Work-In-Progress: 1/32 Trumpeter SBD

Here are some pictures showing some of the assembly steps I took in building this Trumpeter 1/32 SBD Midway Edition. It is currently completely assembled, or at least assembled enough to start the painting process. Most of it is built OOB exce[...]

1/48 Monogram Pro-Modeler F-84 Thunderjet

This is a fairly older model I finally decided to build last year. It sat in my stash for many years. I do apologize for the terrible picture quality, unfortunately they are the only pictures I have left of this model. The model was sold some[...]

1/48 Kinetic T-45 Goshawk: The Advanced Jet Pipeline

Historical Snapshot: (From the Boeing Company Website) In 1978, McDonnell Douglas and British Aerospace developed the T-45A Goshawk, a carrier-suitable version of the British Aerospace Hawk. The first Hawk, which flew Aug. 21, 1974, was establis[...]

Vintage Lindberg Model: 1/72 Curtiss BFC-2

This is a real vintage kit I built some time ago. I always love these pre-war Naval aircraft and try to build all the examples produced in a main-stream kit regardless of how old, and vintage it is. I had this one sitting in my stash for a lon[...]

Project Completed: 1/48 HobbyBoss US Navy F3H-2 Demon

I finally finished my latest workbench project; the F3H-2 Demon in 1/48. If you would like to hear more about my build experience please take a look at my recent build article posted last week, or, on my blog. I had not built a high-visibility[...]

1/35 Academy M1A1 Abrams “IRAQI 2003”

I've built a good amount of armor over the past few years but never an Abrams. Don't know why, maybe to common for my tastes. I'm more of a fan of Cold War machines like the M48, M60, and T-55 series of tanks, or very unique subjects like some[...]

1/35 AFV M35A1 Quad .50 Vietnam Gun Truck

To be honest I really dont know much about this truck as it was used in Vietnam, but when I saw a picture of it on the box top I just needed to build it. I built this a few years back after a brief hiatus from serious model making. My 1st chil[...]

Revell 1/144 U-216: Type VIID U-Boat

This is an "olde but goodie" model I built some time ago, maybe over 10 years ago. Once in a while I go into the basement and look at my old, dusty built models put away in storage. These models in storage are much older then my current builds[...]

The Making of A Demon: WIP Hobby Boss 1/48 F3H-2 Demon

This particular model has certain sentimental value to me because it is the last model purchased by my mother prior to her passing. For years now, really since I have been married with kids, I no longer get any fun Christmas gifts. Now my Chri[...]

1/48 Hasagawa Harrier: The VTOL Warrior of the USMC

Always loved the USMC Harrier II version of this famed jet so a few years ago I decided to build my 1st Harrier. I apologize that I cannot say to much about my build experience b/c I built this some years ago. I do recall it was an enjoyable [...]
