Finemolds 1/48 Mitsubishi A5M2b Claude

Hi ya'll..lol. My completed Claude. A fun build though the engine was a bit challenging to fit. In the markings of Hokoku no.132nd, Lait Go, No. 12th naval air corps, China. Love the striking red/bare metal finish. #finemolds #mitsubishi #[...]

1/48 Mauve P-40M/KittyHawk III

Latest off the bench is the old Mauve kit depicted as the mount that Pilot Officer Geoffrey Fisken flew with 14 Squadron on Guadalcanal in 1943. Added a seat plus some Ultracast wheels to spice her up a bit. A combination of Tamiya paints and M[...]

Monogram 1/48 B-24D

It had been years since I built a Monogram B-24D. After reading about the Ploesti Raid of 1 August 1943, I decided on the "Squaw". It survived the raid and went to do a Bond Tour. Naturally, the naked squaw was redone and the Snow White Dwarf[...]

Mitsubishi G4M2 “Betty” Okha Attacker Hasegawa 1/72

Fast building,but to paint the transparencies by hand was something...Gunze IJN Dark Green and Tamiya IJN Gray-green....hope you like it.

Messerschmitt Me109E-3a L-52, Yugoslavia 1/48

OK – things took a turn at the very beginning of the build. Having been spoilt by eduard 109’s the Airfix item is a bit simple and somewhat lacking in detail. Not that it is a bad kit, it is just not an expensive kit. First off, I had a res[...]

Revell’s 1/48 F-15E Strike Eagle

One of Revell's better kits. Went together without any major fit issues. There were some seams to sand, and a few very small areas that needed just a touch of putty. The decals were printed in 2000, and looked iffy at best, but I figured I wo[...]

Ebbro Hondajet 1/48

This past March I was browsing around a LHS in Hong Kong and this kit leaped off the shelf at me. The Hondajet is Ebbro’s first venture producing a plastic airplane kit and first time I had seen it. Until that moment, I had never heard of a Hon[...]

On this Day, Oct. 3rd, 1944. A tribute to Staff Sgt. Thomas J. Bricen Jr. 445th Bomb Squadron, 321st Bomb Group Revell B-25J 1/48 scale

Exactly 75 years ago today, while flying over Italy in the top turret of a B-25 J-1 named "Evora", this young man was killed. This was his 58th Mission. He just had his 22nd birthday a few weeks earlier on September 14th, 1944, and he left be[...]
