Glencoe 1/35 Piasecki VZ-8P “Airgeep”

Hi everyone! This is my Glencoe 1/35 Piasecki VZ-8P "Airgeep" that I built about 15 years ago. The Piasecki VZ-8 Airgeep (company designation PA-59) was a prototype vertical takeoff and landing (VTOL) aircraft developed by [...]

Re-scaling a life boat. From 1/48 to G scale

I needed a better looking lifeboat for my Bristol Bay trawler (see my earlier posts) and the hull shape had to be just right for my purpose. That's when I happened upon a Glencoe U.S. Coast Guard rescue boat at a really nice price. I used [...]

1/48 Glencoe Spad XIIIC.1

U.S. Coast Guard 36' Motor Lifeboat

It's Coast Guard Day, August 4, 2013! I almost forget to honor the founding of my Service's birthday, August 4, 1790. As one might imagine I do build a lot of Coast Guard subjects (most are kitbashed or scratchbuilt) there are very few CG [...]
