P-40E Red Star 1/72

This is the 1/72 scale Hasegawa P-40E Warhawk in Red Star dress. I built this one mostly because I looked forward to the painting and I was attracted to the red stars for some reason. This was a rather simple build and only seatbelts was added. [...]

Eduard 1/48th scale Fokker D VII

Built out of box, using kit photo etched parts. Humbrol and Model Master paints were used. Eagle Strike decals were used for the markings of the "Seven Swabians" as well as the upper and lower lozenge. Stainless steel wire was used for the rigging.

Otaki Tojo

An old Otaki kit that I had some fun with a few years ago. I love finding things like this at contest swap meets and entering them the next year!

Eduard 1/72nd scale Fokker Dr.1

Built out of the box. Used Extra Color, Humbrol and Model Master paints. Used streaked decals from Gunsight Graphics over a base of doped linen. Unit marking decals from Pheon, Stretched sprue was used for the rigging.

WNW 1/32 Junkers J.I

I had finally concluded no one would ever do this airplane in a mainstream injection-molded kit, but then WNW came along and made it one of their first releases. There is a problem with the ailerons having a gap at the inboard end. The expensi[...]

WNW 1/32 Pfalz D.XII

Another great WNW kit. I've said it before and will say it again: you can't go wrong with one of these kits. Rigging on this is relatively easy for the "rigging challenged." As is the case with the rest of the series, you can only screw it u[...]

Hasegawa 1:48 P-40N Warhawk

I always liked the P-40N, it's my favorite of the whole Warhawk/Kittyhawk family and I always wanted to do white-tailed New Guinea warrior. Well, here it is, my latest finished build, 1:48 P-40N from Hasegawa. The kit is beautifully detailed, bu[...]

Corsair in flight

This is Tamiya's 1/48 F4U-1A with all of the control surfaces deflected, including trim tabs, the flaps raised, and the gear retracted. I added a Monogram pilot figure with his head turned and looking up. The drop tank has just been punched oi[...]

WNW 1/32 D.H.9A “Ninak”

I always wanted a model of this airplane, especially after seeing John Alcorn's incredible 1/24 scratchbuilt Ninak in person. A big brutal British 2-seater. The model also commemorates the beginnings of Marine Corps aviation. The Northern Bom[...]

WNW 1/32 Pfalz D.IIIa

Probably my favorite of the WNW kits. Pfalz airplanes were always considered a "best second choice" but they sure looked nice. WNW did an "aftermarket" decal sheet for this Pfalz D.IIIa flown by Rudolf "Iron Man" Berthold.
