A quick easy build after my Special Hobby Fiat Br20. Amt 1/48 P-40N-20 Cleopatra 111 flown by Wing Commander G Atherton 80 Squadron RAAF Noemfoor July 1944.
Very simple build. I almost didn't post cause it's nothing special but I enjoyed it,[...]
Another entry from what Louis Gardner has termed the "Bebout Curtiss Factory." This is my attempt at trying to build two kits at the same time, which is a bit of a challenge, but nothing as crazy as when Louis does 6 Spitfires at a time. This mo[...]
Just of my table is this P-40N Lulu Belle, driven by 2nd Lt Philip Adair. 2Lt Adair would make a name for himself by single handily attacking a flight of 24 Sally bombers escorted by 34 Oscar fighters. He bagged an Oscar, damaged 2 others along[...]

Mentioned in my Mosquito build the other day that a Kittyhawk build was following-on, and here t'is !
The 1:48 AMT /Ertl kit came out around twenty years ago and was 'top of the tree' for a couple of years before Hasegawa came along and peed al[...]
I would like to dedicate this post to my good friend "John Jester" who passed away from Cancer last year. John was an avid classic car collector and enthusiast. When he recognized my love for, and ability to make models he asked me if I could ma[...]
