Home of the modeling savants....Celebrating thirty-eight years of modeling fun, education, and history in 2022!

That's all for this week.  Our best wishes go out to Jerry, Alan, and Tom and we'll see you back here next week!

Doug Seekman's first model: This is the revell 1/48 PBY-5. Painted with a pretty good assortment of paints: Tamiya aluminum on the fuselage; model master chrome yellow on the top of the wing; model master aluminum on the propellers; alclad aluminum on the beaching gear. Aeromaster decals representing a U.S. coast guard aircraft from pre-ww2. Weathered with pastels and oil washes. Pretty nice kit.

Doug's third model: An oldie but goodie: monogram p-39 airacobra painted with model master enamels; superscale decals; weathered with oils and pastels. Really nice kit.

           (Note...these images not suitable for young children or immature adults.  Don't look, JR!!)

Mark Jahsan:  This is the old Monogram kit of the Flying Sub from Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea. Fun little build of a cool concept.

Here are a few photos from the Yankee Lady.  So much fun…but sobering when you think about the 79,265 airmen who lost their lives flying the B-17.  That is a horrendous number.

 

Keith Lemke reports in: Facebook online entry, some of us made this up coming issue. I believe my dio will be in here.  (That's exciting, Keith!)

Doug's second beauty: This one was on the forum site back in March. The dragon 1/48 fw-190a-5 built as an fw-190a-6/r11 nightfighter. Painted with gunze Mr Color. Peddinghaus decals; scratchbuilt fug-217 radar aerials; Quickboost resin seat. Weathered with ammo mig panel washes and pastels. Nice kit.
