I’ve been an avid modeler since I was 9 years old. My Father was in the US Air Force so I have always been addicted to aircraft. My first kit was a Hasegawa 1/72 T-38A. I remember getting glue everywhere and not painting it. My skills have improved over the years but to me not to contest level. I dropped out of modeling for about a year after I was diagnosed with Muscular Dystrophy. But I couldnt stay out long. Now I’m back in and love it. Starting to build up a nice collection of Jets right now, but will also do WWII and newer prop jobs. I mainly build 1/48 scale but will go 1/72 for larger aircraft…My holy grail airplane would be the old Aurora 1/108 scale C-141A Starlifter. My dad built me one of those when I was a kid and wish I still had it.

Going to challenge my modeling skills….and try a diorama of this picture……

Its been a long time since I've been on this site....had alot going on and have not been doing any building.....fixing to start a new project though..I'm use to just building out of the box or using a few resin bits and aftermarket decals. but n[...]

1/48 Hasegawa F-16C Polish Air Force

Hasegawa 1/48 F-16C straight out of the box except using TwoBob's Polish Air Force decals. I am currently working on a Polish Air Force jet collection and since they are now a part of NATO and are flying F-16's I had to add that to the collectio[...]

1/48 Revell (Monogram) Case X Wing F-102

This kit was a bear to get together...must have been slightly older kit because there was quite a bit of flash and some parts warped. It didnt want to fit to well either. I have always wanted to build an F-102 from the 4780th ADW at Perrin AFB[...]

Academy 1/48 Mig-21MF Polish Air Force

I am trying to build several from Polish Air Force and this is the first...Academy Mig-21. Built straight from the box except old ESCI decals. This kit goes together real well, might have a few fit problems bot not many. I forgot though that bar[...]

Well I finally finished my first build of 2013...It took a while but got'er done. Pretty much built straight from the box except I used SuperScale decals. This one will be a great addition to my Jolly Rogers collection...of course its the only o[...]

This is the only Italian aircraft I have right now... This is the Hasegawa Macchi Mc.202 Folgore. This kit was built straight from the box except Superscale Decals. I cant remeber the squadron its from though...I did this one before I learned th[...]

Holy Batcrap Batman!!!!! It’s the Batmobile… Round 2’s 1966 Batmobile 1/25 scale

I kinda cheated with this one... My wife gave it to me for Christmas 2011. The reason I say I cheated is this is the Round 2 Snap Together kit with pre-painted body. The reason I wanted this one is because it comes with Batman and Robin figures.[...]

Since I'm showing off my Luftwaffe stuff now, here is a cool one..This is the Hasegawa Macchi C.205 Veltro of JG77. This kit was built straight from the box. I was able to acquire the Mike Grant "Smoke Ring" decals to do this one. My airbrush i[...]

Pro-Modeler Fw190D-11 1/48 scale

This is the Pro-Modeler Fw190D-11 built straight from the box. I was planning on using a real cool Eagle Strike decal set on this one but its for a D-9 not the D-11 so I used the kit decals. I chickened out on the red bottom scheme so I went wit[...]
