    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. Truly inspiring work! As my skills do not remotely approach yours, I’m inspired to buy and build IBG’s PZL P.11C kit. thank you for your build thread. Bill Winkes (Wienczkowski)
  2. I am. Urgently mid-build of a Trumpeter, SU-25UB. Very pleasant build. I recommend it.
  3. I don’t suppose building two Italeri F-104’s counts as a multi-engine build, does it? Bill Winkes
  4. Excellent job on this kit. I’ve just picked up the TF-104G, your build is a guide and inspiration. Thank you.
  5. 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.
  6. Mighty purty. The Ford has always been a favorite of mine. Your rendering certainly does it justice. Best of luck at the contest! Bill
  7. A favorite scheme. The yellow version is on my future build list. Superb job, sir!
  8. 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
  9. Welcome, welcome. Your SU-25 is spectacular. I'm currently working on the Trumpeter SU-25ub, same camo. I hope mine approaches yours.
  10. Thank you for posting your excellent build. It motivates mr to continue my own Su-25ub.
  11. The NF-104 is one of my favorite aircraft -- X15, junior. I'd be part of the market for the conversion.

    Oops.

    Good Lord ... I know the feeling! Bill Winkes
  13. A likely source, but in 1/48th, will be Syhart.
