When I finally decided to build this fine example of the famed Japanese Zero, I was hoping against all odds I wouldn't somehow mess it up. Rather than paint the aircraft that IJN Green color that everybody was using (it seemed), I thought I'd tr[...]
Yes another Lindberg, a kit that took a bit of work, as it's got the boosters moulded to the external tank, but a bit of sawing, filling, refining and scratch-building and she came close enough for me.
I know the digital image is wrong the Shut[...]
I submit for your consideration my Trumpeter (mostly) 1/32 Republic F-105D Thunderchief.
"Alice's Joy" was Col. Jack Broughton's ride when he was the Vice Wingie at the 355 TFW at Tahkli, Thailand circa 1967. Having read all of Broughton's boo[...]

The Airfix Bird dog in the scheme of a NZ owned aircraft ZK-NAM.
I replaced the ill fitting cokpit roof clear parts, and removed the horrible ejector pin marks on the tail and wings, but left everything pretty much as in the box.
