1:32 Trumpeter TBF Avenger

About a year ago I added a 1:32 TBF Avenger to my stash thinking it would be something I worked on in the long dark days of winter. It’s a huge carrier-based bird and I wanted to build one. Then the virus & quarantine hit and my wife said, [...]

B-26 bomber

I built this model in 1985 and I remembered that I hand painted on the sharks mouth. I use a bare metal paint called; "METALIZER." I was brand new @ model building . I knew nothing about "re-scribing" panel lines. I have no idea how I came up[...]

Under new Management…1/48 Messerschmitt Bf110C-4 Royal Yugoslav Airforce

#15/2020 My dad wanted to build the good old Fujimi 110 now for a while. It can´t keep up with the newer Eduard and Dragon offerings but still makes a nice model. Decided to do an exotic scheme. Used parts from a True Details resin cockpit, EZ [...]

1/48 Fine Molds Mitsubishi Ka-14

This is my first group build for The Empire of Japan. I’m a big fan of Japanese aircraft so I thought I should join the group. I love the animation “The Wind Rises” and I didn’t know about this plane till I saw the movie. The plane was desig[...]

1/72 S-3 Viking

This is the old (1978) Hasegawa S-3 Viking in 1/72, a nice kit that has aged well. Apart from the raised panel lines and over-simplified cockpit, it stands up well against current releases; the fit was amazing, trailing edges were sharp, and it [...]

Salem Representative Tamiya 1/48 scale P-51B Mustang

Salem Representative...Ralph Hofer had a way too short but storied history with the 8th. If you have any interest in Ralph Hofer I highly recommend Troy White's book "Last of the Screwball Aces". On July 2nd 1944, 23 year old Hofer lost his li[...]

Model snow

My last segment was written about using "Bacon Soda" for my snow and became a great learning experience. IT'S LIKE: "Would you put water in your car's gas tank to see if the engine would still operate? I"m re-sending some photo's along with [...]

Museum Piece

This is my fourth and final(!) Lindberg Jenny project. It was love at first sight when I discovered the internet photos of Curtiss Jenny 4983 at the Air and Space Museum - the paint scheme, the unique markings, and the weathering all appealed t[...]
