There is no pilot of World War I in any air force who more fits the mythology of the "Great Flying Ace of the Great War" than The Arizona Cowboy, Frank Luke. The working-class kid with no education around a bunch of upper-class "college boys," [...]
This is a ten day wonder. It is the Airfix 1/48 scale kit, and took me about 14 hours total over 10 days. The personal markings are home made as is the aircraft ID. Under the tail is my brother-in-laws birthday as the civilian ID number, and [...]
This plane was my third official build and it was and still is my favorite build, but the b-26 will probably surpass this plane for the favorite build spot once I finish it.
This plane was my first real attempt at painting according to directi[...]
No real reason why I built this kit. I build very few whirly-birds, but this one just appealed to me. It is kinda cute. All of the high-vis is Testors Flourescent Red, out of the little square bottle we all know and love. Other than the red,[...]
after agreement with the sponsor of the competition I would like to share with you my feelings of this kit :). It is simply gorgeous !! All parts are made absolutely great without burrs. Rivets are very accurate like other details on th[...]
this one is for a friend, it may sound bad but i would like to win him the 1/32 MUSTANG !
he has helped me so much with my modelling and couldn't think of a better surprise,
Aftermarket sets used,
Trumpeter's 1/350 Admiral Graf Spee, done as she looked at the Battle of the River Plate, December 17, 1939.
I remember seeing "Death In The South Atlantic", the US title for "Battle of the River Plate" in about 1957-58. Saw it in its restored[...]
I broke one of my own rules and bought this kit a short while (probably 6-8 months) back when Squadron ran a great deal on it. I had always liked the vehicle regardless of its impracticality and the real lack of need for it by the time it was c[...]
Some more of my 'paleomodeling', the Blue Max Halberstadt. I have always liked the lines of the Halberstadt CL's. The kit was a typical 'limited production' from a few years back, you had to make the parts go together. Covered with acrylics and [...]
Model of dioramas, about which I have spoken. Almost from box assembly, said only the pilot.
Perhaps the aircraft will be too yellow, my mistake, but had to paint in the evenings under the lamp. And so probably got the wrong shade.
