McDonnell F2H Banshee - a single-seat carrier-based jet fighter aircraft used from 1948 to 1961.
I attended the Blue Angel Modelfest in Milton, Florida yesterday. The show was sponsored by the Pensacola Modeleers. This was a fun way to spend a day with fellow enthusiasts from the Florida panhandle and south Alabama. It was a really [...]
When I discovered Norris Graser and his Thundercals company had produced some decals for the Burma Banshees P-47's I couldn't resist getting a set. The sheet depicts P-47's flown by the 89th and 90th FS along with 80th FG. Of course I [...]
Rogue kit just finished in the Korean War GB here at iModeler...half kit,half maquette,but in the shelf anyway...!

It must be Banshee Friday! Hot on the heels of Michael’s, here’s mine. I just finished it about an hour ago. This is the disappointing Kittyhawk kit saved by the Rieth Banshee resin correction set. I ran a build log in the aircraft [...]
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), [...]
