Neil Armstrong’s F9F-2 Panther – Trumpeter 1/48

To know a little about the history of this plane and its famous pilot, see my previous article: Following my build of Neil Armstrong's Panther in 1:72, and in which I showed a letter he wrote to his father during the Korean War, I was ki[...]

Movie Star Mosquito

I built this Mosquito for the De Havilland Group Build. There are a lot of great choices of planes to build for this group, but I wanted to be a little creative in my choice. One of my favorite flying movies is 633 Squadron, which is based on[...]

General Dynamics EF-111A (Academy 1/48)

This kit has been in my stash since the 1990’s. Some significant work was required to reinforce and clean up the front/rear fuselage join. Without internal reinforcement, there’s too much flex and too little area for glue to adhere too conside[...]

Tamiya 1:48 Jug – “Little Chief”

This is the second model I've built since restarting my hobby after a nearly 40 year recess. The subject of this attempt was the excellent Tamiya 1:48 Razorback P-47 Thunderbolt. I really wanted to build the "Spirit of Atlantic City" version, bu[...]

Trumpeter, Mig-15, 1/48

Hi guys, here is my Trumpeter, Mig-15 in 1/48 scale. An excellent kit with very good fit and details.

The V-173 “Flying Pancake,” did it stack up?

Aerodynamics are a funny thing. In the 1930s, flight was only three decades old. People who had never seen a man fly let alone an aircraft at one time were still very much alive, in fact only middle aged. As new as the concept was, aviation was [...]

I like a good Mustang

Another one from the archives. This is the 1/48 Tamiya P-51D Mustang with Lifelike Decals, Eduard fabric seatbelt and Barracuda oval tread wheels and tires. Built as 44-151103 flown by Col. Dick Rowland, CO 348 FG Luzon, Phillipines, early 1945[...]
