  1. Thank you Chris! Yes it was a steep learning curve, but I really enjoy doing it now.
  2. So was I Mark lol.....doing all metal finishes is quite the undertaking. Thanks for checking her out!
  3. Hahahahaha thank you so much! Let’s do an article 😁
  4. Thanks Mark! It is hard to do, I won’t be doing it again for a while!!
  5. Thank you 😁
  6. Hey Gil, these are 1/32 scale Itialeri kits. They are ok, they lack detail so be prepared to do some scratch building. thanks Gil!!
  7. Looks awesome! I want to do a 1/32 scale version!
  8. Both of my metal F-104s together
  9. Hi All, Here is my second all metal skin Starfighter, this version is from Dagnang AB in Vietnam 1968. Once again each panel is hand cut from aluminum sheets. This was my first attempt at a real metal skin aircraft, lots of experimenting on this one! I finished this model about 6 months ago.
  10. Great looking build! Perfect camo!
  11. Thanks!! Yep, F1 cars are fun!!
  12. Hahahahaha!! I’m quick! Thanks for checking it out. I have another F1 build I’ll post soon. love doing race cars.
  13. Thanks Gary! It’s 1/12 scale
  14. Hi All, Here is a build of a vintage 1975 Tamiya Ferrari 312T. This was actually a great kit considering the age, there were several fit issues but back in the day they weren't using computers so that can be expected. This is such great subject matter as I am a huge Ferrari fan! I hope you enjoy this build. Rick
  15. Thanks so much! The actual module is not perfectly smooth, all the panels are pretty rough so it was fun to use thin aluminum sheets to replicate the look. Never been a fan of aluminum foil, you can’t sand it and it doesn’t hold paint well. thanks for checking out my build!
  16. Thank you very much!!
  17. I sure will! Thank you! Up next I have a Ford GT 40 to build for a client then hopefully I could fit in the Shuttle 😀
  18. Wow how cool! That would be useful. I know Tamiya makes a nice shuttle kit.
  19. Yikes!! Thanks Tom I will definitely hit you up if I do another. I want to do shuttle right after re entry so it’s nice and dirty or a full Apollo rocket.
  20. Hi Tom, Thank you! I mainly used hiresolution photos from NASA and the Smithsonian. I will need to check out the book. I built that model for the folks at AirBus in France. I’d like to build some more space kits.
