1/72 Dragon Northrop P-61B Black Widow "Lady in the Dark"

This was another commission build using Dragon’s 1/72 P-61A/P-61B Black Widow Night Fighter. The client is a huge fan of the Northrop P-61 and really liked the 1/48 scale I built last year. He wanted a 1/72 version in a case for his [...]

The Spirit

This one I did quite a while ago but I thought I might share it with you. It is the 1/72 Northrop B-2 Spirit made by Testors. This kit is quite a thing. It took me almost a year to get it done with some others to step out of it and step [...]

The RNLAF Northrop NF-5A Freedom Fighter

Actually this is my first finished scale kit in a row, representing Royal Netherlands Air Force (RNLAF) fighters and trainers from 1946 until present. As I mentioned in my previous post, I am currently working on the 10th plane (the F-84F [...]

SR-71 & XB-35

A friend of mine was given two old kits , he asked me to build them for him. One was a 1/72 Revell SR-71 with a drone mounted on top... the other was an AMT/Ertl 1/72 XB-35 flying wing... The SR-71 was simple to build. If it had been [...]

Vac Wings Northrop BT-1 in 1/48

The Northrop BT-1’s claim to fame is being the proof-of-concept aircraft that led to the development of the famous Douglas SBD Dauntless. Entering US Navy service in 1938, the BT-1 introduced the hydraulically actuated perforated dive [...]

AMT / Ertl Northrop X/YB-35 in 1/72 Scale

This is the AMT / Ertl X/YB-35, a very large kit when built, but a unique subject. This kit takes some work, think of it as a limited run effort and you will be well prepared. I opened up the wing leading edge inlets and the wing slots [...]

F-5e afv 1/48

Beatiful kit with very small amount of putty. Painted it with AK colours with leveling thinner. Just amazing colours. The only extra is an Aires seat.

Malaysian RF-5E Tiger Eye – Airfix 1/72

When I saw a pic of the Malaysian scheme in a magazine, I had to build it. I ordered a couple different sets of after market decals (none for an F-5), but they didn't fit the size of the model. I was surprised when I opened the box that [...]

Naked T-38

In 1990, I was an instructor pilot and wing staff officer assigned to Randolph AFB in San Antonio, Texas. At the time, the wing was flying T-37's and T-38's. I was on my way back from a meeting and happened to pass the wing paint shop [...]
