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[...]
Here is my build of the 1953 Corvette (Revell 07067). I built this a couple years ago. I have a new photo setup, so I am revisiting and posting some of my older projects.
Quite different from later Corvettes, the ’53 used a modified version of[...]
The first for the new year, 2020, is this Revell of Germany, Ilyushin Il-2, Stormovik.
Actually this is a repop of the Accurate Minatures kit, and is STILL a very nice kit, albeit a wee bit fiddley overall.
The kit itself builds well, and I f[...]
Fifty to 70 years ago we use to call this kind of bird a "Double-Winger." Sometime later the name was change to "Bi-Wing" or something like that.

One photo show's the addition o[...]
I would like to show you my earlier made model. The kit are from Italeri, i built from the box. I did not use accesories. I used Gunze and AK colors the painting, and decals are from the kit.
I am so happy Atlantis has started re-popping these old Revell, Monogram an Aurora kits. If you could have found one of these the price would have been prohibitive. For me my wife got me this for Christmas! It is very much like the engines I [...]
This is my first plane since I built some back in the early 70’. Back then we didn’t bother painting the models, only glued them together and slapped on the decals.
All in all a fun build but I think I’ll stick to armor models :-)
First, I would like to thank all the participants to this group build, wheter you finished your builds or not. I must admit, I expected slightly larger participation but I am nevertheless proud of the resulting builds and I hope our group build [...]
