KI-45 tei hei. ZoukeiMura

This is the ZoukeiMura kit SOB-except for the tail wheel. The story here is that I had built the ID vac kit years ago. I was working on the ZM kit. My 2 cats found the ZM tail wheel in the box- never to be seen again🤨. The very nicely done vac k[...]

Finnish Fokker D XXI series 3

This is the Silverwings Fokker D XXI that has been modified from the original ”Dutch” layout. The Finnish manufacturer Valtion license built eighty-nine airframes following the delivery of seven template aircraft from Holland. These aircraft use[...]

COVID No. 13. AlleyCat CAC Boomerang

My final covid build for 2020🥺. This a resin kit. Overall I was pleased when it was completed. The Boomerang was a panic development fighter from the Wirraway by the Aussies at the beginning of the war. It did not have much air to air action, bu[...]

COVID No.12 1/32 IBG Pzl-11c

In total summation of this kit- WOW! I could not believe the plastic when I opened the box for this kit. I had built several kits of this bird over the years, but this in a totally new league of detail. The wing and fuselage corrugations are in[...]

1/32 Trumpegawa Grumman F6F3 Hellcat

I was intrigued in doing this conversion of Trumpeter wings/ Hasegawa fuselage after reading an online article someone who had accomplished this. Looking on eBay this spring, I saw both kits for $30-40 range. Wheels began spinning and I bought o[...]

COVID No.10 Hasegawa Junkers Ju-87G2

This plane is “ugly as sin “ as one might say. Also ,slow with the attached cannon, but it was supposed to take out tanks not aircraft. I bought the kit in May and completed it in September. Quick for me, but had plenty of time. To correct some [...]

Covid No.8 and No.9 ‘46 What Ifs

No. 8. DO(rnier)Re(ggiane)Me(sserschmitt) -2005 Vogelsong. This is the Pacific Coast Models kit. I really have enjoyed there Italian birds. Since the Reggiane Re-2005 had been tested by the Germans toward near the end of the war, I decided to ta[...]

Covid No.7 1/32 AZUR D-520

This was started in 2018 and sat on shelf until Covid came along waiting for external paint job. I was a little intimidated with the stripes and the camouflage. Still not best job. Nothing special with the build, but was had to be careful with [...]

Covid No.6 Revell Me-262 B

One of rare builds for me. Started and completed within six months!! This is very nice kit overall. The gun cover fit is fiddley, but with a little time worked ok. Basically OOB. Some added brake lines and seatbelt decals from the kit were added[...]
