I assembled the model more or less to take a break during the construction of the Pilatus PC-9. It's pretty simple, I'd say a weekend model. A little more cleaning of the plastic is needed, otherwise no major problems. The package contains pract[...]
My first try at making ocean waves. I use my old Hobbyboss 1/72 Sh-60 Jayhawk kit and I modify this by adding rudimentary pilots, ocean door and a winch wire.
The Rotating blades are made by using Clear Acrylic sheet which w[...]
This is the Glencoe 1/59 de Havilland Venom FB.4, finished as Fuerza Aérea Venezolana bird. It was build as part of the great Group Build here.
The de Havilland DH 112 Venom is a British post-war single-engined jet aircraft deve[...]
This is the Monogram/Revell 1/48 scale F9F-5. I won't repeat the well done documentation Tom Cleaver provided for his model of the same aircraft. Just to say Royce Williams in this F9F-5 was responsible for downing four Russian Migs in Novembe[...]

Well detailed and designed kit, that is packed with detail. Built this kit straight from the box, and I still need to weather and "beat her up a tad",using thinned oils and pastels, before adding the fiddlelies.
Great build, and I highly rec[...]
Just a little more weathering and I'll call her finished.
Probably the best engineered model kit of all time....my opinion, but if you've built one or are building one, then I think you know what I am talking about. I will not go into detail a[...]
This is a Eduards over tree kit, no decals no PE, perfect, I didn't need the kit decals and I don't do PE to well. The markings are of a F6F-5N of the Navy Reserve stationed at NAS Floyd Bennett Field Brooklyn NY. 1949. There is a bit of a co[...]
