For those expecting another seaplane, surprise ! This is the Revell '53 Corvetter Roadster, (the instructions do not clearly give the scale) which I've wanted to do since I saw the Panamericana version was an option. This was the first Corv[...]

Had it not been part of General Motors, Cadillac might have perished in the Depression, a time when few could afford -- or wanted to be seen in -- big, expensive automobiles no matter how superb.
Unlike independent Packard, which was [...]
I always wanted a model of this airplane, especially after seeing John Alcorn's incredible 1/24 scratchbuilt Ninak in person. A big brutal British 2-seater. The model also commemorates the beginnings of Marine Corps aviation. The Northern Bom[...]
