Building models since age 7 (except for a short respite in my military years). Enjoying it now more than ever. I build across the spectrum but am biased towards towards historical miniatures and military vehicles.

A (Reluctantly) Productive 2020

Taking advantage of the extra down time from the Covid social distancing lockdown I tried to reduce my stash by finishing some simple no-frills OOB builds (**) in addition to ongoing work on regular long term projects. No frills means no afterm[...]

Last 2020 Project: Hawker Hurricane Mk II b 1/72 ARMA Hobby

My last completed build of 2020 (finished on 12/31). I can't say enough about ARMA kits in general and this one in particular. Meticulous detail--better than some larger scale kits by other brands. High quality plastic, comparable to Tamiy[...]

Academy 1/72 USMC F-35B

I'll start off by saying this is a great kit that led to a really fun project. I was initially intrigued by the the complex stealthy coloring and the complex VTOL architecture of this aircraft. I figured it would present some interesting model[...]

Graf Spee 1/700 Trumpeter

This is my first surface ship project since doing a few in my youth. This kit has no PE or resin but it has some very fine plastic parts. I used nearly every type of tool, glue, paint and technique I know of. The last steps were particular[...]

Tamiya 1:48 Tamiya Marder III

Since March, when California's social distancing lockdown began, I have been reducing my stash and hone some modeling skills by doing monthly simple no-frills OOB builds from my personal “hobby shop” in addition to working on regular long term p[...]

Meng Jadgpanther Ausf. G11:35

Another great kit from Meng. This will be paired with my Plattformwagen Type SSys for a rail transport vignette. I was torn about how much weathering to apply, thinking that a tank in transit wouldn't be as dirty and worn as something out in t[...]

RPM 1/35 Schneider 75mm 97

Another dip into my stash for my 6th ‘staying-at-home, no-frills, build and paint’ project. August begins with 'A' which stands for Artillery. Have had this RPM 1/35 75mm 1897 Schneider waiting to be built for some time. This was very basic o[...]

Heller 1/72 D.H 89 Dragon Rapide

My fifth monthly ‘staying-at-home, no-frills, stash-reduction, build and paint’ project–July edition. (With the off-and-partially on again shutdown I wonder how long to keep this going.) This is a vintage-1979-Heller kit of an interesting subje[...]

Airfix 1/72 MIG-15

My fourth monthly ‘staying-at-home, no-frills, stash-reduction, build and paint’ project--June edition. A nice little kit that was one of Airfix's new generation. Apparently it received mixed reviews because the fuselage is a little short and s[...]
