  1. A neighbor/friend flew this one so I decided to build one for him. He provided numerous photos of Squadron a/c and provided typical load-out. About half of photos he provided showed a/c without 'slime lites' and only one with red stripe turbine burst???? So I didn't add those. Have at it. Bo

    F-82 Twin Mustang

    Since you asked, No!! There are toooo many GOOD kits that, either don't have or under represented, with decals. My 2 cents. Bo

    Eduard 48th Bf-108 Taifun

    It IS a very nice kit!! Kept hoping the Eduard would issue flight control to include leading edge slats; but, no joy!! Just opened slats myself. M'schitts slats should be opened on the ground. Also, planned and tried to fold paper and masking tape to make that sun shade. I couldn't get either to work so I carved and attached a piece of plastic sprue. Build urs and be sure to post it here so we all can enjoy it!! Bo
  8. While building the Phantom, below, I pulled out this kit that I've wanted to build since it's release. Scheme, too. Cut out leading edge slats and carved sun shade outta plastic sprue. Eduard seatbelts. Have at it. Bo
  9. Hidden away in my stash, I found several (5 or 6) Revell Little Jewel series car/auto kits. 1961 XKE Jaguar, 30 vintage Packard, Cadillac, Duesenberg, Mercedes 540K. All kits are compete and some even inside original wrap. Also found some (again 5 or 6) old Pyro early aviation 48th scale kits. Need assistance from you that know how valuable these kits are. I haven't the slightest!! TIA Bo

    Kitty Hawk 1/48 Bell AH-1Z Viper

    That's one MEAN looking machine!! Excellent!! Bo
  11. Thanks. I did. He had no Pyro nor Revell auto kits. I'll just run them up the Flag Pole in Saturday's Show and see who salutes it!! LOL!! The cars are pretty nice kits and that '61 XKE would look good beside a contemporary fighter. Bo

    1/48 Monogram F9F-5 Panther

    Cuz, there ya go!! That's one beautiful build!! I never even noticed all these extra Forum subject and sure never opened any until I posted build on first Forum. Was quickly told of error. (Too many Forums!!) I've always liked the Monogram Panther, albeit a -5. U did good, Cuz. Bo Roberts Wanted the -2)
  15. Whoa!! Now that's NICE!! Great build!! Bo
  16. During Phantom build below, I pulled out this kit that I've admired since it came out and always wanted to build this favored scheme. Cut out leading edge slats and carve, out of kit sprue, the inside sun shade. Eduard seat belts. Fun build. Again, have at it. Bo
  17. Duplicate post. deleted.
  18. Neighbor/friend flew these so I decided to build one of them. He provided numerous photos and typical mission load-out. About half of his photos, a/c didn't have slime lites and only one had red stripe turbine burst marking. So I didn't add those. Shark mouth as comes from MicroScale Decals was wrong style. Wasn't ready to hand paint the correct one. Have at it. Bo EDIT: Put is name on Pilot canopy and his Wife on Rear seat drive one!! (Gotta get my fun where I can!!)

    1/48 Special Hobby X-15A-2 (updated 01 May 2018)

    Outstanding build!! I've always loved the look of the X-15 and wanted a Monogram/Tamiya quality 48th scale kit!! This kit is NOT of that level; but, after ur touch, it sure looks like it!! Good show all around!! Bo
  21. Alright. I re-posted my images that departed the scene recently. Hope they stay this time. Bo
  22. This is but one of several UH-1H Hueys I flew during my tour in 1969-1970 time frame. The white accent markings are from the 2nd Plt., a Lift Plt or a Slick. Plt. The 1st Plt, another Slick Plt has Red where mine is white. The Gun Plt had Blue in those same places; however, the Gunships were C and M Hueys. We were the Demons, Slicks, and Devils, Guns. I personally think our Company, 134th AHC, had some of the best looking markings over there. All of these accent colors were brush painted!! I even seen Crew Chiefs paint over the black last 3 tail numbers using a rag over his finger!! Crude?? Yeah, we weren't the Air Force!! That said, the maintenance of these old War Horses was second to none!! Our Crews took pride in their mounts and kept them clean as possible, given the environment. A modeler and photographer I'm NOT. But here it is anyway. Adding the detail that's NOT seen was fun and brought back memories. I even added the GREEN Aircraft Log Book. (And that can be seen but not in these photos.) Questions?? Comments??

  23. Anyone else notice posted photos going away??? What's the best photo posting service, now?? Postimage.org is what I've been using. Bo
  24. When in the WORLD is someone going to make a NEW Tool, 48th scale AH-1G???? The first design from the start, attack helicopter with tons of Vietnam era markings!!! Geeesh!! Bo Roberts
