    A few things I have NOT been working on

    My apologies to Frank for the title but sometimes my weird sense of humor kicks in and I can't help myself. The following are kits on hold, which is different than the SOD, the SOD kits will probably never be completed I just haven't decided to bin them yet. Kits on hold I fully intend to finish...

    Me 323D-4

    I did an in box kit review and the start of a build for this a little over a year ago. I got burned out masking all the tiny windows (no mask set available) and it ended up on the shelf. I recently pull it out and finished it up. Only issue I had was that some of the original masking I had done...

    Tu-95MS Bear II in 1/200 scale

    Obligatory start up photos This will be the third one in this series that I've done and unlike the past two this one has no cockpit other than a floor which I think just serves as a bulkhead so no micro parts to deal with. The props look like they might be a challenge to clean up and the...

    Adhesives from my early days of modeling

    I recently was sorting through a small parts cabinet that I used mostly for items relating to my days in HO model trains and ran across the following... I haven't used any tube glues since the early 70's. The Revell Cement is still sealed and the contents is still pliable, the Ambroid I never...

    He 177A-5

    OK, I have decided on this one for my "EPIC" build. Note: For epic I'm going with Webster's New Collegiate Dictionary definition for the word as an adjective, second definition: extending beyond the usual or ordinary especially in size or scope. This kit is beyond my usual in both size and...

    A submarine thing

    I found this kit when I cleared out the stash closet earlier this year, I was going to put it the "get rid of" pile but noticed it only had 36 parts so decided to build it. The last submarine I built was the nuke Nautilus back in the 5th or 6th grade with nothing but a single edge razor...

    Here's one for the queue... History The Sea Fury's development was formally initiated in 1943 in response to a wartime requirement of the RAF, thus the aircraft was initially named Fury. As the Second World War drew to a close, the RAF cancelled their order for the aircraft; however, the...

    Nakajima G10N Fugaku

    I thought I would start out the year with something different :woohoo: So different that a little history seems in order. It's not so much a wiffer but more a Jap46 model. When the tide of the war turned against Japan, it was soon realized that some means to attack the U.S. mainland had to be...
