Fisher 1/32 F9F-5 Panther

Built OOB....just like the F9F-8 Cougar a fantastic resin kit!!! Paint was Mr Color, and gloss was Mr Color out of the rattle can. Thanks, Rob

3 to cure a 3 year hiatus

It's been 3 years since I last indulged in my obsession, I mean hobby. I decided to make up for lost time by bulding 3 at a time. They are almost done, apart from the aerial wires, some weathering and the armoured headrest on Nowotny's 190. A[...]

A Sewart Seacraft 50′ Crewboat

Back in the last century I worked on boats exactly like this in the Gulf of Mexico. For years I've wanted to convert the Monogram Swift Boat back into what it came from - a Sewart Seacraft 50' crewboat, I finally did. The conversion entailed rem[...]

1/48th Cyber Hobby Bf-110D3

I recieved this kit as payment for a brake job from a good friend. I built it out of the box as a review for our local club's news letter. Overall it was a blast to build, with excellent overall detail and generally good fit. It is a complica[...]

1/48 Otaki F6F-3N

This is the Otaki 1/48 F6F-3 with a Hasegawa F6F-5N cockpit and radome. The canopy is a vacuformed replacement and the decals are Superscale. The underwing insignia is hand painted around the radome. I enjoyed working on this as the kit feels as[...]

1/48 Hobbycraft F9F-2 with adjustments

Here is my Hobbycraft F9F-2, with a new nose section- the Monogram F9F-5 forward fuselage (with canopy) suitably shortened to fit the correct length of the F9F-2. I also used Monogram wing tip tanks. I built the kit as one of the Blue Angel Airf[...]

Major Don Schmenk’s F-100

This is the venerable Monogram 1/48th North American F-100. The kit was given to me by retired Air Force Major Don Schmenk. The plane has the markings of the Hun that Schmenk flew in Vietnam. I had the kit for many years before I finally got [...]

Lockheed Model 9 Orion 1/48 AMT conversion

I can't quite remember when this was completed,I'm pretty sure sometime before 1985. The subject is the Lockheed model 9 Orion which shared a number of components with the more well known Vega. I started with the venerable AMT Lockheed Ve[...]

DH-4 in U.S. Mail Service Aurora 1/48

Another of my builds from my distant past. (When did I get so old?!? ) Completed 36 years ago from the even then ancient Aurora DH-4 kit. Modifications include removal of all surface detail, the markings where depicted by raised outlines remem[...]

WNW 1/32 Fokker E.III (late)

A kit that's a lot easier than you might expect. I would recommend it as a "first rigging model" to someone considering doing WW1 models, it's really that simple. Done as the E.III Max Immelmann was shot down in. Completely OOB.
