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

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 Eduard 2[...]

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 leftover etch parts[...]

1/200 Dragon C-141B

Yes, only a 9 1/2" wingspan! I built this as a presentation model for a buddy of mine. He flew F-4s in SEA then transitioned over to the 141s until retirement. He specifically requested the stretched version (B) in Lizard paint. Now that was[...]

Grumman S-2A Tracker in 1/48 scale by Kinetic

Well another one finally complete. This is the Kinetic issue of the early version S-2A, basically short body and short wings to keep the description simple. I went all out on this kit using Quickboost engines that were wired and had the pushro[...]

Revell (Monogram 1/48 F-8E) Finished

Hello all! Well after what seems like an eternity I finished up this build of the old Monogram F-8E Crusader. My goal was to build the kit so that it could stand up beside one of the newer Hasegawa kits. It was a challenge! I added some upda[...]

Hasegawa 1/48 F6F-5

I enjoyed this build and glad it's finally done. I used a Quickboost engine (wired and pushrods added), the Obscureco cowl, CMK flaps, Eduard etch and a True Details resin seat in the cockpit. Paint is MM Glossy Sea Blue with a Polly Scale sem[...]

An Old School Build

Good morning. I thought you might enjoy a trip down memory lane-well at least for some of you. This is a Guillow's semi-scale stick and tissue model of a Super Cub I built for my gal's dad who is now 87. It took a bit to regain those lost ski[...]

Hobbyboss 1/48 F8F-1 Bearcat

Hello: I just finished up the Bearcat this morning. It was another one of those challenging builds that we all tackle every now and then. I installed Aires resin bays in both the wings and area behind the engine. I used a Quickboost engine a[...]

New Revell 1/48 Stearman completed

Hello all: First of all, many thanks to Jim Sullivan for enhancing the photos you see here. I just completed this build. What a beautiful model. I wrapped it up in less than 2 weeks. I added lap belts from Eduard. The model is rigged using[...]

Hobbyboss 1/48 F4U-4B VMF-214

Good morning: This is my first posting to this group. I have included a few photos of my recently completed Hobbyboss F4U-4B in 1/48 scale. I added Aires wheel wells and cockpit along with some True Details "un-flattened" resin wheels and tir[...]
