North Vietnamese Mig-21PF in 1/48 Scale from Eduard kit

This is from a little while back - was my first attempt at Natural Metal Finish work with Alclads... It's Eduard's Profipack series 1/48 scale Mikoyan-Gurevich Mig-21PF in North Vietnamese Air Force markings. Used Alclad Airframe Aluminium on[...]

F-4C, Cam Ranh Bay, S. Vietnam

In November 1966 dad landed at Cam Ranh Bay in S. Vietnam, with the 559th Tactical Fighter Squadron. When he departed in September of 1967 he had flown 241 missions for 401.6 combat hours, with 69 of those missions over N. Vietnam. I don't have [...]

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

Dedicated to my big brother. My model showcase is a tribute to my brother and other Vietnam Vets. Just like the original statue at the Vietnam Veterans Memorial, each kit depicts a sense of unity and sacrifice; I wanted to depict alternate menta[...]

1/35 AFV M35A1 Quad .50 Vietnam Gun Truck

To be honest I really dont know much about this truck as it was used in Vietnam, but when I saw a picture of it on the box top I just needed to build it. I built this a few years back after a brief hiatus from serious model making. My 1st chil[...]

Cessna O-1E Bird Dog – Hasegawa 1:48

Exactly one year after my last model, Cessna O-2A Oscar Deuce in 1:48 scale, I’m here again with its older cousin Cessna O-1E Bird Dog in the same scale. Coming from Hasegawa (ModelUsa), it requested a lot of improvements summarized as follow: [...]

McDonnell F-4C Phantom II (1/48, Eduard)

This build came out of nowhere when Eduard issued limited edition Good evening Da Nang. SEA camo scheme is notorious, so I decided to go for genuine light gull grey over white scheme, which have seen early days on Vietnam War. There was a lot o[...]

F-100D Super Sabre ‘Pahodee Tiger’

Hello all. So here's my just completed Trumpeter 1:48 'Hun'. What a kit !!, simply fell together with almost no input from me. Only additions are a Quickboost seat and Eduard pre-painted etch set for the pit - neither of which are actually 'need[...]
