I built this model a few years back; it's the Hobbycraft re-release of the CF-105 Arrow. I think this kit is OOP, and is a bit hard-to-find these days. As many of you are familiar with Hobbycraft kits, you know that they are pretty basic, and so[...]
This is my take on a Navy transport version of the Beech 18. A simple kit from Hobbycraft, the last of my Dad's old stash. spare stars and bars, the rest home made decals.
1/72 Tasman / Hobbycraft, started in 2005, finished for the Year of the Cat GB, with MM enamels and Future over Tasman and High Planes decals, the last pic' is of another similar build. -------------

This is the old Kitech (Hobbycraft) F7U-3M Cutlass in 1/48th scale. I'm sure a lot of you recognise this kit as being pretty crude, devoid of much detail, and just about everything else that modellers these days desire in a model. That's true e[...]

This was built from the 1433 boxing "Falklands Fighter"

This was the first kit I built after a 4 year hiatus in model building. Its the Academy reboxing of the Hobbycraft kit, which at the same time looks very similar to the Hasegawa version.
The only trouble I had with this kit was that the tailplan[...]
This gallery for my Bell Aircomet that was completed some time ago mid April. This is kit from Hobby Craft, that I upraded by adding some spare PE in the cockpit and resin wheels. Kit goes together straight forward, not to many parts[...]
Yet another kit that had languished on the shelf of doom- a hangar queen that was on pause for too long. I had always wanted to build a Mig17 in VPAF markings- and back in the day of collecting kits I saw this one as an opportunity. It was a sec[...]
I grew up near a large Naval Air Station, Quonset Point NAS in Kingstown, RI. Prior to its shut-down in late 1975 I would get to enjoy the many Naval aircraft, which where stationed their, fly over my house. Some of you may have read my articl[...]
