Started building models again after a 25 year break. Enjoy warbirds, armor and muscle cars.

F6F Hellcat – 1:32 Hasegawa

First, let me say this—I originally wanted to title this post, “To Hell with this F6!” But, thought our web site benefactors wouldn’t appreciate it. However, my fellow builders, this kit was anything but fun. Maybe its because I’ve been dist[...]

1:32 Hasegawa P-40E “Tiger 104” – Nose Art Group Build

First I want to thank Jaime Carreon for starting this group build. From the beginning I knew I wanted to be part of it, but didn't know what I should build. Than it became clear it had to be a Flying Tiger P-40 due to their defining Tiger Shark [...]

1:32 Zoukei-Mura P-51D Mustang

This was my first build after a 25 year break from models so I figured start with the Cadillac of war birds. I picked the Zoukei-Mura over the Tamiya kit based purely on price. And I must say, this is a really nice kit. If you want to build a sk[...]
