1/48 Tamiya P-47 D30 “TuAF Thunderbolt”

Here is my recently (and freshly) finished model. This is 1/48 Tamiya P-47 D30 Thunderbolt with the markings of Turkish Air Force (TuAF). The base kit is Tamiya’s P-47 M . It is built OOB except for Eduard seat belts, instrument panel and Ultra[...]

Hasegawa 1/48 A-7E Corsair II

Here is my Hasegawa 1/48 A-7E 'Valions' . I had started this one back in '06 or '07 and when I got to the LE flaps I sort of ran out of steam with it so it sat on the shelf of doom until last year when I finally dusted it off and decided to fin[...]

Tamiya 1/48 F4U-1A Corsair – Ike Kepford

The kit itself is built OOB other than seat belts. The decals came from Cutting Edge and Aeromaster. I always find it suprising that airplanes as well-documented as VF-17's leading ace Ike Kepford's is keep turning up done wrong. Examining th[...]

My all time favorite build, Old Monogram Devastator.

Yellow Wings decals,fully rescribed and riveted, a lot of scratchbuilding in the interior, then just careful fitting and sanding to get a clean build. Haven't seen the Great Wall one, but I think these old legacy kits are a lot of fun and a gre[...]

1/72 F-14A Tomcat

This is the Fujimi kit with Verlinden seats. The kit missile pylons did not fit very well and were exchanged for a set of pylons from the Hasegawa Tomcat. Also, Superscale decals were used to give this Tomcat the markings of VF-142 Ghostriders. [...]

Eduard 1/48 FW 190D 9 KG(J) 27 big tail. (Now with more pictures)

Last kit completed before I moved to Seattle, haven't gotten my spot set up yet here to keep work going on my F-84.

Armee de l’Air A-24B – 1/48 Accurate Miniatures SBD-5 kit

An SBD with invasion stripes. Actually an A-24B, used by the Armee de l'Air during the battles for the French channel ports in 1944-45. Decals came from a European release of the kit, large tail wheel from the spares box.

1/32 TA-152H1 Pacific Coast Models

One more drop to Luftwaffe collection... Kurt Tank's masterpiece redesigned version of Fw-190D. Altough PCM kit is a iron nut I am happy to completed reasonable finish. Happy modelling Ozkan

1/48 Monogram Heinkel He-111H

This was built 7 years ago with the markings of “KG-100”. OOB built except for the Superscale decal sheet #48-838. Painting was done with Gunze Sangyo acrylics. Paint scheme is well known RLM 70/71 over RLM 65 Happy Modelling

AFV’s 1/48 F-5E Aggressor

A truly superb kit! AFV's F-5E is a joy to build. The only real tedious part was closing up the gun bay. I just took my time and carefully glued all the doors. Fortunately they fit really well. You just have to make sure you fully remove the spr[...]
