Monogram 1/48 AV-8B

Hello gentlemen, This is my latest work. It take more than 25 years for complete. I had started it in my age 25 and finished it at 50. So I didn’t touch up the cockpit that I made 25 years ago. Thank you for watching my work!

1/48 Hasegawa AV-8B II Plus – VMA-214

This is the Hasegawa 1/48 AV-8B II Plus. I used Eduard photo etch to detail it as well as some 3-D printed parts. The scheme is the infamous VMA-214 Blacksheep with decals from Caracal. This kit had some challenging fit issues with the dorsal an[...]

Hasegawa’s 1/48 AV-8B Harrier Jet

I'm not going to lie, I've attempted this kit several times in the past few years, and have failed miserably. I have two kits with the failed attempts under my bed. The kit has some serious fit issues. It took patience, a lot of dry fitting, [...]

1/48 TAV-8S Matador (Harrier)

This is the new Kinetic kit built up as a Spanish Navy example. It’s a really nice model of an interesting subject. First off, the fit of the kit is superb with two exceptions. I used no putty or superglue as filler anywhere, only a tad of Mr.[...]

1/32 Trumpeter AV-8B II Plus

I finished this one in September of this year and it wasn't without its challenges. Lots of ill-fitting parts and inaccuracies- some that were fixable, some not. I used an Aires cockpit and wheel wells. The cockpit did not fit very well and requ[...]

Fujimi AV-8A 1/72

This was a difficult kit to put together well, especially to get the wheels and air brake retracted. The way Fujimi designed this kit it was very fragile and weird breakout of parts. Unfortunately, I've got 2 more old Fujimi AV-8's in my stash! [...]
