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[...]

A-1H Skyraider US Navy

This is the 1/48th Tamiya Douglas A-1H Skyraider. US Navy. VA25 squadron. The only additions to the kit, apart from the decals, were etched seat belts. I used Aeromaster Acrylic Matt Light Gull Grey, and Tamiya Matt White to paint the model. T[...]

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[...]

F6F Hellcat – 1:32 Hasegawa

First, let me say this—I originally wanted to title this post, “To Hell with this F6!” But, thought our web site benefactors wouldn’t appreciate it. However, my fellow builders, this kit was anything but fun. Maybe its because I’ve been dist[...]
