I’m returning to modeling after a long hiatus and courtship with RC scale modeling. I’m an aircraft maintenance supervisor working for the company formerly known as Continental Airlines. Been fortunate enough to work and fly on several WWII aircraft, which are my favorite subjects, especially the lesser known ones and the ones with oddball paint jobs.

Korea – The Forgotten War GB. North American F-82G Twin Mustang

The F-82 was originally intended as a long range escort fighter, intended to shepherd B-29 raids to Japan beyond the range of the P-51 Mustang or P-38 Lightning. That role went out the window with the end of WWII, and those F-82's that had alre[...]

Korea – The Forgotten War GB. Brubaker’s ride, McDonnell F2H Banshee

Talk about timing. This one got finished this morning, the 70th anniversary of the start of the Korean Conflict. Louis sent the invite to join the group this morning as well, so I guess I'll kick off the forgotten war group build with one of i[...]

Some odd old parts wanted…

Not sure if this is the place to post this, but I didn't see the marketplace in the groups section. I'm looking for some old parts; need canopies for a 1/42 Strombecker / Aurora TT-1 Pinto, and for the 1/48 Hawk / Testors F2H Banshee. Hope som[...]

iModeler goes to the movies, sort of… 1/48 Grumman F9F-5 Panther

This started off as my first choice for the Movie group build and was supposed to be the Brubaker Panther from "The Bridges at Toko Ri" until about several others announced intentions to do the same airplane. Not being a herd animal and despera[...]

Modeling day with the grandsons

Nose Art Group Build – final update

We're in the final push of the Nose Art group Build. Deadline is March 31, 2019, but no need to feel rushed, entries will continue to be accepted past that date. Hope everyone is having fun with their builds and I'm really looking forward to s[...]

Nose Art Group build – update

The Group build is still in full swing, and by popular demand I've decided to extend the deadline once again until March 31, 2019. Hopefully, that will give everyone a little more time to complete their models for this and the other groups that[...]

Nose Art Group Build

Just a friendly reminder that the Nose Art Group Build is still ongoing. The deadline is January 31, 2019, but if anyone still wants to participate and needs additional time, please let me know and I can extend the deadline. I know there are m[...]

Family, Friends, Food, Florida, Flying, Fun and good memories, but not necessarily in that order…..part 2

Louis Gardner was kind enough to put up with Joe Caputo and me for an entire day that turned into quite a memorable one. The tour of the American Aero Services shop in New Smyrna Beach, FL, was the icing on the cake, but most important was meet[...]
