I am born and raised- a BERMUDIAN.
I am a professional artist and an art teacher. I am married and have two miniature dachshunds.
My main areas of interest are USN/USMC aircarft through the ages, but I love all flying things! I hope to start doing some artwork of aircraft, but for now my market is more focused on images of Bermuda.
Yet another kit that had languished on the shelf of doom- a hangar queen that was on pause for too long. I had always wanted to build a Mig17 in VPAF markings- and back in the day of collecting kits I saw this one as an opportunity. It was a sec[...]
I had the Minicraft 1/48 P-38J kit- but it sat for a while because I was not sure how I would deal with all the stripes on the tail and spinners.
The decals from the kit sheet and the Hasegawa kit sheet for the coloured stripes were not suitable[...]
This F4U-4B has all the same modifications as my other F4U-4B here on Imodeler, except that the wings are not folded, and I have used a flap set from the Verlinden F4U-4 detail set for the Hasegawa kit.
The weapons are 1000 lb bombs from the Has[...]
I built one of my Minicraft 1/48 F4U-4B kits with Tamiya 1/48 F4U wing fold hinge parts.
I made resin copies of Tamiya 1/48 F4U-1 oil cooler inlets, then cut out 3 of the vanes to modify them to match F4U-4 inlets. They have a much better shape [...]
A few years ago, I decided to try and fold the wings on one of my 1/48 Monogram AD-6 skyraiders. the parts seemed to be there, but it was not mentioned in the instructions.
One problem with cutting the wings is that it is impossible to keep the [...]
I know Christmas is actually over, but I wanted to share the 1/144 ornament I made for my wife this year. Dragon's 1/144 EA-6A with spare decals. I didn't want to do the squadron featured in the kit, and I have been working on a 1/48 EA-[...]
I have always wanted to build a French Hellcat, and years ago when i was able to get hold of some Model Art decals I set aside a Hasegawa 1/48 F6F-5 for this build. After some research, I noticed that the drop tank on French Hellcats and late se[...]
Years ago, I got an Airfix Sepecat Jaguar and loaded up on all the Paragon resin parts for it. Then I entered a phase of major downsizing and decided to sell it off. Last year i decided to get one again, because the Revell AG boxing was cheaper [...]
I had this kit in my stash for some time. I bought a Cutting Edge engine correction set for it, and didn't think about building it until I saw the release of the Eduard BF110G-2 kit. The boxing I bought was the Wespen release, which comes with a[...]
