Barber 51- Kitty Hawk’s AH-6J, Operation Gothic Serpent, Mogadishu, 1993

Hello iModeler! Here is my 1/35th scale Kitty Hawk AH-6J finished as Barber 51 during the battle of Mogadishu, Somalia, 3 OCT 1993. I used detail sets from Werner's Wings, to include the exhaust shroud, FLIR and the AH-6J / MH-6J Update/Correc[...]

F2H-2 Banshee on USS Essex Korean War Diorama

This photo was the inspiration for creating the diorama using the 1/48th scale Kitty Hawk F2H-2/2P Banshee with my Rieth Creations Resin Correction Set. I found it a very interesting juxtaposition ("primitive" to 1950s modern), how the men we[...]

On This Day…May 25th.

“Let me at ’em”

Hi All, This vignette, “Let me at-em”, I completed about two years ago, portrays an excited trainee and an old-hand instructor just back from a training flight. The build includes the 1/32, Kitty Hawk, T-6 Texan kit, using the SNJ scheme suppl[...]

Kittyhawk 1/48 McDonnell F2H-2 Banshee (corrected)

The first jet aircraft to be used successfully operationally from a U.S. Navy aircraft carrier was the McDonnell FH-1 Phantom. The aircraft was not really combat ready and was transferred to the naval reserves by 1949, disappearing from service [...]

Building Mig-25PD 1/48 Kitty Hawk

This is some moments of my second build this year. The kit from Kittyhawk has some mistakes and I used PE parts from Eduard, metal pitot tube from Model Master and resin parts (nose and engine) from Barracuda, but the resin engines were too long[...]

Kitty Hawk 1/48 XF5U-1 “Flying Flapjack”

I really like modeling propeller driven X-planes. When Kitty Hawk came out with this 48th scale XF5U-1 “Flying Flapjack” in early 2016, I jumped on it. I built this straight out of the box as it has everything you need including PE seat harnes[...]

Kitty Hawk F2H-2 Banshee

This is the Kitty Hawk F2H-2 done almost OOB, using kit decals. I added Furball canopy decals, along with a scratched metal pitot. Reading the reviews of this KH kit is not very much fun, because they highlight a lot of problems that this kit ha[...]

1/48 Kitty Hawk F-35B

I was getting ready for a contest here in Portland so I didn't have a chance to get around to working on my Kitty Hawk F-35B. Here's a shot of some additional progress I made on the engine this weekend. The kit is a contradiction of really preci[...]

Kitty Hawk F-101C Voodoo

I've had this Kitty Hawk kit since it came out a couple years ago, but it kept getting put on the back burner due to other projects cutting in line. Well, I finally decided to finish the Voodoo, especially since Kitty Hawk has decided to release[...]
