Building, painting and finishing aircraft models of all scales.

Hobby Craft 1/48 Bell P-59 Airacomet

Since this was my first attempt at building a jet, why not build America's first attempt as well. Did purchase a True Detail cockpit set and it fit extremely well, the kits office is a joke. Saw a photo of a P-59 with drop tanks so I added those[...]

Classic Airframes 1/48 He-51 Legion Condor

Hello everyone, today we have the early period of the Luftwaffe - He-51. Model of Classic Airframes, quite good, but still requires work hard. The cockpit is almost completely self-made, a lot of fuss was with landing gear. Was not easy as the a[...]

British Corsairs – Tamiya 1/48 F4U-1A

Both Corsair IIs, the FAA designation for the Vought-built F4U-1A. The British were the second-largest user of the Corsair. While the US Navy was sending the Corsair to the Marines because it couldn't operate from a carrier (too bouncy, to lon[...]

1/48 Monogram B-25H

Received this kit as part trade from the daughter of an IPMS modeler. Was one of my first attempts at building a twin prop AC. The B-25H was designed as a commerce strafer and carried a 75MM cannon in the nose as well as four .50 Cal Mg's. Some [...]

1/32 Hasegawa FW 190D9 Dora “Papagei Staffel “

This is 1/32 Hasegawa Focke Wulf 190D9 finished in the markings of Platzschutzstaffel (Airfield protection squadron). Jagdverband 44 was established in February 1945 as a jet fighter squadron. Because of the greater length of runway it required,[...]

Another Dora

The second Eduard 1/48 I built, I can't seem to locate the pictures from my first build. A few errors here and there, but I really love these kits fiddly, but fun and the weekend ones are a great value. I chose "Brown 17" since I could find no [...]

Hasegawa 1/48 AU-1

Done with the Victory Decals sheet to create the airplane flown by Col. John Bolt, one of the original VMF-214 pilots (If you ever wanted to hear the real story of Pappy Boyington, as opposed to Pappy's drunken baloney, you should have heard wha[...]

Think Cheap

I enjoy trying to make something out of an inexpensive kit. This is a Hobby Boss 1/72 Bf-109g-6 in Georg Amon's markings from JG 53. I did cram an Eduard PE interior into it mainly for the instrument panel & belts. I'd guess my total investm[...]

1/48th Tamiya P-47D, Ole Cock III

This is my P-47 that was built out of the box except for the decals which are from the Wolf Pack series by Aeromaster. I have always loved the P-47 and when I was a kid I built at least a half dozen of the Monogram kits and painted them up fro[...]

Douglas A-1J Skyraider

Here's my latest build and first attempt at an Internet upload. The 1:48 Tamiya A-1 was a pleasure to build, my only additions were the Eduard zoom set, hypodermic needle gun barrels and a Milliput shroud behind the cockpit. It was painted with [...]
