I am 58years old and live in the SF bay area. I mostly build in 1/72 aircraft and will sometimes do something in 1/48 if the subject strikes my interest. I am also a volunteer aboard the USS Hornet CV/CVA/CVS-12 in Alameda, CA helping run the radio room and amateur radio station on board callsign NB6GC.

1/72 KP P-51B

This had been sitting on my bench nearly completed for a while. I finally got it finished today. This was the personal aircraft of Capt. Donald M. Malmsten 4th FG 334FS of Burwell, NE "Turnip Termite". On June 6, 1944 this [...]

1/72 Hasegawa Spitfire Mk VII

I just finished this 1/72 Hasegawa Spitfire Mk VII today, my first build of the year. I scratch built the rear bulkhead for the pressurized cockpit and added Eduard seat belts as well as Quickboost exhaust and a resin ventral ID light. The [...]

1/72 Airfix A6M2b Zero

My final build for 2021. I started this on the 2nd of this month to see if I could get a build done in a months time. This is the Airfix 1/72 A6M2b kit. Its mostly OOB. I added PE seatbelts and some gunsight glass. Hinomarus and stripes [...]

1/72 Academy P-51B

This is the 1/72 Academy P-51B. I just finished it today. I am trying to get some of the P-51B's in my stash done before the new Arma kit is released. This aircraft nicknamed "SNAFU", was flown by !st Lt. Clemens A. Feidler. [...]

1/48 Hobbyboss F8F-1 Bearcat

I started this one last year and then it spent a little time on the shelf of doom before I finished it this week. I sanded down the larger rudder trim tab that was for the -2 and filled and sanded the openings on the starboard wing that [...]

1/72 B6N2 Tenzan

1/72 Fujimi B6N2. This was on the shelf of doom for quite some time. I had started this kit years ago but put it away since I was having a hard time getting the forward cowl/fuselage to fit the way I wanted. I took it out of the box and [...]

1/72 Academy P-51 "North Africa"

I just finished the 1/72 Academy P-51 "North Africa" boxing. I think the kit had been languishing in the stash for about a decade so it was time to get it built and I kind of like the look of the Allison powered Mustangs. The [...]

1/48 Eduard P-39N

1/48 Eduard P-39N Airacobra Profipack kit. I just finished this today. While looking through my stash last month I found this kit partially built in the box. I had started it in 2014 and then put it away probably because I really don't [...]
