KittyHawk Super Etendard 1/48 . . . .

Hello All, This is the KittyHawk Super Etendard kit built completely OOB. Paints used are locally available acrylics. Masking was done using my Kiddoo's Play Dooh. Few inaccuracies if I am being nit picky, do check your references for the decal[...]

Double Trouble Two

Tamiya 1/48th Scale, straight out of the box fun build. Back in the 80’s Don Davidson used to venture to a few airshows near Ohio from his New England base in his restored version of Double Trouble. The paint scheme always stood out. I found the[...]

Toulouse Nuts TF-51 Conversion, Tamiya 1/48

Back around 2014 we started looking at getting a replacement for Betty Jane on the Wings of Freedom Tour. About that time Mark Timken was looking to sell off several of his projects, including a TF, and a few FW-190s. A deal was struck and the T[...]

Multi Colored Canadian F-86 Sabre Jet

Seven (7) has always been my "lucky" number and these 7 images show off my Mk-5 Sabre Jet. I have no idea what the "Mk-5" means and I don't think I did any research. I don't have a photo of the box art, nor do I recall why I chose to build a Ca[...]

Bo-105/pah-1 – italeri

This is my second model. BO-105 is Germany anti tank helicopter. It's quite an old kit, so it's not completely perfect, but it wasn't that bad. Otherwise it is in 1:32 scale. So, I started with the cockpit, it was quite boring, so I added straps[...]

F-15E 333th squadron

An F-15E from Academy, if you are watching my labeb below profile you would notice that I was working on this model. Here it is! I was working on this model almost 2 months, and I must say that I learned a LOT. You probably noticed that the F-[...]

F-86D Sabre Dog Jet

I use to buy lots of airplane magazine, so when this red Sabre was printed, I just had to have a model of it. It's mostly o.o.b. except for some additions to the cockpit.

Pavla 1/72 Fieseler Fi-167

I've always love the look of this aircraft, and when I saw a Pavla kit a few years ago I snatched it up. There were only about a dozen or so Fi-167's built. This was the first Pavla kit I've built (though I've got several more in the stash), an[...]
