Back to model airplanes!


                                             Thank you, Jim Davis and Garfield, for making us laugh!

The last several weeks have been very busy with the holidays, business year end and I got Covid.  But I did keep busy with some plane building.  I still consider myself a novice at building airplane kits.

First up is the Grumman. I really enjoyed this kit.  It has several options as a carrier plane, the landing gear can be down and you can have the winds folded back.  

I chose the Hollywood version with the canopy back.  I am still growing my paint collection. The pale blue here is too pale.  
The seamline needs work...but I am a novice!  I can get away with that! 

The P40 is a simple build.  It goes together easy.  This is new tooling.  I just need to weather better. 
Prop Decals are nice and add a little extra detail 

I like this!  Great decals.  

I really enjoyed this kit.  Easy and old school, again new tooling. 
My lament is my paints.  I have some different ones on order.  The yellow is from Vallejo and it is very thin.  I can't get it to thicken up.  

Kate is sweet!  This is a kit with 2 planes in the box.  Both are identical. 

Not a lot of detail and the landing gear is simplistic. 

Fun kit anyway... especially if you are experimenting with painting as I am.

Soon I am going to put the Revell Battle of Britian kit together. (After a few other things...)

  1. Wonderful model making and painting. I hope that you got time to make those planes from the Revell set and can post about them soon.
