Scratch built 1/32 f6f-3 hellcat

I acquired some cockpit and wheel well photo's, so I did my best to duplicate all of these items into this 1/32 scale model. I had to call upon my art talent to draw some logos that the pilot had someone paint on his airplane and/or apply decals[...]

Fonderie-Miniature 1/48 SE.2415 Grognard II

Hi everyone! This is my Fonderie Miniature 1/48 SE 2415 Grogard II, built in 2003. The Grognard was designed by SNCASE as a single-seat, low-level ground-attack aircraft. Although in development in the 1950s for the French Armée de l'Air, the [...]

1/48 Airfix Glster Javelin FAW.9/9R

This build was the Airfix 1/48 scale kit of the Gloster Javelin FAW .9/9R. I used Eduard’s Photo etch set and the kit decals. The Javelin is a large aircraft so even in 1/48 scale it takes up some room.The kit is nice in fit and details. All the[...]

Airfix 1/48 Spitfire Mk 22

Hello, fellas. Hope you are all safe and having a good time buiding models at home! This kit has been reviewed several times. It was great when it came out (1996, IIRC), but has since been surpassed by Airfix’s new releases. The cockpit is ver[...]

Built from 1928-1935, with tube steel fuselage, wood wings with fabric covering, ailerons of corrugated aluminum. The US Navy began heavily investigating the tactic of dive bombing in the 1920s and 1930s. Of aircraft in current service at the ti[...]

P-38H made from Tamiya’s new Lightning kit

This is probably the most popular kit released recently and I've finally got around to finishing my build. Went for aftermarket decals because the two markings offered from the box are pretty dull to my eyes. Also has the benefit of being a P-38[...]

Revell 1/48 P-47N Thunderbolt

This is my latest off the bench and one that gave me lots of problems. Most if not all of the issues were self inflicted. The kit supplied cockpit is OK but wanting more I found a True Detail set a.k.a. Victor, that I was really happy with and [...]

Testors 1/48 OV-10A Bronco Workbench update

UPDATE 22/3/2020 Hello my friends, I can see things are really tough for poor Italy, Spain and others gradually not looking too good as well. Here in Greece things start to escalate in a bad way, we will see how it goes. Hoping for the best, bel[...]

Hasegawa 1/48 Hs 129B-2

A very good kit, especially considering it's age. A lazy paint job on my part.... no effort at topside shading/weathering, etc. I'm not such a fan of the Eastern front or Schlachtgeschwaderen, but it's a twin and not something you see every da[...]

A Wolf In Cat’s Wings

INTRODUCTION “There isn't enough thrust in Christendom to fix this plane.” With that sentence, Vice Admiral Thomas Connolly sealed the fate of the F-111B and his Navy career. Out of the ashes of a plane totally unsuited for carrier operations a[...]
