I've always loved these big planes by Revell. This is probably the fifth triplane I've built since the sixties. Details include etched brass from Tom's Modelworks, decals by Americal Gryphon (crosses only, the rest was painted on).
Like most modellers, I'm always looking for new ideas for vignettes and dioramas, and I recently came across the following site. Rare historical photos - the facade of Mussolini's Fascist HQ, a partly-built Eiffel Tower, London in the Blitz, or [...]
This is an older build that I finally got around to photographing last Thursday. I took it and several other models (see the Bell AH-1S Cobra) to another small-town airport, the Coffield Regional Airport in Rockdale, Texas, about 20 miles away[...]
This is the 1/48 Hasegawa F-86 Sabre, using the Cutting Edge resin conversion set and Meteor Productions decals to create an F-86A Sabre.
It is very likely that the world's first supersonic aircraft was not the Bell X-1 research aircraft, but [...]
Here's a build that's 15-20 years old but I had never taken it to the airport until last Thursday. It's the old Monogram kit from 1986 and mine is painted in Israeli livery. It's pretty much OOB but I did add a bit of screening to the turbine [...]

Hello! Represented his a fresh model, Nieuport-11 from the company Amodel. Not a very good cast, but decent the copy. Color option is selected a typical airplane construction plant Dux, about 1916.
Some of you may well be asking why do we need another 1/48 Spitfire?? Hasegawa, and Tamiya have both produced excellent kits of the Vb, and there are readily available kits by some of the short run producers - Whether or not any of these have ac[...]
Tibenham Airfield lies about half hour's drive from me in rural Norfolk. Originally RFC Tibenham in WWI, and RAF Tibenham in WWII and a USAAF B-24 base, it's now the home of Norfolk Gliding Club. You drive along winding country lanes and turn al[...]
Since everyone is posting their Monogram F-8's, I decided to throw mine into the mix. These have been posted before, so I apologize in advance for the re-runs.
First up is a Monogram F-8E converted to the later J model. I used Superscale decal[...]
