Ki-84

Here is another old build, this time a 1/32 Hasegawa Ki-84.

Not Yet a Thunderjet: Heller 1/72 XP-84 Conversion

The old 70s-vintage Heller F-84G Thunderjet in 1/72 was converted to represent the prototype XP-84 by cutting the wingtip tanks off and making new tips with styrene sheet, removing the canopy framing and smoothing out/polishing the canopy, and e[...]

Special Hobby 1/48 Fiat G.55 “Sottoserie 0″

This kit I did about four or five years back, when it was first released. As a big fan of Italian planes, it is interesting to compare the G.55 to the Macchi C.202 and C.205. The G.55 went into service in 1943, right before the Italian Armistace[...]

A Trio of Hasegawa Macchis

Hasegawa's 1/48 scale Macchi C.202 and C.205 kits are probably the best 1/48 kits of any WWII Italian aircraft to date. Accurate, well-detailed and well fitting, there are many different decal options available for this series of kits. I did the[...]

Italeri 1/48 Macchi C.200 Saetta

Italeri's 1/48 Macchi 200 Saetta (serie VII) is a welcome release. Previously, there was the old Artiplast (later SMER) kit in 1/50, and Czech short-run derivatives such as Pacific Coast Models (which is also good, but resin and PE fiddly). This[...]

Hobby Boss 1/48th F4F-3 Wildcat ‘Wake Island Defender’

This model went together with no trouble at all. The fit was very good and I experienced no problems with alignment. Paints were Floquil Navy Blue Grey, and US Navy Grey mixed with Concrete from their Railroad Colors line. I used the Eduard whe[...]

Confederate States Air Force Mirage F-1

What if? What if the Confederate States of America had survived the American Civil War? What if the CSA had survived right up into the present? Well, that's the premise behind this aircraft. I created a scenario in which today's CSA co-exist[...]

1/48 Nichimo Ki-51 Sonia

This is the 40 year-old Nichimo Sonia kit just finished a couple weeks ago. This kit was way ahead of its time with its quality and detail. Hope you enjoy the pics!

Tamiya 1/48 scale P-51D Mustang with Custom Markings for a Christmas Present

This idea hatched in August, 2011 when my sister expressed her love for the Mustang!! "It's shiny and sounds so cool"!! Little light bulb in my head went "Ping!" and this was the result. It is my first time playing with Alclad and making my[...]

Chino’s Seversky

Like I said before, yesterday was far from perfect photography weather at Chino, but when there's something interesting on the ramp, haul out the camera and shoot. I haven't seen the Seversky outside in years. This is the 2-seat version of the[...]
