F4 Phantom

Hi everyone, after visiting the aircraft museum, I decided for my next build I was going to make a plane. My mom got me the Academy 1/72 Phantom for winning 5th in my speech and debate competition. The phantom was supposed to be gray but I decid[...]

Accurate Miniatures 1/48 P-51B

My latest is the Academy reboxing of AM's P-51B, and represents" Missouri Mauler" flown my Captain Willard Milllikan of the 336th Fighter Squadron, 4th Fighter Group. He was involved in a mid-air collision with a wing mate while on a strafing ru[...]

Academy 1/72 F-8E

A friend sent me this kit and I will be mailing him the result in a few days. I decided to try a “quick” build for a change but still add as much detail as was reasonable. My usual builds take 2-3 months but I completed this one in two weeks. Th[...]

f-4j ”jolly rogers” academy 1/48

Beatiful kit i think vallue for money. Exceptional fitting with very little amount of putty. Attention needs on the wheel bay because you have to put them before you close the wings an you have to be careful to be straight. The colours i used ar[...]
