Building, painting and finishing aircraft models of all scales.
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[...]
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[...]
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[...]

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-[...]
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.
