Hobby Boss’s two 1/32 B-24s, much vaunted in recent months and previewed at Nuremberg Toy Fair in February, are now about to hit the hobby shelves. No price confirmed, and no in-box reviews that I can see yet, but I see that pre-orders are now b[...]
Here's another one of my older builds. I am definitely going to have to build a photo light box......... This plane is too big for my current setup, so the quality of photographs are not up to par................ She has some hangar rash and i[...]

Hello! Here's my newest completion, the Academy B-24M Liberator. Finished with metal foil on all surfaces.

As promised, a few shots of one of the others in the Collings fleet that makes it's annual 'migration' into a nearby nondescript field for maintenance. The remaining aircraft (the B-25 and P-51B), will be combined into one post at a later date/t[...]
