I build mainly 1/48 scale aircraft but venture off into armor, vehicles, and ships as the mood strikes.

Monogram 1/48 OA-4M

Just recently off the bench is my rendition of the older but excellent Monogram 1/48 OA-4M in the two tone gray finish. I used Mr. Color paints and their semi-gloss for a final finish. Furball decals were also used and I cannot say [...]

Monogram T-28D

Well another oldie but goodie for you this evening. The Monogram 1/48ish T-28D from the mid-sixties I believe. I even built it will all of the operating features but decided to go ahead and lock down the flimsy gear with a touch of [...]

Revell 1/48 F9F-5P

Whew, glad to finish this one off and it did turn out nice. There were a few glitches in assembly that slowed down the line-mainly a bad mis-alignment of the tip tanks at the ends. That took a lot of work to rein in and I had to be very [...]

Monogram 1/48 T-6 Texan-Korean War

"Patches" is another in a continuing series of Korean War Era builds. This is one of the original Monogram kits issued in the late '70s. I only added harnesses to the cockpit. Paint is Model Master Faded OD over Neutral Gray. [...]

Box Scale Monogram B-26 Invader

Not a quick build as expected but it turned out nice. Nose weights added to keep her grounded. MM Non-Buffing Aluminum and Sealer (I like that stuff). Strictly out of the box and amazingly the old kit decals survived with a bit of help. [...]

Get To The Choppah

Revell original issue H-19 with Caracal decals. MM Glossy Sea Blue with a final coat of MM Semi Gloss Lacquer. Really out of the box with the exception of adding screening for the engine access openings. I also added some clear styrene [...]

Monogram 1/48 F-80s from the shelf of doom…

Original edition of the venerable Monogram F-80 Shooting Stars. I started these two back in the early 80s with he intention of building Minimum and Maximum Goose. I finally finished them using and old set of Aeromaster decals and Model [...]

Hobbycraft 1/48 F-94B

Finally complete. Hobbycraft 1/48 F-94B, MM Non-Buffing Aluminum, BareMetal decals, True Details T-33 seats, scratchbuilt gunsight, mild weathering. Korean War, I'll add it to that build group. This one fought me at every turn and took [...]

Monogram 1/48 AD-6 backdated to an AD-3 of VMA 212 in Korea

This started out as OOB build using kit decals. Unfortunately they were toast and did not cooperate when being applied. I used Euro decals for the Skyraider and they were excellent. I scratchbuilt the early AERO bomb racks then added [...]

Hobbycraft 1/48 P-40 L/M

Again this was supposed to be a quick out of the box build but ended up with me spending a lot of time on the model. First of all, I "canvassed in" the wheel wells using coffee filter paper. Then I detailed the cockpit with [...]
