1/48 Yellow Wings!

Recommended Posts

One of my absolute favorites; next to Nifty Fifties!


Very old build of the Wings vacuform Vindicator, long before the AM kit!



This is sneaky...as it IS a 30's USN scheme, but is the colors used for the "Admirals Barge"; dark blue with silver wings. Still...it dates from the same period.....this is my 1rst vac biplane, the old Bald Eagle Grumman Duck; once more, built before the Glencoe kit was rereleased or the CA kit came along.


Classic Castings resin kit of the P-26C Peashooter, built before the Acdemy kit came along.


Sierra Vac SBC-3 Helldiver. Decals are an unreleased set from Fowler.


Sierra vac PT-19 Cornel


Wings vac SOC-3 Seagull


Wings vac BT-1. Should have left the canopies closed on this one....


Hobby Boss F4F-3 Wildcat in pre-war markings


CollectAire resin T-45 Goshawk. Homemade markings for the USN Naval Aviation Centennial; built a couple of years ago, before the Kinetic kit and markings came out! (And you're welcome!)


Academy P-26C Peashooter with Starfighter decals


Yet another Classic Castings resin P-26c, with Starfighter decals


Hasagawa 1/32 Boeing F4B-4 with Lone Star resin interior


Please excuse the other models, but this pic shows my 1/48 PBY-1 Flying Boat in 1937 markings, converted from the Monogram PBY-5 using the resin Belcher Bits set. The rest of those models are 1/32!


That's not absolutely every one of my yellow wing birds, but certainly most of them. Doubt I'll get to building my F11C-2 Goshawks in time to make this theme, since I'm stuck at my dad's house for a while! Hope yall enjoy. Comments and questions are welcome, as always!

Here's one and half more. Half 'cause only the bottoms of the Magister's wings are yellow.


The Airfix DeHavilland Tiger Moth.




And the Frog/Air Lines Miles Magister.



Just to keep me honest. see the bottoms are yellow.
