Wingnut Wings FE.2b Early

This was my fourth Wingnut Wings kit, and the most challenging due to the amount of rigging required. I used EZ Line in both sizes. This was good, and bad. EZ Line does stretch well, eliminating the dreaded after-build line sag, and it is diffic[...]

Fw-190D-13 “Yellow 10”

Done back in 2001, using the Wurger Mechanic conversion (fuselage, prop and spinner) with the Trimaster Fw-190D kit. Decals were from Eagle Editions.

How to: Airbrush What, How & Why – Part 2. Double action airbrush

Here's the second part of a hands-on introduction to airbrushing, this time featuring a double-action airbrush. Video by Marneus Augusta Calgar, found on Youtube. For part one of the series, look here:

1/32 Hasegawa FW-190

In keeping with the current "theme", I offer one of my earliest (albeit poor) attempts at a multi-colored Luftwaffe bird. This is years old and certainly not even close to being accurate I would suspect. At any rate, I continue to enjoy myself a[...]

Another 1/32 Hasegawa 190

Hauptmann Walter Nowotny's Fw-190A-5 of JG 54, around the time he scored his 250th victory. Decals from Eagle Cals, seat from Eagle Editions with molded-in seat belts. JG 54 is my favorite unit for doing off-beat field-applied schemes. Born [...]

As long as we’re now into Fw-190s…

This is the Hasegawa 1/32 kit with the Montex conversion to do the Fw-190A-3 flown by Hans "Assi" Hahn of JG2 in 1942. It's an easy drop-fit conversion with a full fuselage. Decals from Eagle Cals.

Monogram 1/48th P-61

I wanted something other than the usual "Black" Widow, so I chose a scheme I'd seen in photos here and there....OD over neutral gray. The canopy sections were both a PITA to mask and to apply open. Probably could've been done better. I attempted[...]

Hobbycraft CF-105 “Arrow”

This is the "New tool" Hobbycraft CF-105, in 1/48th scale. The kit comes in a rather large, sturdy box, which is really needed because this is a big model. I'm impressed with the size of the completed model every time I look at it; those designe[...]

“The Missle With a Man in it”

This is the Hasegawa (I believe) 1/32nd F-104(C?) done some time back. As I recall, it was a fairly trouble-free build and the NMF was my usual rattle-can technique. I took these out on the driveway this morning in hopes of creating a better bac[...]

Hasegawa 1/32nd Fw190A-6

Here is Oblt. Georg Schott's "Weise 11", Staffelkapitaen of 1./JG-1 while based at Deelen, Holland in the autumn of 1943. This one also has the Eagle Editions propeller & spinner, cowl gun cover, and wheels. I also used the RB Productions p[...]
