What-if… RAAF Dassault Rafale

This is the second in a series of ‘what if’ aircraft that I’m building. In 1999 the Australian Department of Defence announced Project AIR 6000 "New Air Combat Capability (NACC)", which was intended to find a replacement for the air combat capa[...]

OV-10D Bronco in “VF-84 tribute” paint scheme

It took me about 8 months to finish this Bronco in my favorite navy camouflage. If you wonder why I made up this scheme - this is my last build for my friend and he did not want to get Bronco in desert or boring gray camouflage scheme. I know he[...]

“Kaisertiger” E-100 1/72 by Skorp

The E-100 from Modelcollect with the Krupp-Turret in 1/72 is part of my rather big Battle of the bulge Diorama. This is my 1st article, I wanted to test for myself how my models are received here on this website and I'm looking forward to all [...]

What if? F-20 Tigershark Aggressor Aircraft, 1/48th scale, Freedom model kits.

F-20 Tigershark Aggressor Aircraft, 1/48th scale, Freedom model kits. The Northrop F-20 Tigershark was a transformation of the classic F-5 series into a low-cost export fighter for U. S. allies during the cold war. At this time the F-5 was a be[...]

Focke Wulf FW-200B in QANTAS Service

To start, the FW-200B never saw service with QANTAS. I started this kit a few years ago and it stalled due to paint matching problems for another What-If scheme. A month ago I took it down from the shelf of doom and its holding pattern and strip[...]

What If F111K RAF

This is the first of my "what if" F-111 K's. The registration is the actual first one in the block set aside for the F-111 after TSR2 was cancelled. I have painted her as the first one to be handed over at a ceremony at General Dynamics factory

1/48 Trumpeter Supermarine Seafang F.Mk.32 “What-If”

You'd think Trumpeter's Seafang would be a shake n' bake kit, however there's always a fly in the ointment with so very many of Trumpy's kits and this one required a fair bit of cutting, shutting & "accurizing" (excuse the expression). The[...]

“Cornered…!”

I decided to take a break from attempting to create replica models of actual subjects, and ended up with with a Great War 'what if?'. I only intended to spend a few days on this little piece of nonsense, but as usual it dragged on and on. The me[...]

F-105D Marineflieger, 1/72 Hasegawa

What if the West Germans back in the day replaced their F-84's with the Thud instead of the F-104? Less fatalities, maybe, I don't know. I got this off the net, there was supposed to be a 'B'[ shorter nose] in the box but it turned out to be a '[...]
