Retired, Ocala Florida resident since 1978. I build 1/72 and 1/48 aircraft primarily, but delve into 1/144th. 1/72 (or close) Boats, 1/24th cars, 1/32-35th and assorted stuff, fill in the gaps, and prevent “burn-out”. I’m a member of IPMS since 1983, a currently an officer in our local chapter. My current collection is over 400 on the shelf, and an equal number in my stash. I’d like to be able to share “the good, the bad, and the ugly”, with my fellow modelers.

1/48 Pegasus EZ Build FW-190

This started life as a club project, where everyone was to build a 1/48 Pegasus EZ Build kit, a snap-tite, any way we wanted to. This done in authentic Kreigsmarine A/C colors, with the obvious float added. Lots of fun, and some eyeballs rol[...]

1/48 Otaki P-40E War Hawk

An old, pleasant, OOB build. Nothing special or extraordinary. The paint, as usual, is de-canned Krylon mixed. An affordable way to go.

1/48 Hobbycraft Corsair

Just another fun paint job, adding some old IPMS convention decals that were laying around.
