I currently work as a criminal investigator for the State of Texas Inspector General’s Office. Prior to that I was with the Abilene, TX Police Department and was a Detective in the Fraud Unit and a member of the SWAT team. I primarily build 1/48 aircraft from WW II and Korea but will occasionally work in a modern jet.

Hasegawa 1/48 A6M3 Zero 22

I added a CMK interior and some wire to the engine and landing gear but that's about it. I am not sure who made the pilot's body but the head is from Reheat. This is my interpretation of Hiroyoshi Nishizawa's aircraft. This is a Mutsubishi buil[...]

1/48 Classic Airframes Bf 109B-2

This was built primarily out of the box with an Ultracast seat added and the prop pieced together from a CMK 109E prop. The documentation is all over the place on this aircraft. I have seen it referred to as a B, C, and D in publications. I w[...]

1/48 Hasegawa F6F-5 Hellcat

This Hellcat was flown by Texas pilot Arthur "Ray" Hawkins of VF-31 on the USS Cabot in September, 1944. I added an Obscureco cowl, Quickboost engine, and Squadron canopy. The pilot figure was bashed together from my parts box...head, torso, leg[...]

1/48 Hasegawa Spitfire Mk VIII

This is the 1/48 Hasegawa Mk VIII Spitfire flown by Squadron Leader Lance Wade. Wade was from Texas and enlisted in the RAF in Canada. Being from Texas myself I like building planes flown by Texas pilots. I apologize to you Spitfire buffs for[...]

1/48 Hasegawa Bf 109G-4/R6 Trop

This project started out as a Bf 109G-2 flown by Theodor Weissenberger of JG 5. The theory was that it was originally a Trop with a 78/79 factory finish that had 70/white applied over it. I applied the 78/79 finish but when I really started lo[...]

1/48 Hasegawa Bf 109G-6/AS

This is the Hasegawa Bf 109G-10 backdated to be a G-6 A/S. I sanded the bulges under the exhaust stacks and rescribed the panel lines. The G-6 oil cooler, Fusion prop, and G-6 fixed tail wheel were added. Paint is a Tamiya mix of RLM 76. I t[...]

1/48 Hasegawa Bf 109K-4
