The Little Yellow Cub

Memories of the J-3 Cub. There was a time during my childhood the name “Piper Cub” was pretty much synonymous with the word “airplane.” In those days, a young boy might see a C-124 passing overhead whereupon he would exclaim, “Look, a Piper Cub[...]

1/48 Minicraft Grumman XF5F-1 Skyrocket (continued)

This is a continuation of an article I posted a few weeks ago at the start of this project. If you are interested in the previous part, you can find it at I probably should have done this in the WIP Group, but here is the completion of the p[...]

Minicraft XF5F-1 Skyrocket

I haven't posted anything for a while because I haven't built any models for a while because I was involved in building some buildings and scenery on my N Scale layout. Sorry, poor excuse. After I got to a stopping place, I really had the urg[...]

1/48 Minicraft P-38L Putt Putt Maru

1/48 Minicraft F4U-4B VMF-323 Korea
