This is the very old Williams F9C Sparrowhawk. I just had to go back and redo the glue bomb
I put together in about 1965. Now legend has it while the glue was still drying in 65 it managed to shoot down one hundred and sixty six bad guys with o[...]
Here is my Entex 1/24 scale Silver Cloud II. A very basic kit done in the family colors. (of course). This was a fun but a bit laborious on the paint side. Tamiya rattle can with three coats of Future. I have added a fairly new product at the en[...]
O this was a fun one! Seeing that the prototypes are a bit hard to find. You can really let your imagination go wild. What a great excuse for mixing every color of paint at hand. Now the green feather was taken from a feather found here in So C[...]
