Heavy equipment operator in a gold mine. Strictly 1/48 aircraft with a penchant for oddball schemes

Photographing Models

I was asked about my camera set-up for taking photos. I use a Canon EOS Rebel T3. I have the Mode Dial set to (Aperature Priority). I set the f stop to 32, my highest which allows everything to be in focus. The first two photos show my screen s[...]

Revell 1:48 F-104G (CF-104) 417Sq. Cold Lake, Alberta

A nice kit with a few issues. The instructions want you to join the forward fuselage halves together first, then join the rear halves together and then put the two together as one. Do this and you'll have a whacking great seam to deal with. Glue[...]

Revell 1:48 F-104G

This is an RCAF 441 Sqn CF-104. This aircraft wore this scheme for the 30th anniversary of CFB Baden Soellingen, Germany. I built it using the Revell boxing of the "Tiger Meet" and this came with god awful yellow sprues. I'm building another NMF[...]
