Hello dear iModelers, Here I am back after long months of absence, with a P-51C "Red Tails" of the Tusgekee Airmen, and more precisely Apache II piloted by Lieutenant Henry "Herky" Perry. This is the Tamiya model, [...]

North American F-86D in 1/48 by Revell

Hi Folks! I just joint this community and thought I'd share one of my recent builds, the North American F-86D in 1/48 by Revell. It is the bir of Capt. A. G. Limpantsis 445th Fighter Interceptor Squadron Geiger AFB; Wa USA December [...]

Box Scale XB-70

I’ve done a few “nostalgia builds” this year and interestingly (to me anyway) most of them were kits that I wish I had made as a kid but I didn’t. This Lindberg box scale XB-70 sort of falls in that category. I wanted a companion [...]

B-25 B Airfix 1:72 Dolittle Ride

Review: Roden 1/48 T-28B

Revell F-86F

All raised details have been rescribed, a lot of scratch inside the cockpit because it was completly wrong for the F model of the aircraft, hypodermic needle pitot tube, movable flaps, fuselage drains drilled and opened, scratch built [...]
