Gates Learjet 1/48

This is the Revell (Hasegawa) Gates Learjet in 1/48 scale. Despite its age the kit is really nice, well ok you’ll have to live with the raised panel lines. This is my only airliner/bizjet so far and I built is just because I like the look of th[...]

Tamiya A6M2 1/32 scale Progress pictures

1/48 Hasegawa F6F-5P conversion

I wanted to do a Hellcat in these markings ever since I saw the photo in a Hellcat reference, the Model Graphics book on the Hellcat. When I found out that Superscale put decals out for one of these VF-84 aircraft, I went ahead with it. I used [...]

1/48 Tamiya P-47D

This is my latest completion, and second Tamiya Thunderbolt. I didn't achieve the transparent look on the grey that I was aiming for, but it will have to do..lol The only issues I have with the kit are the oversized hub on the Hamilton Standard [...]

Airfix 1/72 Bird Dog

The Airfix Bird dog in the scheme of a NZ owned aircraft ZK-NAM. I replaced the ill fitting cokpit roof clear parts, and removed the horrible ejector pin marks on the tail and wings, but left everything pretty much as in the box. Used frisk f[...]
