  1. Hi Everyone, Thought I`d show you some pic`s of my very latest effort, yet another attempt at making Matchbox`s finest into something resembling a `Fat Faced Spad` Finished to represent an A-1E of the 602nd Air Commando Squadron, based at Bien Hoa Air Base, South Vietnam in the early/mid 1960`s Made quite a few improvements, including: widening the propeller blades, reshaping the cowl front, ignition harness, vent on the fin leading edge, wing fences at the wing trailing edge,...... steps on the fuselage, static whips on the rudder, much work on the under
  2. Hi Everyone, Here`s some pic`s of my latest attempt at Trumpy`s 1/48 Dragonfly Finished to represent an aircraft of the 604th Air Commando Squadron, 3rd Tactical Fighter Wing...... based at Bien Hoa AB, South Vietnam, 1967-68 Completed in a short lived experimental camouflage scheme which I`d seen profiles of here and there and which caught my eye..... .... but of which I had my doubts until I picked up a book: `Vietnam Warbirds in Action` by Dana Bell which had a photo of one dated 1967. After much`Googling` I also found a photo of
  3. Hi everyone, Whilst I was concentrating on my `Secret War`theme recently I dragged this one off the shelves and gave it a make over, so I thought i`d show you some pic`s of my newly refurbished, 2nd attempt at building a B-26K from the Monogram kit. Finished as an aircraft of the 609th Special Operations Squadron, Used for `Steel Tiger` missions over Laos on the `Ho Chi Mihn Trail`, using the call sign `Nimrod` On my 1st attempt I used a Paragon Designs conversion but wasn`t 100% happy with the nose as it was and I didn`t make a great job of attaching the resin prop` blad
  4. Hi Everyone, finally finished the T-28 I always wanted to do....... ...an Air Commando`s T-28B in Operation Farmgate markings in the early 1960`s Built from Roden`s T-28C kit ( the B parts are still included ) Finished in the markings of 1st Air Commando Squadron `Soc Trang Angels`, Soc Trang Air Base, Vietnam, 1963 Decals from AOA Decals 48-005, The bombs came from their `D` issue of the kit, the pylons are modified Mohawk items and ...the 500 round Gun Pods I made from scratch from plastic sheet. Finally here`s a pic` wi
  5. Hi all here`s my Roden 1/48 scale T-28 Trojan, completed to represent an aircraft of the 606th Special Operations Squadron based at Nakhon Phanom, Thailand, around the late 1960`s. I actually built this last year some time but have just finished repainting it as I felt that my previous attempt was not `right` The kit actually started out as a `B` version, but is updated with modified Skyraider pylons, weapons from the `stash` Numerous scratch built antenna and Decals from Rodens latest boxing of the kit Spent a long time researching the co
  6. Hi Everyone, Hope you don`t mind me showing you some pic`s of my Roden 1/48 scale AU-23A Peacemaker from my Special Ops corner that was photographed in sunnier times Done as an COIN evaluation aircraft of 4400th Special Operations Squadro, USAF, circa 1972 Built OOB with just antenna and seat belts added Building the minigun was very fiddley but the rest was a fairly easy build as Roden builds go Hope you enjoy looking at. Happy modelling....
  7. Hi Everyone, just thought I`d show you my Monogram 1/48 scale Invader which I modified to represent an Air Commandos B-28B of Operation Farmgate . based at Bien Hoa Air Base, South Vietnam in the early 1960`s The kit started life as a clear nosed B-28C, which I converted with a `Cutting Edge` 6 gun nose. scratch built weapons pylons, reworked antenna and some suitable stores from the spares box and the bogus South Vietnamese markings came from a Skyraider sheet Hope you enjoy looking at.
  8.
