Messerschmitt Bf109-E3

Tamiya 1/48 scale North American P-51D Mustang of the 4th Fighter Squadron, 3rd Air Commando Group.

1/48 AMtech P-40F/L

Had the distinct pleasure of meeting John Leaher and Herb Heibrun at a book signing for their book "Black and White Airman". Both men grew up in Cincinnati and during the war John flew with the "Tuskegee Airman" and escorted Herb on missions in [...]

French Cannon, model 1878, 1:48, scratchbuilt

So far I have not been stopped, continue to post my models :)) This time - artillery, namely French cannon in 1878. Caliber can be 120 or 155 mm, because the model will get a little bigger 48th scale. So it is rather a collective image of French[...]

Eduard 1/32 Bf-109E-4

Eduard's Bf-109E-4, done as Galland's airplane. usd the Squadron vac canopy to correct the early-release incorrect canopy. In 1984 I had the opportunity to meet Galland (along with Gunther Rall and Walter Krupinski) at the AFAA convention. H[...]

Worst of the Best? Or: How i rescued a discarded model from certain destruction (Tamiya F4U-1D, 1/72nd Scale)

When was the last time you saw someone build a Brewster Corsair?? The story of this model begins in failure. I had gotten this model almost ready for the "Fiddly Bits" in 2004 when it suffered a catastrophic structural failure at the wing-fusel[...]

Dragon ‘Smart Kit’ 1/35 Panther Ausf A

This is one of the few armor kits I have built. All of my armor is OOB, due to it being built for an in club build contest, which follows the IPMS Out Of Box rules. I chose to build this kit because I have always liked the "modern" look of the[...]

F-51-R Interceptor 1/48th scale High Planes Models

Had England fallen to Germany and the Luft '46 “Amerika-Bomber” been produced in large numbers and able to bomb America, it would have to be intercepted and fast. Before the fall of England Rolls Royce was able to send to Packard the plans for t[...]

1/48 Revell F-84G

One of my first jets was this re-release of Revell's F-84G. Was a real treat to build, parts fit extremely well and this model required no putty at all. Built OOB and the only thing I added were belts. If you like decals this is the kit for you,[...]

Nakajima Ki-84 Hayate

The nasty old Tamiya 1/48 scale kit. A truly awful kit, built in the markings of a machine belonging to the 1st Sentai, 1st Chutai, which operated from Clark Airfield in the Philippines during late 1944.
