F-4J Phantom Tamiya 1/32

Its been quite a while since I have posted anything so thought maybe time to do some more. I have been modelling away and frequently visit this and other sites. Maybe I been inspired! I have always loved the F-4 Phantom and managed to get the T[...]

World War II Dive Bombers

For several years I had a goal of building 1/48 scale models of all the Navy dive-bombers that saw action in WWII. I'd been fascinated with dive-bombing ever since I read Walter Lord's book "Incredible Victory", and saw the movie "Midway" in th[...]

1/35th US Navy Riverine Command Boat

Greetings! A kit I haven't seen built a whole lot is Tiger Model's 1/35th CB90 Combat Boat. Rumors and the internet have it that Tiger is coming out with a US Navy version but I am impatient and decided to convert their existing kit into a Riv[...]

Academy F-14A 1:48 (1988 tool)

I must say I was always intimidated by builds of modern aircraft but this build changed my mind. The kit is from 1988 and does not stand up to the new Tamiya kit but I managed to have a lot of fun with it. Lots of fit issues and old decals but I[...]
