My Hellcats, all in 1/48.

Otaki 1/48 Focke-Wulf FW-190

An old kit from the 1970s, but went together very well. No putty or filler needed anywhere. Painted with Gunze-Sangyo acrylics, and markings are from an old Cutting Edge sheet. The only modifications done were drilling out the gun barrels.

Otaki’s Grumman F6F-3 Hellcat in 1/48 scale

This kit has been in my stash since before I had a stash! At the time Otaki kits were state of the art but this one served to provide a better cowl ring for a Hasegawa build & so just stayed put for years. As I was about to start on an Eduar[...]

Arii/Otaki 1/48 F6F-3 Hellcat

This is the first model I've built in seven years! I have been so busy pursuing my career that model building was put on hold for a long time. Aries cockpit, True Details wheels, a bit of scratch building here and there, and a combination of old[...]

Otaki 1/48 Ki43 “Oscar”

Another "whiffie" racer.....these old kits are FUN. and inexpensive. I added a "modern" pilot, cleaned up the the fuselage, and clipped the wings. Looks very lightweight and fragile. The stripes are painted over decals, copied from a Hasegaw[...]
