Kitty Hawk UH-1H Huey

Hello iModeler! This is my Kitty Hawk Huey kit finished as a Vietnam War era aircraft using Werner's Wings decals. Typical Kitty hawk kit with typical Kitty Hawk issues, but it is still the BEST Huey kit in this scale by far, and I would not m[...]

Sky raider done

On Wednesday, my school which was online that day cut 75 percent of the day so I only had 2 hours. After finishing homework, I spent almost the entire day working on the sky raider and managed to finish it. The only thing I added to the kit was [...]

A-4C Skyhawk – Hasegawa 1/48

This is the Hasegawa 1/48 A-4C Skyhawk, done up in the colors of VA-153 aboard USS Coral Sea during the Vietnam Conflict. The kit is slightly enhanced with a small Eduard instrument panel and seatbelts and some scratch built quilting to the side[...]

The Three Soldiers pt.4

The final display, upon which all three kits are nested, needed to be planned to be separated for transport. My initial idea was a circle with a chevron cut out to resemble the wall at the actual location in D.C. The base would cut into sectio[...]

The Three Soldiers pt.3

I wanted to render the last kit as the statue on display in D.C. The actual statue is not a monotone bronze color, but instead has the uniforms, equipment and weapons colored with epoxy paint. Bare skin areas are left ‘in the rough’ though the[...]

The Three Soldiers pt.2

Second of the models (all Gold), I just rushed, trying to accomplish a one day build, resulted in improper fits and the necessity to reposition the mid character on the base - not according to assigned holes. Yep - had to drill my own positionin[...]

The Three Soldiers pt.1
