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[...]

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

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[...]

12 RAF Coltishall Jaguars were sent to Muharraq International Airport, Bahrain in October of 1990. Here would be their base of operation throughout if and when the war would start. Several modifications were made to each of the Jags in[...]
