Thirty four years in the making of this kit.
I started it in 1985.
Put it away in 1986 when i started a new position at work.
Forgot about it until moving back from Florida in 1998.
I decided it was time to finish the kit.
Started working on it [...]

This bird is a Monogram issue from1968. It is a late model Stuka Ju-87G2. I had built another issue of the Stuka, the Ju-87D5, which was issued in the early 1980’s while I was in college, but never this one.
What I love about this aircraft is [...]
My second RAF Aircraft, and boy was this one strange. I started this aircraft almost 5 years ago, and I have just now finally got it done (Of course, I have moved twice since I started this poor thing).

I have always wanted a Blue Angels' bird in my hangar, and finally settled on the Skyhawk. I used CAM decals on it and some Eduard photo etch. I know she is not as shiny as it should be, but I didn't want the airframe too shiny so I settled on a[...]
The ancient Monogram Kingfisher is still a very nice kit. The boxart on Revell/Monogram's last re-issue is an artist's conception of the aircraft in the photo, I discovered well after I had started my kit. My interpretation of the same aircraft [...]
Another one of my favorite Chrysler products. This kit was kit bashed with Monogram's 1969 Dodge Super Bee. The Super Bird kit was way off in detail in certain areas. I used the engine bay, chassis, suspension, rear axle, engine, exhaust (muf[...]
Just before I retired from NYPD in 1995 I built this NYPD "Bubble" Chevrolet RMP (Radio Mobile Patrol) kit. I custom mixed the blue department colors using Testor's small bottle enamel paints. I airbrushed the colors and used Testor's enamel c[...]
Started to build this kit about 15 years ago. Never completed due to the horrible stock decals associated with this kit! I painted this Shelby black lacquer and masked off the black and painted the gold stripes with lacquer. Was wet sanded th[...]
