I am 57years 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 Tamiya F4D-1 Skyray

I am calling this one done. 1/72 Tamiya F4D-1 Skyray. Painted with MRP paints. Its OOB with the exception of added seatbelts. Markings are from Starfighter Decals and depict a aircraft from VF-141 the "Iron Angels" aboard USS [...]

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 [...]

1/72 Hasegawa P-51K

My first build of 2021 is complete. This is the 1/72 Hasegawa P-51K. Although the Hasegawa kit is getting a bit long in the tooth, I think it still builds into a nice representation of a Mustang. I added CMK resin wheels, Quickboost resin [...]

1/72 Eduard Spitfire HF Mk VIII

This is the 1/72 Eduard Spitfire HF Mk VIII. The markings are for SAAF No 1 Sqn, the "Billy Boy Squadron" Trigno, Italy, March 1944. It started off as a weekend edition kit but I added a Eduard Zoom set (the PE rearview mirror [...]
