1/48 Hasegawa F-22A Raptor

Latest completion, great kit that goes together without any issues. Finished out as 1st FW Langley AFB, VA.

Teutonic Rhino in Norm 81 Scheme

Who does not like F-4 Phantoms, so many schemes, clean or dirty a real workhorse. Norm 81 fascinated me since my USAFE days. I used to say they were painted like German WWII Luftwaffe to my co-workers. Needless to say that is how I built my H[...]

Heyl Ha’avir Shahak, Giora Epstein’s 1st Victory

1/48 Trumpeter Su-24M2 Komplekt Zipped

The Trumpeter Su-24M2 can be made into a striking example with correction sets from Komplekt Zip. Front and rear fuselage, intakes and nose bring the Fencer in-line to the prototype. The shallow spine is still there but has a negligible effect[...]
