  1. My first Starfighter build ever. OOB with kit decals. If you've never built a Hasegawa 104, it is a beautifully engineered kit. One of their best!
  2. VMA-311 "Tomcats" that is. Gotcha! This is the Hasegawa 1:48 A-4M Low Visibility built Out of Box using Testors Model Master and Mr. Color paints. Decals are TwoBobs 48-092, Low-Viz "Mikes", Part I.
  3. Accurate Miniatures kits. I picked up these beautiful kits at IPMS shows for a total of $10 for all 3!! Pictured are the A-36, P-51A and P-51B.
  4. 1/48 AFV Club F-5E Tribute Build

    I was contacted a few months ago by a former USAF Aggressor pilot who saw one of my builds of the AFV Club F-5E who wanted to have a commission build done of his jet. After numerous email conversations with Mr. Bowen it became clear that my reasonable commission price was out of his range. But every year for the past 5 years I have built a tribute build for a pilot or relative of a pilot and presented them with the model at no expense. Long story short, I told Mr. Bowen that I had another AFV F-5E and would be glad to build his jet for him. This weekend the wife and I are heading to Knoxville to pick up our youngest from College. On the way, we plan to meet up with Mr. Bowen just shy of Atlanta and present him with the completed model -- complete with his name on the canopy rail and, for the first time -- I put my name on the opposite side as the Crew Chief! Here is the final product. Can't wait to meet him and present him with his jet. Will share presentation pictures later this weekend.

  6. The old ESCI kit (including weapons). Superscale decals, MM paint.
  7. Kit: Hasegawa Scale: 1/48 Paint: Model Master Aftermarket: RhinoModelworks seamless intakes, True Details weighted wheels, Furball decals, unknown resin exhausts
  8. 1/48 F-5F, VFC-13

    The F-5B has leading edge slats the T-38 does not. The T-38 is missing the wing farings to the intakes. The T-38 also lacks the housing at the base of the tail rudder. The T-38 has a metal covering on top between the jet exausts. Thats all I remember when converting an F-5B model to a T-38. These ar external diffferences only.
  9. Kit: Hasegawa F-86F-40 Scale: 1:48 Paint: Alclad and Tamiya Extras: SuperScale decals
  10. Kit: AFV Club F-5F Scale: 1/48 Paint: Tamiya and Alclad Extras: TwoBobs decals OOB build with TwoBobs decals.
  11. Academy 1:32 F/A-18C, VMFA-232

    Thanks, Shaun. No real problems at all. Black Box pit was a great fit and the Sierra Hotel Models seamless intakes were basically a drop fit! The Academy Hornet is a joy to build.
  12. Academy 1:32 F/A-18C, VMFA-232

    I used Mr. Color paints for the correct FS colors. The bluish tint is probably due to the lighting and my photo editing.
  13. The Academy 1:32 F/A-18C with the following aftermarket: Sierra Hotel Models seamless intakes Black Box cockpit Rhino Models exahusts and wheels SuperScale decals CAM resin GBU-32 G-Factor brass landing gear
  14. 1/32 Tamiya F-16CJ

    Simon. It's a great kit, Simon. You will enjoy every moment of your build, I promise! Go for it!
  15. This is the 1:32 Tamiya F-16CJ kit OOB with Afterburner decals.
