I mostly do 1/48 USN and British Commonwealth aircraft, all eras. I also have a weakness for WW1 German planes and 1/700 ships.

Rhodesian Spitfire F.22

My latest Spitfire. It's an Airfix 1/48 kit. Completed about a month ago using Humbrol enamels and an old Eaglestrike sheet for the Rhodesian markings. I never get tired of Spitfires!

Korean War F-94B

1/48 Hobbycraft kit finished with SNJ spray metal and Experts Choice decals. To my knowledge, this kit was only released once in the late '80s. I finally built this example in 2009.

Accurate Miniatures F3F-1

This is my favorite kit of all time. 1/48 scale. I painted this entirely with Tamiya spray cans, except for the red cowl ring. The cowl ring was painted with a Testors lacquer spray can red that was an exact match for the Yellow Wings decals [...]

Monogram TBD

The fifth example of this old kit I've built over the years. Yellow Wings decals were used.

Otaki Tojo

An old Otaki kit that I had some fun with a few years ago. I love finding things like this at contest swap meets and entering them the next year!
