa 1/72 kits. They are mounted on telescoping tubes so they can be dismounted when traveling. The trees were borrowed from the railroad g[...]
This is another kit I built because I liked the markings.
1/72 Hasegawa F-104. Pretty much OOB. Only thing to watch for is a step when mating the front section to the rear of the fuselage. I'd recommend gluing the front sides to the rears, then[...]
This is a Monogram Speedi-Bilt model my father built some time in the early 50's. I can remember from about '54 on & I don't remember him building this so it must have been before then. These kits were plank balsa & acetate. As you can s[...]
This is a Monogram 1?24th Packard Phaeton. Built OOB. Spray painted with enamel paint from the little Testors bottle. If I remember correctly I was paying 5 cents for the when I began painting my models.
This whole series of Monogram classics is[...]

It is a 1/72nd Revell of Germany kit.
Thanks to the person with the magic fingers who pulled my name from the hat.
This is the Eduard Fw190D11 1/48th Weekend Edition.
It is a well molded kit with decals & stencils for one aircraft.
As per the Weekend theme there is no photo-etch[...]
Thought I'd make post before leaving for the IPMS Region IV Regionals at Dayton, Oh tomorrow.
The B-10 was the US Army Air Force's first all steel monoplane bomber and went into service in 1934.
This is the Williams Brothers 1/72 kit. Box stock [...]
Finally got weather good enough to get out in the sunshine to take pictures so I decided to post another shiny thing.
1/24th Tamiya Porsche 911GT1. Completely box stock. Great kit. Awsome decal sheet.
1/32nd Williams Brothers kit of the Gee Bee. Built many years ago. Painted by "rattle can".
Scallops were laid out with homemade stencils. Pinstripes were done using a french curve & draftsman's pen.
Typical WB kit. Bit of a challenge but ca[...]
