19 - 1/72 Italeri RAH-66 Comanche

What a fun build this was, the Italeri 1/72 RAH-66 Comanche Only 2 prototypes were ever made and the one was black and the other Helo Drab. I decided to do something a little different and created a What if US marines version. This [...]

...from 1989, Monogram McDonnell-Douglas AV-8B Harrier II

The F-102 is my most recent finished model and when it went to the airport, it was accompanied by another photo-virgin, this AV-8B Harrier II. Done in Marine markings, she was built during the spring of 1989. It was the fourth model I [...]

1/72 Academy F-8E Crusader

Another of my 2020 builds, this is the Academy F-8E built again straight from the box with the included decals, which are OK but not great. White is Revell SM301 and gull grey is Model Master.

HobbyBoss F4U-4 Corsair, 1/48. A Small Build Review of Sorts.

The Hobbyboss kit is proof that newer isn't necessarily better, but as an old Hasegawa F4U-4 was the first model I built upon returning to the hobby I felt that 3 years later it was time to have a stab at another F4U-4. In fact, I decided [...]

Well while we try and stay coronavirus free I am doing a lot of model building. Here is my finished Tamiya 1/48 scale F4-U Corsair. I have to say this was the worst fitting Tamiya kit that I have built. Weak wing assemblies, weak landing [...]

1/48 Kitty Hawk UH-1Y Venom

A beutiful kit by Kitty Hawk, I recomend it to everyone who is looking for detailed and quality helicopter kit. For $40 it includes detailed cockpit panels, colored paint/decal instructions and PE parts for seatbelts and fuselage details. [...]

1/35th USMC M1A1 Norway 2016

Another Abrams, this time I built Tamiya's 1/35th M1A2 Operation Iraqi Freedom kit into a USMC M1A1 in Norway for Exercise Reindeer II in 2016. Tamiya includes the Marine M1A1 as an option in this boxing. I added a bustle rack extension [...]
