My First “SnJ Spray Metal Aluminum Model.”

This 1/72 scale F7U-3 Cutlass model was made by Fujimi. It's been 31 years since I built this model and it was my first attempt to use the new "SnJ Spray Metal Aluminum" paint. While attending the IPMS/USA Sacramento, California annual model [...]

Hasegawa 1/72 Mosquito Mk IV

Hello! A friend of of mine had this kit for years, never tried to build it, but then he knew I was a modeler and, well, you know the rest. Not my favorite scale and, if I knew about this canopy assembly, with two halves to be glued and very har[...]

1/72 Hasegawa P-38 Lightning “Yippee”

Lockheed painted their 5000th P-38 Lightning "Vermillion" red in 1944 and used it as a demonstrator for a short period. Perhaps this one of the first "Commemorative" paint schemes that are so prevalent these days with military aircraft? I enjoy[...]

A British Beaver

Airfix produced some of their best kits in the early-to-mid 70s, which is the period in which they tooled their 1/72 DHC Beaver. Moulded in white plastic it went together very well, although I sanded off the raised rivets and panel lines, the l[...]

Happy New Year, and a review of builds from 2019

First of all, Happy New Year to all of you. I's been a while since my last posting here. Time has been limited maily due to a lot of work. The time left was spent with the family and actual building some models. Next to work I'm also involved [...]

We all have hear about John F. Kennedy's life via the net, including newspaper print. While walking around in the hobby shop one evening back in 2012, I came across this 1/72 scale PT-109 model made by Revell. I ask "AL" at the check-out count[...]
