Building, painting and finishing aircraft models of all scales.

As long as we’re now into Fw-190s…

This is the Hasegawa 1/32 kit with the Montex conversion to do the Fw-190A-3 flown by Hans "Assi" Hahn of JG2 in 1942. It's an easy drop-fit conversion with a full fuselage. Decals from Eagle Cals.

Hobbycraft CF-105 “Arrow”

This is the "New tool" Hobbycraft CF-105, in 1/48th scale. The kit comes in a rather large, sturdy box, which is really needed because this is a big model. I'm impressed with the size of the completed model every time I look at it; those designe[...]

Hasegawa 1/32nd Fw190A-6

Here is Oblt. Georg Schott's "Weise 11", Staffelkapitaen of 1./JG-1 while based at Deelen, Holland in the autumn of 1943. This one also has the Eagle Editions propeller & spinner, cowl gun cover, and wheels. I also used the RB Productions p[...]

RAAF Spitfire Mk. VIII

This is a 1/48 Otaki kit built in 2002. I followed the Aeromaster decals painting instructions which stated that the Ocean Gray portions of this plane were over-sprayed with "Mixed Green". They described this green as a lighter version of inte[...]

Peter Carmichael’s Korean War “MiG Killer” Hawker Sea Fury

I started work on this airplane about 5-6 years ago. I stopped working on scale models for several reasons but this Sea Fury and the Mirage F-1 that I did as a CSAF plane were about half-finished and they taunted me to complete them for years. [...]

Horse of a different color Cavalier Mustang 1/48 Tamiya conversion

Build a couple years ago, I was unpacking this from the trip back from the IPMS Nats in Orlando, and thought I'd get a couple pics before putting it back in the display case. I have many happy memories of attending airshows with my father and th[...]

AU-1 Corsair 1/48 Monogram conversion

Yet another installment of long ago modelling. A Chance Vought AU-1 Corsair built from the Monogram F4U-4 kit over 27 years ago! This model was built to compete in a local contest that had the 'Korean War' as a show theme. The AU-1 was chose[...]

Eduard 1:48 Fokker Dr.I

My Fokker triplane made some years ago for TMMI. markings of Ltn Eberhard von Stapenhorst of Jasta 11 (four victories). A/C brought down by ground fire 13 January, 1918 and captured. all markings painted. Fokker streaking done with mixed artist [...]

Airfix Mig-15

Not the most sophisticated kit nor the most accurate. However, if your on a budget or your buying for a youngster or need a simple straight build that doesn't take months this is a good kit to buy. Some folks don't care for the engraved panels l[...]
