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 502 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

1/35 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

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
