Eduard 1:48 Spitfire Mk. IXc

Much has been written about the Eduard Spitfire and the history of Spitfires by better men then I so i'll spare you all. I modeled Spitfire ML296, 312 (Czech) Squadron, RAF, August, 1944. I painted most of the markings, Roundels, codes, etc., us[...]

This is a March 83G that campaigned in the IMSA GTP series from '83 through '85. It was sponsored by Red Lobster. The kit is white metal made by a company called Bam. 1/43rd scale. All of 4 1/2" long

Supermarine Attacker from Trumpeter in 1/48 scale

Still keen on the Fleet Air Arm; I've just finished one of Trumpeter's latest. The Attacker didn't quite make its mark as noticeably as the USN Banshee & Panther although similar in performance. The tailwheel undercarriage wasn't a great fea[...]

Airfix 1/72 Hawker Typhoon 1B

Built OOB, finished in Testors and Tamiya acrylics. I had planned on mounting bombs instead of rockets, for something a little different. However, I really didn't like the way the bombs ended up looking. I also left off the boarding step, as it [...]

48th scale North American F-86D Sabre Dog

This model represents the first production single seat fighter to which air-to-air missiles replace the classic gun armament. The Monogram kit is built out of the box and I do not recall any fit issues. I used several shades of Alclad paint loo[...]

1/12 Honda RC166 GP racer by Tamiya

Here's the latest kit I've completed. I'm not normally a two wheel fan, but this Honda is an exception. About the bike: The RC166 was Honda's triumphant development of its 250 cc racers which started in 1954 when Soichiro Honda declared his a[...]

Late war JG 26 Bf-109K-4 (1/32 Hasegawa)
