E.E. Lightning F.3

Here's the Airfix Lightning F.3 (1/48th) done with aftermarket decals (Aeromaster, IIRC). This old Airfix kit has its faults, but can be built into a nice model. I like the purposeful look of the Lightning, especially done-up in brilliant 56 Squ[...]

AVRO CF-105 Arrow (1/48th)

I built this model a few years back; it's the Hobbycraft re-release of the CF-105 Arrow. I think this kit is OOP, and is a bit hard-to-find these days. As many of you are familiar with Hobbycraft kits, you know that they are pretty basic, and so[...]

Days of Future Passed (or what Future is called today)

Like many of you, I have used "Future" acrylic for some time. And like you, I have sometimes been bewildered by the frequent name changes of this product. I recently saw on one of the modeling sites the latest iteration of "Future"; it is now ca[...]

Special Hobby T-2C Buckeye (1/48th)

This is the Special Hobby T-2C Buckeye, done in a USN high-viz trainer scheme. This mixed-media kit has been around for a few years, so it is not new, however, it is still a good kit, if one puts in the effort to use the various features that a[...]

Kitty Hawk F2H-2 Banshee

This is the Kitty Hawk F2H-2 done almost OOB, using kit decals. I added Furball canopy decals, along with a scratched metal pitot. Reading the reviews of this KH kit is not very much fun, because they highlight a lot of problems that this kit ha[...]

F7U-3M Cutlass, 1/48th

This is the old Kitech (Hobbycraft) F7U-3M Cutlass in 1/48th scale. I'm sure a lot of you recognise this kit as being pretty crude, devoid of much detail, and just about everything else that modellers these days desire in a model. That's true e[...]

T-34C Turbo Mentor

This is the 1/48th scale Beechcraft T-34C Turbo Mentor by Czech Model, done in kit markings. This kit originally came out in 2002, but it has taken me this long to finish it; I have had the major part of the assembly done for quite awhile, but o[...]

Kitty Hawk F-101C Voodoo

I've had this Kitty Hawk kit since it came out a couple years ago, but it kept getting put on the back burner due to other projects cutting in line. Well, I finally decided to finish the Voodoo, especially since Kitty Hawk has decided to release[...]

Trumpeter A3D-2 Sky Warrior

I picked this kit up when it first came out a few years ago...and I finally got around to building it. I was between kits and I thought this Trumpeter kit would be a fast and easy build... I was so wrong! First of all, this is a large aircraft,[...]

Hobby Boss F-84G Thunderjet 1/32nd scale

Hi everyone: I managed to finish another kit, this time in 32nd scale (I usually do 1/48th). This is Hobby Boss' F-84G which, except for Eduard seatbelts, and some wire brakelines, is OOB. The decals are kit decals; I know, these markings are do[...]
