Sister Squadrons

This project began shortly after i took GYPSY 203, a VF-32 Tomcat built for John Lawler, to the IPMS Nationals in Phoenix. Having enjoyed building the Tamiya Tomcat, i wanted to build one for myself. I was inspired by an issue of SCALE MODELER[...]

President Eisenhower’s “Columbine III” Heller 1/72 Super Connie

I personally don't think there was a more beautiful airliner ever made than the Constellation, and I like the Super Constellation with its long lean look to be the best of the bunch. Doing it in simple natural metal, as President Eisenhower's A[...]
