Better late than never! NATO forces are being bolstered by forward deployed recon birds in W. Germany, based out of Bremgarten Air Base near Freiburg. Due to the fairly limited time, this will be a largely OoB build. At this time I will likely be building RF-4E 35+23.
Hi all, I'm back again. This time, after a unanimous vote (from Christian, whom we all know is exiled to Africa!), my next attempt at self-flagellation will be the notorious Mach 2 B-45 Tornado jet bomber in 1/72. By and large, the Mach 2 offerings have gotten a pretty bad rap -- in most cases not deserved. This is one of those kits. While not exactly a snap-together, and certainly not up to the modern pour-from-the-box-self-assembling model standard, it really isn't THAT bad. (Perhaps because my kit was bought so long ago that it was maybe a first run from the molds and now qualifies for Soc
G’day folks. Latest off the bench for me is Tamiya’s 1/48 F-84G converted to a Royal Danish Air Force RF-84G using the MADS resin set. I wanted to build something other than a NMF Thunderjet as they are not often seen.

I know.....don't worry, I've made amends by cracking out the fantabulosoriffic snap-tite (well it seems that way)1/48 Tamiya F-84G AND in non USAF markings.....not that that's a bad thing This one will be an RDAF RF-84G...you know, the ones with the Fletcher tip tanks housing the camera installation on the port wing...yeah...me neither. It took a bit of hunting around to find out information on these machines however luck has fa
