Motivated by pictures I saw of the Justin Rogers' Lindberg Bismarck, I thought I share my model of the Tirpitz. The model's superstructure actually represents the Tirpitz much better than it does the Bismarck. I added two small structures to r[...]

Pyro:1/144 Scale completed.
Vasco da gama's Flagship on his 3rd Voyage to India.
My depiction of the "Santa Catarina do Monte Sinai" in full Royal Regalia while saluting the marriage party of Beatrice, Portu[...]
There's an interesting thread over at The Other Place in answer to the question, what was the first model you built?
My dad built my first models for me: a Strombecker solid wood B-29 and B-24, both painted silver. The first plasti[...]
This is my fourth and final(!) Lindberg Jenny project. It was love at first sight when I discovered the internet photos of Curtiss Jenny 4983 at the Air and Space Museum - the paint scheme, the unique markings, and the weathering all appealed t[...]
My Covid 19 project (everyone has one) was to convert an old Lindberg Coastal Patrol Boat (USCG) into something a little different. I had already done the original version (50's), and a PG Patrol Motor Gunboat (70's) , and had a spare kit t[...]
This is Round 2's reissue of the old Lindberg Q ship kit. I made it into a tramp steamer resembling the ship seen in the 1933 King Kong movie. It's about 1/400 ish scale. All I need is a King Kong figure.
In researching the origins of US Navy/Marine dive bombing, I ran across this little gem of a story:
In early 1919, a United States Marine Corps (USMC) JN-4 was credited with executing a "dive bombing" attack during the United States occupation [...]
Found this horrible Lindberg kit at a discount store.
I have long been fascinated by the GeeBee, and this kit was like candy to me. Could NOT resist.
I imagined it would be amusing to build this kit in a dystopian sort of Mad Max mashup [...]
Lindberg made an excellent starter kit for the "Advanced" modeler like me, so I went full-bore on the project by scratch-building just about everything.
All 3 landing gears were made out of aluminum and styrene. I cut in the wheel wells and bui[...]
In doing research on the history of dive-bombing, I discovered that the venerable old Curtiss JN-4 actually did service in combat zones, specifically with the US Marines in Haiti around 1920. I was taken by the camoflage scheme and determined t[...]
