Wrapping up the Airfix Bf109E, did an E3. Weathering went poorly, I am unhappy.

Just beginning an old Fujimi Bf110D3.

Got a Dragon FW190G3 and Tamiya Panther Ausf. A plus accessories incoming from China.

I never used to be a Wehrmacht builder but there's the proof. I've been turned.

Trumpeter's UAE BMP 3. It is fairly easy to put together and has nice details. It my first go at making the tracks and I have to say it's been a learning experience.

Just finishing up painting with my first "big boy" airbrush, and haven't really got the hang of thinning the paint and control of the airbrush, Lol. You live and learn.





looks a bit washed out and slightly pink with the flash, honest.

Working on finishing the German Elefant in 1/35 from Italeri and a 1/10 scale cartoon German WWII soldier. Elefant project keeps growing with brass aftermarket kits. Taking WAY too long to finish. At my age now, these brass kits are a real bear on the eyes and fingers. ouch!

I'm making a small interplanetary cargo shuttle from the old 1/25 scale AMTronic car kit. With a little luck it'll be ready for the Hamilton show in Feb-March.








The addition of 1/48 seating really cements the change in apparent scale and, I think, really sells the fact this is a capable light transport.

Here are the passenger seat masters I've made for the shuttle. There will be several relatively permanent floor mounted seats and the walls will be lined with the shorter jump seats, which, as you can see, can fold up to increase cargo space.

I still have to add the seat belts, but that's just a matter of getting something useful off one of my PE sheets.





The crew seats are pretty stock F86 fighter pilot ejection seats. They look official without being terribly "ejection"-like. You can see them roughly in place in the photos above.

Paul,
Did you ever finish this build. If so could you post more photos of it.

I wish! Those are very solid old wood desks.

It's just an old pressboard computer desk

Robert lives in New Jersey, so I'm going to drive down from Napanee to hand them over. Where are you located?

Well then, this has potential. I could most likely deliver it for you.
