    I have been modeling 1/32 a/c since, well, I can't remember when (I started plastic modeling at age 5). Probably my first large scale plane was the Revell F-102, the one with all of the cool moving features. At present I am in the midst of a TF-104G conveersion, an X-15A2, and a Spit IX, Highflight conversion. Next in line will probably be the FW 190C-0v18 Kangaru conversion. <br />Otherwise, it's 1/35 modern armor, HO railroading, and 1/18 diecast Porsche protoype racers.<br />Oh. yeah, my real focus is my 12 year old. That's why so little gets done in modeling.

  1. Excellent job on this kit. I’ve just picked up the TF-104G, your build is a guide and inspiration. Thank you.

    Su-25M1 / Su-25UBM1 is coming.

    Sorry. The set I have was produced but Foxbot. Anxious to see the content of yours

    Su-25M1 / Su-25UBM1 is coming.

    I have this ser, too. The Trumpeter Su-25ub kit is near completion, assembly that is. Paint is next. It will be a somewhat formidable task. Bill

    Rogozarski IK-3 Royal Yugoslav fighter

    Long, long ago, in a galaxy far, far away, I converted a Monogram 1/48th Hurricane to resemble an IK-3. Probably my first radical conversion. Used a couple of pounds of putty. I’ve always been fascinated by the aircraft of the small states of Europe, pre-WWII.

    F4D....the Ford

    Mighty purty. The Ford has always been a favorite of mine. Your rendering certainly does it justice. Best of luck at the contest! Bill

    Bf 109 G6 Romania

    Beautiful job on a difficult camouflage. I have a sweet spot for Romanian Aircraft as my son is Romanian. Your 109 is superb. Wish I could model as well. Thanks Bill

    Su-25M1 Digital Camo Trumpeter 1:32

    Welcome, welcome. Your SU-25 is spectacular. I'm currently working on the Trumpeter SU-25ub, same camo. I hope mine approaches yours.

    Any interest in a NF-104A conversion?

    The NF-104 is one of my favorite aircraft -- X15, junior. I'd be part of the market for the conversion.

    Good Lord ... I know the feeling! Bill Winkes

    Markings available and what kit?

    A likely source, but in 1/48th, will be Syhart.
  14. I'd love to have the early Hunter bits and pieces. Lots of lovely schemes.
