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

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. Hope[...]

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 fusela[...]

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 Master [...]

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 a ton [...]

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[...]
