Hope you are all doing fine. Lockdown still in effect here but that actually slowed down my builds. Been working on this one since march, the venerable Accurate Miniatures SBD, boxed by Italeri.
First off, it is great that oth[...]
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[...]
A 1970s white box release of the venerable Monogram Dauntless. Before Accurate Miniatures and Hasegawa came in the the game, this was the only 1/48 scale SBD available. It was originally released in the early 60s and as was the trend with Mono[...]
I began this kit only a few weeks ago, and given that this was my second go at an AM Mustang, the build went fairly smoothly, but not without some hiccups.
Firstly, I built this kit out of the box, with only the addition of Eduard belts to [...]
Recently I’ve complete two world war 2 era Russian aircraft. A Zvezda PE-2 and a A.M. IL-2. The Zvezda kit is an awesome kit to build, perhaps one of the best kits on the market. The Accurate Miniatures kit wasn’t too bad either, but not as tro[...]

Monogram's venerable four star "plastikit" SBD Dauntless was originally released in 1960. It was until the Accurate Miniatures and Hasegawa SBDs the only game in town in 1/48. Over the years some very impressive models have been built using th[...]
This is the 43 year old Monogram “Razorback” that was based on their 1967 “Bubbletop” kit. I found this original 1977 issue of the kit at a recent show and bought it for $5. The deal of the century! I realized while building it that it is the[...]
This is an Accurate Miniatures P-51B that has been patiently waiting in my stash to be built for over 20 years. I have to confess that I’m not a huge Mustang fan, but have collected a few of the new Airfix and Eduard “D” models to add to the co[...]
This is the Academy boxing of the Accurate Miniatures kit. I bought it second-hand for my wife to give me for Christmas in 2018 and I couldn't wait to start it straight away. It only took me about three months elapsed time to finish, which is [...]
