Jim Sullivan GB: 1/48 Otaki F6F-3 Hellcat

Jim Sullivan’s “F6F Hellcat in Action” Squadron book features a Don Greer profile of Hellcat F6F-3 “white 13” of VF-16 that flew from the USS Lexington CV-16 in December of 1943. I chose to model this particular aircraft for the [...]

Otaki 1/48 Nakajima Ki-84 Hayate "Frank"

Another old build that I decided to do a little work to. This was originally finished as a factory fresh build since the markings are from the second prototype of the Ki-84. This is an Otaki kit that was first released in 1973. Not too [...]

Otaki 1/48 P-40E

Here's my Otaki P-40E in 1/48 scale. I build this in 1988 and it was my second time building this kit. My first time was in 1979. For this build I took my time to correct many issues that existed, worked on the spinner's shape, carburetor [...]

Greg Boyington’s ‘photo’ F4U-1a Corsair.

Spitfire Mk VIII

Recently I completed an Arii Spitfire Mk VIII. The MkVIII is my favorite version of the Spitfire and as fate would have it, there was this one waiting in my stash of unbuilt kits. It was the first time I had made extensive use of paper [...]
