Lost Treasure – John Deere 4430, AMT/ERTL 1:25

I was doing some Spring cleaning and found this kit that I forgot I had. When I opened the box it brought back a flood of modeling memories from my youth. I began building models with a cousin who was a few years older than me and had Muscular[...]

1/72 Ertl Grumman F-14A Tomcat of VF-32 , Year of the Cat

One from the cheap seats. Ertl/AMT F-14A .After starting this I almost chucked it ! I think I'd rather have done the old Airfix or even Monogram kits. There is panel line detail but the fit is very poor, I think the Sword Cougar was an easier b[...]

1/25 AMT ERTL Snapfast Plus-Ford GT90

This is how you take a 15 minute snap-tite project, and turn it into week long ordeal. The Ford GT 90 (concept) was a flop ! Considering it's unusal look, it did hve a pop-up "wing" in the rear, which only made it look more so. AMT produced [...]

F7F-3 JUNGLECAT

Finished this one last year. It took me a year to build to the day I called it finished. Posted on another site, but one of my all time favorites. And fun to build. It is a 1/48 scale AMT/ERTL F7F-3 Tigercat mostly out of the box,and parts from[...]
