While I mostly model WW II aircraft, I will make any model that strikes my fancy.

8th Hussar

Another of my old figures. This one was kindly offered to me by Ron Souza to review for Historical Miniature Magazine, this is Mili-Men King’s Shilling 120 mm 8th Hussar painted in oils. I scratch built the background.

There Was a Time…

In the 90’s when all of my modeling was figures. This is a figure from that period. Ron Souza sent this to me to write up a review for his Historical Miniature Magazine. It’s been so long I can’t remember the manufacturer and my old mags are too[...]

I’ll Call it a Flat

In the summer of 1968 we took a family vacation trip to visit my grandparents in Minnesota and Montana. Along the way we played the Shell Presidents Coin game. Eventually the coins, or more accurately medallions, were tossed out. Thirty years la[...]

“Give me night, or give me Blücher!”

My version of David Grieve’s 1/9 scale Blücher. Painted in oils.

Airfix Vampire

From a few years ago here’s my 1/72 Airfix De Havilland Vampire T. 11. At the time I made this one I had done a couple of the “new Airfix” kits and was very much enjoying them. I picked this one up as an impulse buy and found it to be another en[...]

Swift

And another one of my older kits to archive, here’s my 1/72 Airfix Supermarine Swift FR 5 from about 5 years ago. When I was a “littler” kid in the late 60’s I made several of the old Hawk Models Swifts. Those were always fun kits to make but, [...]

Revell AG Hunter

Another one of my older projects to archive, here’s my 1/72 Revell AG Hawker Hunter Mk. 58. I think I made this one between 2008 and 2010. I do remember the outer wing leading edge extensions were molded with the upper wing half and needed a l[...]

John or Nathan?

In an effort to get back to archiving the models in my collection, I present my version of the Fort Duquesne Military Miniatures 7th Cavalry Officer in 1/9th scale. It’s pretty obviously based on John Wayne as Captain Nathan Brittles. I painted[...]

It’s Not Spock

Inspired by the new-tool Airfix Vulcan, which I immediately put on pre-order the day that was possible, I pulled the GWH 1/144 Vulcan K. 2 out of the stash as my last build of 2019. On the whole it’s a nice kit for 1/144 scale. The cockpit in[...]

Airfix 1/72 Harrier GR 3

Here’s my Airfix 1/72 Hawker Harrier GR 3. I bought this kit to eventually add one to my collection of RAF fighters, but I was never a big fan of the type. To me the Harrier just didn’t look right. Boy how my attitude has changed since putting[...]
