Building, painting and finishing aircraft models of all scales.

Revell 1/72 Avro Shackleton – WL747 “Florence” 8 Squadron RAF Lossiemouth 1979

This one was personal. We used to get most of our AEF at Lossiemouth when I was in the Cadets and whilst this was mostly Chippie based, one glorious summer Sunday we got a long flight in this Grey Lady. Still one of the most memorable times I ha[...]

Revell 1/144 BaE Harrier Gr. 7

I finished this up a week or two ago. It's built OOB and weathered with Ammo by Mig Oilbrushers. The hangar backdrop is from Coastal Kits.

F8F-1B Bearcat, VNAF 1st FS 1963

When I bought this kit, I was really dissapointed. Really poor in everything. I was almost convinced to put it into trash bin. But then I saw some works of one guy, who built really old fashioned and really really poor kits so nicely that I star[...]

Republic P-47M Thunderbolt, Tamiya

Tamiya kit, Tamiya acrylics and AK interactive extreme metal. Did not weather this one, like it bright and shiny :) great kit.

Mitsubishi Ka-14 (FineMolds 1/48)

Mitsubishi Ka-14 by FineMolds in 1/48 scale. One of the best model kits I've built recently. Comes together really easy and enjoyable. Highly recommended! With this build I was experimenting again with the weathering and shading, so I didn't ma[...]

F-16A IAF ‘Netz’ – ESCI 1/72 Fighting Falcon

Just completed last night. this ESCI kit #9026 was initiated a long time ago and was put in storage with the fuselage and wings assembled. Pulled out of storage, I worked on the build and paint on and off the last few months. I decide to go for [...]

Meet the Fokkers…

... Eduard 1/48 Dual Combo kit, totally OOB. Due to too small/vague locating pins, these guys are a bit fiddley, especially having to apply the wing decals first. On the second model I learned that attaching the positively located "N" struts f[...]

New pics of an old model…

... other pics posted here before, but as Black History Month comes to a close soon, I thought an homage to the Tuskegee Airmen was in order. No 72, "Ina the Macon Belle", flown by Lee Archer- One half of the 332nd's "Gruesome Twosome", the oth[...]

1/48 Hasegawa F-86F-30

This was Major John Glenn's F-86F-30 in the late stage of the Korean war. I just added the Aire cockpit detail set to make it more interesting. Unfortunately, this model's windshield is on the thick side, so the interior is hard to see. I use[...]
