Operation Granby…1/48 Sepecat Jaguar GR.1A, No. 54 Sqn RAF

21/2021 So, my dad has finally finished his mojo killer. The Kitty Hawk kit looks good in the box but is no beginners kit. Many parts don´t fit good, pins don´t fit in their holes...so if you build it, dryfit everything. Well, it [...]

Lockheed F-117A Nighthawk – Italeri 1/48

Next up is this Italeri re-pop of Testor's old F-117A. This kit's boxing provided decals for a Ghost Grey version of the Nighthawk that has been often seen about in the jet's official post-retirement age. I initially thought that it would [...]

1991 Desert Storm Air War. 30 Years ago today. Monogram 1/48 F-117 “High Tech” kit Toxic Avenger

Hard to believe this event happened 30 years ago... but it did. Time sure flies, and it flies by even quicker the older you get. 30 years ago today I was in the US Army recruiter’s office filling out paperwork trying to get back [...]

Academy 1/72 OV-10D Bronco – Desert Storm

This is my entry for the Desert Storm group build. I added details to the cockpit - some bulkhead at the rear deck, boxes, cables, ejection handles, etc, knowing it would be pretty visible under that expansive canopy. Nothing extra to the [...]

T-72M Saladin Armored Division, Kuwait, 1991 – Tamiya 1/35

Here is my Iraqi Army T-72M completed as part of the Gulf War/Desert Storm Group Build. I corrected the 1/35 Tamiya kit with a more accurately-shaped SBS resin turret, including supplied photo-etched details for the searchlights and [...]

Italeri 1/72 OA-10A NAIL FAC

During my USAF career, I had the honor and pleasure to fly the A-10 Wart Hog for twelve years. It was a joy to fly…and to say that shooting the GUN was a thrill is an understatement. I built this kit for an old fighter pilot friend of [...]

Operation Desert Storm M2A1 Bradley Fighting Vehicle (D-26/“Delta Two-Six”), 2nd Platoon (call-sign “Charlie Eight-Zero”), Delta Company (“Death Merchants”), 1/41 Infantry (“Straight and Stalwart”), Task Force 3/66 Armor [...]

(Please note that all comment icons in the photos can be toggled on/off to remove description narratives if you want to better-view or copy/paste the photos). This is about as accurate as I could get by "kit-bashing" from both [...]

Challenger I Mk.3

Just one more armor posting for this week. I am doing my best to catch up with some of you guys as a new member. Thank you all again for your help and encouragement so far. It’s a big inspiration to keep building. This is my Tamiya [...]

Desert Storm...Hasegawa 1/48 McDonnell Douglas AV-8B Harrier II, VMA-231 USMC

Built in 2018. Another of my dad´s excursions to the modern world. Hasegawa kit, not one of their best, some fit issues, steps and gaps. Bought the kit second hand from a fellow modeller, sadly the decals weren´t really usable anymore so [...]

Desert Storm F 15C , Hasegawa 1/48th

This is one of my longest builds (years) from start to end. I got the model from my now departed friend Mike Franklin in the mid-1990s and I finished it in 2016. The kit is the classic 1/48th Hasegawa F-15C but before the electronic [...]
