1/32 Tamiya P-51D Mustang 'Daisy Mae'

For sheer looks and glamour in the display case it's hard to beat a Mustang. In this case an ETO version assigned to one Lt Allen K Abner, a Block 10 variant of the venerable P-51 built in Inglewood, California. I had no idea who 'Daisy [...]

EoJ GB: Mitsubishi A6M2b Zero type 21, Hasegawa 1/48

Finally I had the opportunity to join this fantastic GB with a Mitsubishi A6M2b Zero. As a matter of fact, Spiros @fiveten, invited me to join his already started thread with my Zero as well and do a combo build. I was honored to receive [...]

Opération Mousquetaire...1/48 Republic F-84F Thunderstreak, Armée de l´Air

27/2021 And my dad has finished another one. This time a French Thunderstreak during the Suez Crisis in 1956, using the Italeri boxing of the Kinetic kit. The fuselage stripes come as decals. There are also decals for the blue wing tips [...]

Airfix 1/48 Spitfire XIX

AMP 1:72 scale Sikorsky H-5/HO3S-1

1/32 Tamiya Supermarine Spitfire Mk XVIe

Tamiya F4U-1A Corsair, 1/48. Ira Kepford's Jolly Roger.

Background I've always loved the Corsair, particularly the mid-war four-tone scheme, and last year I built my first one which was Tom Blackburn's 'Big Hog'. A year later I wanted to do a new Corsair because I felt my skills had improved [...]

Italeri 1/72 F-4G Wild WeaselEuro Scheme

Another addition to my Phantom project - an old Italeri kit. I did extensive riveting, and scratch-built the upper rear instrument panel, and I had to close off the back deck of the cockpit, but that's about all the additions to the box [...]

Flying Leathernecks...1/48 Vought F4U-1 Corsair, VMF-213 "Hell Hawks", USMC

26/2021 Here´s my dad´s newest model. Tamiya kit, Eduard seatbelts, EZ line for brake lines and antenna wires, painted with a blue-gray selfmix /Tamiya XF-18 + XF-2) and Gunze H51 Light Gull Grey. Wanted to use HGW wet transfers. My dad [...]
