So far a fun build..except....for all the darned lines and hoses!!! The attachment points are non existent and the instructions vague. I think I got them where they go.....of course one fell off last night and I have no clue where it came from[...]
This is the 1/72 Revell German Type VIIc kit finished as U-96, the inspiration for the movie. I built it pretty much out of the box with the exception of the swordfish decal which came from a German producer named Peddinghaus. They offer an ex[...]
This thing has got to be the oldest model that I have. As I recall my uncle gave me this to me, along with an Aurora F9F cougar and what was I think a Hawk weirdo's kit with a guy on an engine powered surf board. He helped ,along with my Dad t[...]
This is my first water base diorama model which is a 1/144th scale "Martin PBM-5 Mariner" made by Revell about 15 years ago. I should have posted this model first, then post the "Kingfisher."
The model was built o.o.b. with regular glueing, san[...]
The "box-art" shows Revell's 1/48 scale "OS2U Kingfisher" scout type seaplane setting in the ocean. Since I had built a diorama water-base before I though that I would do it again.

This depicts an early F-102A as delivered to one of the first operational squadrons to receive them, the 327th FIS. It had the original shorter tail fin, and unmodified intake ramps and speed brakes. I added a pitot tube to the nose added a gene[...]

Made a wooden base with an illustration of the denomination "Shoki the Demon Killer" Zong Kui from the Middle Ages.

Continuing on with the Atlantis/Revell Allison Turbo Prop, aka T56 engine. Here is the compressor section just about wrapped up. Still have the door assembly to do.
In addition to the "Korea the Forgotten War" group build that will last during the exact time frame as the war did, (only 70 years later), here's another one I was thinking about.
This Group Build would be called "Wings of the Emperor", or "The[...]
