Here are two Pacific Coast Models 1/32 Macchis.
First is a mid-production C.200 Saetta with "smoke ring" camouflage, flown by Teniente Giuseppe Re of the 85th Squadriglia, 18th Gruppo of 3rd Stormo, based at Abu Haggag in Libya at the time of t[...]
1/32nd Williams Brothers kit of the Gee Bee. Built many years ago. Painted by "rattle can".
Scallops were laid out with homemade stencils. Pinstripes were done using a french curve & draftsman's pen.
Typical WB kit. Bit of a challenge but ca[...]
Here is my recently finished model. This is 1/48 Hasegawa Hawker Typhoon Mk.Ib finished with the markings of RAF No.198 Squadron.
Cockpit modified with some parts of CMK set and a seat from Ultracast .
Painting was done with Gunze Sangyo & T[...]
Built basically OOB from the Williams Bothers kit in 1/72. I wanted a different aircraft than the supplied decals so registration markings were pieced together by cutting up the kit decals and the outline of the United States hand painted in th[...]
Well I finally finished my first build of 2013...It took a while but got'er done. Pretty much built straight from the box except I used SuperScale decals. This one will be a great addition to my Jolly Rogers collection...of course its the only o[...]
My newest completed bird : The Heinkel HE 111 H-22 converted into a gunship.

This is a 1/32nd scale Rolls Royce Sedanca by Pyro molded in 1966. It is from the same time frame as the 1940 Ford posted by Jeff Stewart. It was in a series of 12 cars called "Table Top Classics". Cost ranged from $.79 to $1.00. Came with rubb[...]
Fabric wing model 1/32 scale. To me the early Hurricanes are the best looking-that pointy nose just does it. The Pacific Coast kit is pretty good, the only big issue being poor wing fit. It has a real good interior, nice surface detail and shape[...]
