    1/24 Fujimi Porsche 356B Roadster 1600s

    All 356's I've seen after being restored have had a satin black undercarriage. I have never seen a mint unrestored 356 to know how they were from factory. More than likely thebottom of the car would have had what ever base ( such as primer or sealant to prevent corrosion ) then it would have had...

    1/24 Fujimi Porsche 356B Roadster 1600s

    I love the 356 in full race dress! It's a tuff call for me as to weather I like the old vintage road race look, or a more modern version on the old 356. I know it's tuff to find a cooler color on a 356 (though it was used to death on them) than Porsche Silver Met. That color jsut fits that car...

    1/24 Fujimi Porsche 356B Roadster 1600s

    Thats a cool old kit. I would be hard pressed to not make it race version myself. Matching factory colors can be a huge pain. I would first start by researching the 356 on the net. I would choose the color combo I wanted to go with then begin looking at differant paint manufacturers color...

    Pearl Harbor P-40

    Yes, the rudder is a seperate piece o this kit. It has been a blast to build. I have bought 4 of them already. For the money it is at the top of the board as far as 1/72 P-40 kits go. Airfix nocked it out of the park on this one as well as about 7 other kits I have bought from them recently...

    Threesome with twins! TWin P-40F's and Curtis XP-55 Ascender

    Moving forward! I got the two P-40 kits I needed. I first mocked up the twin with P-40E's, and I didn't like the look, so I decided to go with P-40M's as they have a slightly longer tail. This looked much more proportional. I started making patterns for the center wing halves. and I have started...

    Pearl Harbor P-40

    I got her all buttoned up less the lighting details. Local Hobby shop is out of the transparent colors I need so I'm going to have to wait till next week to finish the lights. But here are the pics of her all together. This was a very fun build, and fitting I finished her up on Veterans Day.

    Italeri Grumman F7F Tigercat

    :o Beautiful build! Love the weathering, but really like the exhaust stains. Can I ask what your method was to do that? It's very realistic looking.
