On November 1, 1943, American forces landed on Cape Torokina at Bougainville. That night, the Navy fought the Battle of Empress Augusta Bay, which stopped a Japanese force of heavy cruisers from disrupting the invasion and forced them to retreat[...]
Hello again, and back with something you don't see built too often these days:
First time I've built an IL2 and first time I've finished an AM kit. Engineering is superb IMO, as long as you take the time to read how other folks built theirs AND[...]

I posted these Doolittle Raiders on the Movies Group Build, Thirty Seconds Over Tokyo but I'd like to share them with everyone here too. Hope that's acceptable to duplicate my efforts.
I completed these Accurate Miniatures B-25b's earl[...]
Hey there fellow iModelers,
Here's another "moldy-oldy" from my shelf. This little scene depicts my cousin, Doug and I, out doing one of our favorite activities, visiting the museums. This fictitious museum was built around the 1/48, Accurate [...]
This is an old model I built long time ago, originally with the 3 tone camo pattern of white, medium and dark blue. After a close look, I decided to give her a new life. I stripped the paint, riveted the whole model, restored it and painted [...]
Summer activities has consumed most of my modeling time but I was able to finally complete another Tuskegee Airman aircraft. The above represents a P-51C piloted by LTC Benjamin O. Davis of the 100th FS, 332nd FG in Ramitelli, Italy 1944/5. Davi[...]
