Picked up this kid at a local club in a beat up box with no decals for $2. We can make this work, just add some True Detail wheels, some decals and the pilot because the cockpit lacks detail, and presto-change-o we have a P-47D. Used Tamyia ratt[...]
Here are three pictures of my recently-completed WNW 1/32 Fokker D.VII (Fokker-built) in Willi Gabriel's markings. There will be a full review over at Modeling Madness on Wednesday.
Kit. Of. The. Year.
Keeping with the WWI theme, this is my first Wingnut Wings model. Another outstanding kit from the New Zealand modelers. I used Tamiya acrylics, as usual, for all of the colors. I paid particular attention to getting a 'used' look to the camo co[...]

Built out of box. Used Model Master paints and Eagle Cal decals. Pilot figure is from Hasegawa. Base done with Woodland Scenic products.
Built out of box. Used Alclad and Model Master paints along with kit decals.

This is the Airfix 1/48 kit which is probably the most accurate F.1 around, but not easy[...]
This is my representation of George Marrett's "Sock it to 'em" - a A-1J of the 602nd SOS Nakhon Phanom, RTAFB circa 1968/69.
Anyone interested in SPAD's should read George's book "Cheating Death" which covers his time flying the SPAD with the 6[...]
