Another Airfix 1/72 gem of a kit. The fit is great, as are the decals. I did the Korean war selection kit decals. Which must have been a popular plane as Tamiya's and Italeri's 1/72 also offers the same bird in their 1/72 kits. As great as the[...]
Hello again, second article here, 1/72 aircraft. Please click my name for a short bio if you wanna know me a little better, and if you haven't already. I tried to go somewhat alphabetical. All 1/72 unless otherwise noted:
Today was a sunny day, so I decided to take few pictures of my ‘old’ models. The model is the Royal Class Mustang from Eduard on 1/48 scale. I build this model out from the box.
This plane was flown by Captain Donald R. Emerson ([...]
Seems like forever since I posted! Well here is progress on the cockpit, Barracuda Cast seat, and radios and battery. Eduard "Look" instrument panel. The seatbelts were a quandary. I had some Eduard PE ones from a failed Dragon P-51 build, b[...]

Thanks to Louis Gardner for starting this GB as it gave me a reason to build some of the Japanese A/C in my stash. The Ki-100-1 was quite a successful fighter and gave the allies all they could handle towards the end of the war. The Ki-100 was d[...]
The 6147th Tactical Control Group originated at Taejon, South Korea, within the "operations section" of the Joint Operations Center. Three pilots, and two Stinson L-5 Sentinels, were assigned as airborne forward air controllers. On 9 Ju[...]
Another one from the archives.
This is the 1/48 Tamiya P-51D Mustang with Lifelike Decals, Eduard fabric seatbelt and Barracuda oval tread wheels and tires. Built as 44-151103 flown by Col. Dick Rowland, CO 348 FG Luzon, Phillipines, early 1945[...]
A Sunday arvo session done and a model is complete. This is the 1/48th Airfix P-51D Mustang. I wanted a non-silver finished Mustang so I grabbed the OD/NG Rovin' Rhoda/4 Bolts scheme from my Eduard Mustang. There's lots of variation in [...]
