Hi All, A quick update on the 6 Harriers that I am building for the USMC Blacksheep Squadron for the 80th Anniversary. I am now onto the engines, I completed one as a test so the other 5 would go smoothly and this approach seems to work [...]
Hello again! Here is my latest build for a former F-4 pilot and member of USMC VMFAT-101. This kit is the Tamiya 1/32 scale kit. From what I can tell this is an older kit, but still a fairly straight forward. Added a real aluminum exhaust [...]

?✈️ Nakajima Ki84 Type 4 fighter Hayate (Frank). 1/32 scale Hasegawa kit with Eduard zoom set cockpit. However I purchased the Montex super mask set I neither used that or the decals from the kit but made my own masking & painting. [...]
