9 – Testors OV-10A Bronco

I found one of my favourite airplanes and in 48th scale there aren't many options on it. A really fun kit but very little detail so had to create my own, mostly in the cockpit, I added ejector levers, wiring, fuselage ribbing, some boxes, wirin[...]

Lockheed F-117A Nighthawk – Italeri 1/48

Next up is this Italeri re-pop of Testor's old F-117A. This kit's boxing provided decals for a Ghost Grey version of the Nighthawk that has been often seen about in the jet's official post-retirement age. I initially thought that it would be c[...]

Lockheed F-104A Starfighter

An earlier build (early 1990s) and only photographed fairly recently at the Cameron Airport, the Testors 1/48 F-104A Starfighter is a very basic, simple old model. Originally, it was a Hawk release from 1957. I love these birds and really, ho[...]

Hawk 1/48 P-51D Mustang

Here's another of my old builds, a 1/48 Hawk P-51D that I made in 1989 for a club group build on Aces from New Jersey. "Dragon Wagon" (WR-Y) was flown by Capt. James E. Duffy Jr. from the 354th Fighter Squadron, 355th Fighter Group, 8th Air Forc[...]

Testors/Itlaeri 1/72 AC-130A Hercules Gunship

This kit fought me pretty much all the way through. Fit wasn't that great, so there was a lot of putty, sand, prime, repeat. The decals looked great, but turned out to be a very stressful part of the build. The glue was thick and opaque, but [...]

Me 163B V41…

The Red Baron meets the Twilight Zone...Not really the Twilight Zone, but sort of… I had noticed for a while that my very close-in depth perception had been bothering me. Even with my Opti-Visor, I had been having trouble working on fine detail[...]

Testors/Hawk 1/48 OV-10A ‘Bronco’

Hi everyone! This is my Testors 1/48 Bronco, finished as 27TASS C/Os plane. Built OOB, with saratchbuilt details and improvements added at many places, as the kit is quite simplistic and toy-like. If you so wish, you may read the full build revi[...]

Testor’s Ryan PT-20 1/48

Next up is a little side project that has been on-again off again for some time.. This kit was a still-wrapped 1983 boxing, which itself was a reboxing on the old Hawk kit. The kit itself actually went together quite well. The only regret I ha[...]

Testors 1/48 OV-10A Bronco Workbench update

UPDATE 22/3/2020 Hello my friends, I can see things are really tough for poor Italy, Spain and others gradually not looking too good as well. Here in Greece things start to escalate in a bad way, we will see how it goes. Hoping for the best, bel[...]
