The road trip model – Stinson SR-9 Reliant, AMT 1/48

I am in Florida, having competed in the Top Gun RC meet a few weeks ago. My son lives not far away from where the meet was held, so we came to visit. It was only supposed to be for a few days, but has turned into a few weeks. It turned out th[...]

AMT Douglas A-20G

My favorite twin-engined bomber of WWII, and probably the most iconic, as in overexposed, livery. Relatively straight forward and basic kit-another member of the 20/20 club, and another lockdown build.

AMT Bulldozer 1/25

This is the AMT kit that was originally titled "Caterpillar D8H" but has been re-released as the generic "construction bulldozer." It's a great kit, very detailed, and very much capable of even more scratch-building detail. I limited myself to[...]

John Deere 4430

I grew up on a farm with green tractors, and as kids my school mates and I used to have tug-of-wars over whether John Deere or IH were the better tractors. Sometime around my early teens I built the Ertl Massey-Ferguson 1155 tractor which was a[...]

1/72 Esci AMT CF-104 Starfighter 421 Red Indian Squadron Canadian Armed Forces

I am a big fan of the Lockheed F-104. My father flew the CF-104 with the Royal Canadian Air Force (RCAF) from 1961 to 1964. This model features a commemorative paint scheme for the Canadian Armed Forces (CAF) 421 Red Indian Squadron. In 1983 42[...]

1/72 Esci/AMT USAF F-104 Drone

The 1/72 Esci F-104 kits were re-boxed by AMT. The kits are pretty nice with extra fine recessed panel lines and the option to build the short tail A or C version or the more common long tail version used by most countries except the US and a fe[...]

AMT / Ertl Northrop X/YB-35 in 1/72 Scale

This is the AMT / Ertl X/YB-35, a very large kit when built, but a unique subject. This kit takes some work, think of it as a limited run effort and you will be well prepared. I opened up the wing leading edge inlets and the wing slots at the [...]

Last of the Four – the Silhouette is done!

This must be a record for me at least since I was young, 4 kits done in 3 months! All fun, all straight out of the box (well I did plug wires on the dragster) and I did my best to not stress out over perfection. The last one is AMTs Silhouette[...]

Spring is here, Mac is back, and the pad has gone away…

Well here is progress on my AMT Silhouette, this time pictures taken with my trusty digital camera and processed with "pictures" on my new MacBook Air. The iPad...well I should have liked it, but I hated it! Well hate is strong, I just didn't [...]

AMT 1/25 scale 1971 Dodge Charger R/T Kit

Long story behind this kit!! My best friend Marshall Smith who owned a Restored 1971 Dodge Charger SE. His Charger was authenticated by Gailen Govier as to be 1 of 7 built in 1971. Charger SE was a luxury style Charger with a leather interior[...]
