1/72 Italeri Swiss Airforce Hawk MK 66

My original plan was to build this kit to depict a Red Arrows aircraft. Somehow I lost the plot and ended up using the kit decals depicting a Swiss Airforce aircraft. I liked the red and white paint scheme set off with the Swiss cross markings. [...]

Academy 1/72 Hawker Hurricane Mk. IIc

I built this kit last year after I finished building the MPC's Hurricane Mk. I. Once I started working on this kit, I was not able to stop. It's a nice and simple kit of the Hurricane Mk. IIc. All of the parts goes together rather well with very[...]

Light this candle – Models 1/72 Mercury Redstone – Freedom 7

I picked this up and started building as a distraction and what I thought would be a simple build. The kit is superb. The escape tower needs a little forethought and patience but the photoetch was a nightmare to get off the sprue and bend. Felt[...]

MPC (ex-Airfix) 1/72 Hurricane

Since my return back into this hobby last year, I basically just want to build the old kits that I had a chance to build back in the 60's to 70's. I really do not mind if it does not look perfect but I do like to see if the older kits can be imp[...]

Revell’s 1/72 B-24D Liberator

This is the very old 1/72 Revell B-24D that was first released back in 1964. This boxing was from the 1979 release (kit # 4403). I built this back in the end of 1986 and remember enjoying the build very much. I did a lot of work to bring it up s[...]

1/72 Academy P-51 “North Africa”

I just finished the 1/72 Academy P-51 "North Africa" boxing. I think the kit had been languishing in the stash for about a decade so it was time to get it built and I kind of like the look of the Allison powered Mustangs. The kit came with a 1[...]
