ICM 1/48 DB26 Invader (Drone Carrier)

A recently completed ICM 1/48 DB26 Invader built out of the box. I replaced the kits BQM-34A (Q-2C) Firebee with a KDA-1 (Q2A) as I'm given to understand that the aircraft never flew with a mixed 'load' (?) Finished with Tamiya XF's and [...]

1/48th ICM B-26C Invader As Navy XJD-1 Prototype

This 1/48th model came in the ICM box as a B-26C Invader and was modified to represent one of two XJD-1 prototypes (BuNo 57990 and 57991). This 'Navalized' Invader, after further enhancement, would go on to serve under the designation [...]

A Review of 2022

This year seems it was a blur. With uncertainty with the pandemic here not here, masks no masks, economy was in disarray, gas sky high especially here in California. The year was cruising along but in April I received a note from the new [...]

In-Depth Review: Modelsvit F-82G Twin Mustang, 1/48th scale

Happy New Year everyone. A more detailed review of the long awaited Modelsvit 1/48th N. American F-82 Twin Mustang. Personally one I have been looking forward to ever since it was announced about 2 years ago. Not since the Tamiya P-38 [...]

Biafra Invader

Here is an Italeri 1:72 A26B Invader, Biafra 1967. The standard A26B was modified to represent the unique nose, the a/c had been used in France as a radar calibration/survey a/c. I had to improvise for the colours and decals. Both the [...]

Box Scale Monogram B-26 Invader

Not a quick build as expected but it turned out nice. Nose weights added to keep her grounded. MM Non-Buffing Aluminum and Sealer (I like that stuff). Strictly out of the box and amazingly the old kit decals survived with a bit of help. [...]

My 2020 builds

Hello everyone, We entered the last week of 2020 and I do not have any models that I will complete in this period. So I thought that it is the time to post my models completed in 2020. This year was very bizarre (Covid and its effects). [...]

A-36 Apache dive bomber! Now is that a Mustang or not?
