My “what if” projects.

Some kits for me just lend themselves to a "what if" project. The two anigrand resin kits, XR-11, XR-12 for example (although I am ready to swear off resin kits, very painful to build). Sometimes an incomplete project for whatever reason has [...]

Lindberg 1/48 F-8J Crusader
