    It's not my faut!

    I had a package arrive today in the mail, and it looks like I have some more projects. But one in particular I can not take the blame for. Nope! The presence of One in this group I have to put the blame on two fellow forum members for building theirs so nice and giving me the bug to buy one...

    Decal issue!

    OK I need some advice. I have been getting some inconsistent results with my decals lately. Some will lay down fine and others will silver badly! I am using Micro Scales, Micro Set to wet the suface before applying the decals. I soak the decals in warm water for about 7-10 seconds to losen...

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

    I got 3 months still. I think I can do this! I have the MPM XP-55 kit already, and have been looking for an excuse to build it. This would be a good one. I also had an idea of twin P-40F's the Merlin powered versions. When I say twins I mean joined, like F-82 twin Mustangs. P-40's were one of...

    P-40E Project

    I have started a few builds based on the aircraft displayed in the National Museum of the United States Air Force. Since it's in my backyard I am able to study these planes when ever needed. One of my favorites since I was a kid has been the Curtiss P-40E painted like Capt Bruce Hollaway's...

    F-47D Project.

    I've been working on this one for about a month and a half now. Pretty much finished her up tonight, just a couple little details and she's done. I live next to Wright Patterson Air Force Base so this project was super fun for me. This is based off the actual F-47D-40 that patroled the air space...
