Following my 1 day build I find myself first in the gallery too.

Here is my Testors 2009 boxing of the original 1/48 Hawk R3C-1, first released in 1948 (according to Scalemates). Lt. Jimmy Doolittle flew this Curtiss R3C-2 to victory in the 1925 Schneider Trophy Race with a speed of 232.17 mph. He then set an absolute speed record of 245.7 mph the following day. The real machine hangs today in the Smithsonian in Washington DC. I was lucky enough to see this

I built this fairly basic kit in 6 hours in the IPMS Salisbury Flash Mod in March 2024 (Blitz Build) for more details see the build thread here.

Not a very photogenic plane so here it is with my other Schneider racers.

Here's my Soviet Tin Machine...

 

Nice kit.  Endless opportunities for upgrading or making more fancy.  I pretty much stuck with OOB and I'm happy with the result.

Here's my Junkers F.13, from the 1/72nd scale Revell kit.  It's simple enough build and looks really great in its Luftpost livery.  Seeing as Switzerland won last night's Eurovision, it seems only fitting.  Here's the WiP...

Texaco Doodlebug - 1933 Diamond T Fuel Tanker

DC-3 Passenger Boarding Steps

This is Brengun's 1/144 Texaco Doodlebug fuel tanker and AIM's 1/144 DC-3 Passenger Steps. They were supposed to be accompanied by Roden's 1/144 DC-3 in TWA markings, but Roden didn't do their homework as the claimed 1930's markings are strictly post-war.

Here's the build log, with the DC-3

This is the 1926 Mack AC Bulldog in the logging variant. The logs that were in the kit were quite awful so one day when we were hiking I took a small saw with me, and one of the kit logs, and managed to find a fallen branch of very similar size. So the logs are real. I haven't done anything to them in terms of preservation, we'll just see how that goes. I've had them for a bit in a nice and warm environment so they should be alright for some time. 

 

Build log here.

Another monoplane from the Golden age, here is my Macchi Castoldi MC 72 from a SMER 1/48 kit.

One of my favourite planes and one with a unique engine layout.
