Howdy,

I build almost anything that piques my interest. I build what I like, as I like.

1/72 Airfix P-47D

My just completed Airfix 1/72 P-47D. I spruced it up with a prop, bombs and shackles, drop tank, possibly the engine (I forget), bazookas and decals from Tamiya kits. True Details wheels and cockpit, as well as scratch built wheel wells. Bri[...]

1/72 4th Fg Col. Don and Red Dog

Enough of my OD posts for today. Two 1/72 P-51 ponies of the 4th FG. First up is an Academy P-51B with homemade decals (what little there is anyway) in the markings of Col. Donald Blakeslee. OOB Second, an Airfix P51D in markings from a Supers[...]

1/35 Tamiya M21 Mortar Half Track

Out Of The Box with stowage from various kits. The ladders are from a Dragon Half Track kit. Brian Riedel

1/35 Tamiya Quads

Here's some pics of my 1/35 Tamiya armor kits. First up is the M16 Quad Gun half track. Pretty much out of the box with stowage from a variety of kits. Painted with Model Master rattlecan OD. Second is a kit bash of the Tamiya (old) M3A1 Stuart[...]

1/35 Italeri Hetzer

1/35 Italeri Hetzer. Finished it yesterday, FINALLY! Used Tamiya Panzer IV add on tools (which accounts for the crooked side skirt) and the rubber tracks from the Tamiya Hetzer kit.

1/48 Hasegawa P-38J

Did this one a long time ago. Decals from Aeromaster for an 80th fg bird. True Detail wheels, Xtracolor gloss paints for the OD/Neutral Grey, Testors square bottle gloss green. At the time I did this, I didn't have any real reference materia[...]

1/25 AMT 1950 Chevrolet 3100 pick up truck

Built out of the box, with wood grain decals for the slats in the bed. Not perfect, but I'm happy with it. Brian Riedel

1/48 Aviatik Berg D.1

1/48 Sierra Scale Models Aviatik Berg D.1, markings for Frank Linke-Crawford. Lozenge decals by Americal-Gryphon. I did this one a long time ago. My first successful vac form kit (in my opinion). It was also my first attempt at spoke wheels[...]

1/48 Eduard Pfalz D-III

The most unlucky kit! 1/48 Eduard Pfalz D-III with decals from the Glencoe kit. While building this one, the control stick broke at least three or four times. The decals shattered and I had to buy another kit to get a complete set (though if[...]

1/48 Otaki Ki-61 “Tony”

Howdy, Finally finished this one. Markings are for Captain Ichikawa of the 3rd Chutai, 244th Sentai. The 1/48 Otaki Ki-61, started back in the eighties and sitting on the shelf since then. The decals are from the Aeromaster "Eagles of the Ri[...]
