Hey MP 8s that the revell vette?  I have that kit and it looks nice.  Good job.  I also have the Bronco in the stash.  How did that go together?

Thanks,

John

yeah, it's the Revell snap kit. The Bronco goes together well, one word of advice, to make windshield installation easier, don't glue the frame on for painting. Ask me how I know, lol.

I like weird models and big projects. Considering the Wright Flyer next; have it, just gathering courage.

Frank, dig the clippers.  Frankenpanzer, I have to try one of those toon tanks and the AF MP car is awesome.  Never seen that subject built.  What did you start with and where did you source the decals fromlm?

 

This is a replica of a U2 chase plane from the 1990's. 

The base kit is the Revell 1/25th scale 1990 Ford Mustang LX. 

My inspiration.

Since that photo was taken I have spoken to retired Air Force friends who confirmed the shape of the antenna. I carved it from a piece of sheet plastic to obtain the airfoil shape.  

I found a sheet of "US Air Force" markings in various sizes. Don't ask from where, I cannot remember. LOL! I picked one that looked correct. The serial number is strictly fiction and from the same sheet.

Really nice stuff dlh.   Interesting subjects and well executed.

Crown, cool little bike with the tiger.  The sea fury is my favorite British plane.  All nicely done, really like the liberator in that scheme. 

Thanks,

John

Great trio there Nick. And hard to think you don't build armour looking at that Tiger.

Usually I model airplanes. However, sometimes I get burned out building airplanes. When that happens I model cars. My last three builds are a 1/48 Monogram B-24J in Bare Metal Foil and a 1/48 HobbyBoss P-38 in Bare Metal Foil. In between those two builds I built a 1/24 scale hot rod.

That's some mastery of bare metal foil work!  I do cars as well.  Looks cool.  Did those wheels come with the kit?

Thanks,

John

Thanks for the comment regarding the BMF. The P-38 is my eighth model finished in BMF. The wheels on the car came with the kit, a '37 Ford coupe. I looked on Revell's website and they have very few car models.

Geez! So much good stuff here! Here are three of my latest:

Bruce Carr's "Angels' Playmate" that he flew during WWII. Bruce had fourteen air-to-air victories. Air Fix's 1/72 scale P-51D kit.

A T-33A of the Florida Air National Guard. An old AMT/Hasegawa 1/72 scale kit.

An F-106 as it appeared in the 1972 Willian Tell event. Again, an old Hasegawa kit.


OK. On the bench:

Way too much to build in one lifetime...

Tamiya A6M5 5a  (new release a decade ago...) 1/48 scale

Revell B2 Spirit Stealth Bomber 1/144 scale

 B2 Spirit stealth bomber by Justin Ryan, on Flickr

 

Revell Lancaster Bomber Dambusters 1/72 scale
