Built from the Monogram/Revell kit. Lot's of fit issues with much filling, sanding, re-scribing. Managed to lose 2 of the guns inside during construction. Got lots of dust in the glass nose from all the sanding. When I attempted to tap the nose [...]
Ok ok, maybe not, how about a couple of 1/72 Italeri AH-64D Longbows... with a touch of modelling applied.
Just finished these two, and they were jolly good fun.
The camo one is my effort to model an Israeli Saraf, and the grey one, is my tak[...]
This is the Dragon Messerschmitt Me262 Recon variant, built OOB and painted with Modelmaster and Xtracolor enamels. The decals are from another Ventura sheet, with both ME262's recon & captured options. This machine served in Northern Italy [...]
This is the Revell boxing of the Hasegawa 1/48 Henschel Hs129B-2 kit, featuring the North African option (Blue O). Built OOB with tape belts and painted with Modelmaster enamels.
The colours are RLM 79/80 over RLM 65 as the plane was an overpain[...]
This is the older Revell Bf109G-10 kit, also done in Italian RSI markings.

This is the Hasegawa Bf109G-6 in 1/48 scale, depicted in RSI markings of the famous "Diavoli Rosso" (Red Devils) squadriglia. This Boxing from Hasegawa had two options, both from the same unit, Yellow 7 and yellow 8.
The factory applied German [...]
One of my few ventures into automotive modeling, I won this kit at a club raffle, and just had to build it. I built it box stock, only painting the stripes instead of trying to use the battleship armor they give you for decals. The colour is a[...]
. I have been building a series of models depicting movie stars, aircraft that were used to film one of my favorite movies "The Battle of Britain". The series started with a conversation with good friend about models we would like to build. Both[...]
This is the Trumpeter kit in 1/35th scale. It's a really good kit of the first version of the Ariete. Several resin sets where created to update it. Trumpeter released an updated kit that you can use to build an Ariete that was active in Irak.
Another quirky build-part of the AZ mystique. No idea of how accurate it is, but it's the only one out there.
Not good enough for US combat forces, it served well, particularly with the Indian A.F. There is a great account of Vengeance service, [...]
