Building, painting and finishing aircraft models of all scales.
There is no pilot of World War I in any air force who more fits the mythology of the "Great Flying Ace of the Great War" than The Arizona Cowboy, Frank Luke. The working-class kid with no education around a bunch of upper-class "college boys," [...]
This is a ten day wonder. It is the Airfix 1/48 scale kit, and took me about 14 hours total over 10 days. The personal markings are home made as is the aircraft ID. Under the tail is my brother-in-laws birthday as the civilian ID number, and [...]
This plane was my third official build and it was and still is my favorite build, but the b-26 will probably surpass this plane for the favorite build spot once I finish it. This plane was my first real attempt at painting according to directi[...]
No real reason why I built this kit. I build very few whirly-birds, but this one just appealed to me. It is kinda cute. All of the high-vis is Testors Flourescent Red, out of the little square bottle we all know and love. Other than the red,[...]
Hey Guys, this one is for a friend, it may sound bad but i would like to win him the 1/32 MUSTANG ! he has helped me so much with my modelling and couldn't think of a better surprise, Aftermarket sets used, Aires cockpit, aussie decals T[...]

Model of dioramas, about which I have spoken. Almost from box assembly, said only the pilot. Perhaps the aircraft will be too yellow, my mistake, but had to paint in the evenings under the lamp. And so probably got the wrong shade.
This has got to be one of the all time classic's of fighters of the 50's and is right up there with the F-86 in the looks dept. Once I saw the kit sitting on the shelves of my local hobby store it got adopted and brought home. The paint scheme i[...]
This is "Ruthie", done from the same Bombshell Decals sheet Steve Towle did "Solid Jackson" from - I sent around the decals I got for review and six of us did models from the decals for a "group review" at Modeling Madness. The B-25s based on [...]
I got this kit at a club auction, in a plastic baggie, with instructions, but sans decals. I built it out of nostalgia for old kits, built when I was younger, but with an adult 'eye'. I replaced the missing decals with a borrowed 1/48 kit decal [...]
