Well, I am certain that everyone who has, at one time or another, thought to themselves, "Tom, you're so negative," will be happy to know that I am indeed.

Shelter in place. Wear a mask. Practice social distancing. So[...]
RAF Chinook used during the Falkland War built from the Italeri CH-47(HC.1) kit no 064. Built straight from the box, but modified some details according to the photos I found on the net of this Chinook. Still there might be some mistakes especia[...]

Here’s my Revell Stearman PT-17. This was the first time I tried rigging with micro tubing and ring anchors. It was a tedious process but, it sure looks good when done. Better than cleaning up and painting tank bogie wheels! 😆 I think I will gra[...]
Although serving in small numbers towards the end of World War II, Lockheed’s pugnacious fighter made a name for itself as a fighter and strike bomber during the Korean War. To commemorate the start of the Korean War 70 years ago and to pay homa[...]
