Some odd old parts wanted...

Not sure if this is the place to post this, but I didn't see the marketplace in the groups section. I'm looking for some old parts; need canopies for a 1/42 Strombecker / Aurora TT-1 Pinto, and for the 1/48 Hawk / Testors F2H Banshee. [...]

Review: 1/48th A/B-26 Invader, ICM/Monogram/Revell Review

With the new ICM new mold B-26B now in our hot little hands. Though overshadowed by the P-38 released about the same time. Still it was an anticipated and long awaited release that a lot of WWII model builders have waited for. I built [...]

Eduard (Accurate Miniatures) 1/48 Douglas A-24 Banshee, Mexican Airforce

After the shiny Mexican T-Bolt, my dad also finished another shiny Mexican not long ago. He had to fight with some fit issues but in the end it turned out nice. He used the limited Eduard edition of the Accurate Miniatures kit with Aztec [...]

F2H-2P Banshee walk around photos.

Good news! The Banshee is back on the main floor at Pensacola. Here’s some photos I just took. We’re waiting for the Blue Angels practice now.

1/48 F9F-5 Panther

When I finished my Banshee last week and put it in the display case, I realized that I had never shared it’s stablemate the Panther with anyone online. This is the Monogram kit that I think came out in 1990 or 1991. In my opinion, [...]

F2H-2 Banshee on USS Essex Korean War Diorama

This photo was the inspiration for creating the diorama using the 1/48th scale Kitty Hawk F2H-2/2P Banshee with my Rieth Creations Resin Correction Set. I found it a very interesting juxtaposition ("primitive" to 1950s modern), [...]

Kittyhawk 1/48 McDonnell F2H-2 Banshee (corrected)

The first jet aircraft to be used successfully operationally from a U.S. Navy aircraft carrier was the McDonnell FH-1 Phantom. The aircraft was not really combat ready and was transferred to the naval reserves by 1949, disappearing from [...]

Kitty Hawk F2H-2 Banshee

This is the Kitty Hawk F2H-2 done almost OOB, using kit decals. I added Furball canopy decals, along with a scratched metal pitot. Reading the reviews of this KH kit is not very much fun, because they highlight a lot of problems that this [...]
