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

1/35 Italeri Tiger I

Here’s the Italeri Tiger I E with a ton of extras. I used leftover brass, bits of plastic and wire and unused parts from various other kits. The markings are of Otto Carius’s “213” of pz.abt 503 from Bison Decals. Brian Riedel

A couple of 4th FG ponies

A couple of old builds of P-51-D’s from the mighty 4th Fighter Group. The first one is the old Fujimi kit with a Verlinden cockpit, decals from Superscale. The second one is the Monogram kit with decals from Superscale. Brian Riedel

1/72 Airfix Albatros D-V

Built this one with leftovers from a Roden Albatross D-III. Decals are actually for a Fokker D-VII, but I liked them for this one. Brian Riedel

1/72 Revell World War One

Nieuport 17, Guynemeyer, cone de penetration from a 1/48 bomb Dh-2 Albatross D-III, Voss SPAD XIII, Barraca Sopwith Triplane, Little Sop with Camel, Brown, resin parts from Roseplane Se-5a Fokker D-VII, Lowenhardt (maybe) Fokker E-III Nieuport 2[...]

1/35 Skink ( Tamiya Stuart)

This was a fun one. Had a Quad .50 leftover from an AFV Club M35 Gun Truck kit, so I did this one. Would have interesting to see this on the battlefield. Brian Riedel

1/48 Aurora Fokker D-VII

Built this one a while ago. Lozenge decals by America’s Gryphon. Checkerboard hand done on flat white with black India ink. The “Mimi” was drawn on white decal film. I rather like how it turned out. Brian Riedel

1/35 Tamiya M3A1 Stuart

Another oldie, not much extra added. Brian Riedel

1/48 Aurora SPAD XIII

An Aurora SPAD XIII’s, one being an original kit with decals by Aeromaster. Brian Riedel

Revell Lacrosse Missile Mobile Launcher

Howdy, Here’s my build of the 1958 Revell Lacrosse Missile Launcher. I fixed up the tilt and made most of the decals for the missile. The truck decals are from the Tamiya CCKW. Brian Riedel

Beep and Jeep

Howdy, Two builds from a few years ago. A mashup of an Italeri/ AFV Club WC51 and an Italeri Jeep with Bison decals. Also, the Tamiya SAS Jeep. Brian Riedel
