1/48 Douglas A-20 by AMT

Lots of aftermarket items added to this build. The engines, cowlings, propellers, control surfaces, cockpit, control panel, guns, and wheels. Foxbot decals were also used to replace the kit ones. I fabricated the pitot head on the fin, the ret[...]

AMT 1/48 Grumman F7F-2N Tigercat “Big Bird”

The kit directions have a note that I started putting paint to plastic on July 16, 2020 and I finished the model July 5 of this year. During that time, I did manage to complete one other model that had been set aside, and also started two oth[...]

AMT-FROG “Famous Fighters Series I” – Box Theme Build

This is a build I completed a few months ago of AMT-FROG Famous Fighters Series I, No. 3955-130, 1:72 (1967 boxing). I started work on the first plane this past September while involved with two different FB group builds on a totally different[...]

D-Day flashback

Several years ago, there was a D-Day group build here on iModeler. My submission was an AMT 1/47 A-20G, representing an airplane assigned to the 646th Bomb Squadron, 410th Bomb Group, 9th Air Force. I felt it was appropriate to post this today[...]

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[...]
