I just finished this little beauty for my youngest grandson, Colton, who will be two next month. It is the Hasegawa kit but I took some "liberty" by putting his name on it. Vallejo metallics over Tamiya gloss black primer. Kit decals and the cu[...]
Here are a few miscellaneous aircraft photos from my collection that I’ve been adding to for over 30 years.
This time while cleaning the dust off the models I decided to finally take some pictures of my work. F-86D Sabre was finished in December 2017, so it’s not exactly the latest product. It’s a Revell model, with Part and Eduard photo etched [...]
Seven (7) has always been my "lucky" number and these 7 images show off my Mk-5 Sabre Jet. I have no idea what the "Mk-5" means and I don't think I did any research. I don't have a photo of the box art, nor do I recall why I chose to build a Ca[...]

One reason is: I like what we call here in America "Flashie Things" and the paint application on this jet just made m[...]
Due to a very busy schedule it’s been a while since I completed anything. So I thought I’d post one from a little bit ago.
This is Revell of Germany’s kit, and in my opinion certainly one of the best fitting kits I’ve worked on. The finish is [...]
