What if? What if the Confederate States of America had survived the American Civil War? What if the CSA had survived right up into the present? Well, that's the premise behind this aircraft. I created a scenario in which today's CSA co-exist[...]
This is the 40 year-old Nichimo Sonia kit just finished a couple weeks ago. This kit was way ahead of its time with its quality and detail. Hope you enjoy the pics!
This idea hatched in August, 2011 when my sister expressed her love for the Mustang!! "It's shiny and sounds so cool"!! Little light bulb in my head went "Ping!" and this was the result. It is my first time playing with Alclad and making my[...]
Like I said before, yesterday was far from perfect photography weather at Chino, but when there's something interesting on the ramp, haul out the camera and shoot. I haven't seen the Seversky outside in years. This is the 2-seat version of the[...]

Hasegawa's 1/48 Ki-61. I finished this one a couple of years ago. OOB.
Okay kiddies. How's this for a nightmare inducer. I had more fun painting this darn thing. I had to do a little surgery to it to make it PG13 rated, but that's not really a big "Thing".
This huge lump of resin is over 22 inches tall, but only[...]
