Tamiya F4U-1D Corsair, 1/48. A Folded Bird.

Afternoon folks, here's another older build and another Corsair, this time it was my first attempt at trying to handle the ANA 623 Sea Blue. This Corsair was built alongside my previous post, the Birdcage F4U-1, and was started early April [...]

Kawanishi N1K1-J Shiden by Otaki

The Kawanishi N1K1/2 was numerically, the second most important fighter of the Imperial Japanese Navy, behind only the Mitsubishi A6M. 1435 were produced, representing just under 10% of all IJN fighters. For Japan as a whole, only the A6M, Ki-4[...]

Tamiya F4U-1 Birdcage Corsair, 1/48.

The first of many Tamiya Corsairs I did was this one, built alongside an F4U-1D. I started this back in April last year and completed in just 3 weeks, which is a record for me but that is largely due to having plenty of time off due to lockdow[...]

Airfix Skyhawk

My penultimate build for 2020 is the new tool Airfix A-4 Skyhawk. It’s not my best work but, it’s a decent 3 footer. The panel lines on top of the fuselage were very soft so I rescribed them. I tried shading panel lines with water colors which w[...]

1/72 Airfix Sea Harrier FA2

This is the Airfix Sea Harrier FA2, kit no. A04052 in 1/72 scale. Built OOB with the kit decals. It one of the few kits of the Harrier in 1/72 scale that has the dropped in auxiliary intakes included with the kit parts.

Boeing F4B-1 Conversion in 1/72 Scale

This is a conversion of the Monogram F4B-4 kit which back-dates it to the earlier F4B-1 using the RareBits vacuform fuselage and a Radial Engines & Wheels resin Pratt & Whitney R-1340 Wasp radial engine. Not overly difficult and the res[...]

Monogram Boeing F4B-4

A pair of the venerable Monogram Boeing F4B-4 kits, first released in 1968. This is one of the easiest biplane kits to build, the landing gear legs and fuselage struts are molded as part of the fuselage halves with results in a strong assembly [...]
