As most Heller kits, this one is delicate with fine molded parts. Being an OV-10 fan, I've always liked the twin boom configuration., and found this interesting. The aircraft is larger than one may expect, and is one of the few that was conver[...]
Although I was not at "The Home", I built this for a lady whose Father worked on the B-36. He is elderly and she wanted it to give to him before the inevitable happens.
It does not represent a B-36 from any squadron in particular. Actually it is[...]
Two things I rarely (if ever) do....1) 1/144th scale and 2) brush paint a model. On a whim, I recently ordered this little Academy kit when stocking up on some paints, adhesives, etc.
This was a one-day build - as is most probably evident - bu[...]
My last build before a 15 years vacation, my wife rescued it from an old model box in our old house. I was so proud of this build, that I decided to bring it back to life.
It is severely damaged, with some parts missing, but full with memories,[...]

Amsterdam-Schipol, June 1943.
a good kit in outline and fit. a few minor detail errors (wrong engine cooling vents, late model wheels), but overall a nice [...]
Loved your Phrog Craig and so I cropped a picture I have of the cave to show the Julian Date Calendar I got when I was in HSC 21. It is from HC 11s Quality Assurance shop, and is in the shape of a 46. THEY WERE GOING TO THROW IT AWAY!!!! I sai[...]
Just finished up this evening....or at least as finished as it's probably gonna get. There were dozens and dozens of various other stenciling and markings, but 90% of 'em were in light gray. Seein's how that's the paint scheme I chose, why bo[...]
When I reported aboard BHR in 1957 this aircraft was on the flight deck. It was the only one on board and appeared to have been left over from VA-212. I have no other information on this except that it was lifted off and where it went is unknown[...]
Hi all, I am finally reaching the end of my classic airframes Seahawk but as you can see the dark sea grey has shown through the ace of hearts insignia, I have considered carefully masking it of and painting in the white part but I am pretty sur[...]
Here's a few shots of the model completed today. It's done as Ken Walsh's first "No. 13," BuNo 02350, in which he may have scored a couple kills (records are unclear), but it definitely became an "ace's plane" when he scored #5 and they put the[...]
