Re: JFEX and Nellis Weapons School Sneak Peek

Thankfully no flares, but all the aluminium bits sounded like glass falling to the ground. This shot is more of a record shot showing 6 of the C-17s leaving ...

Re: Revell 1/32 Focke-Wulf Fw190D-9

Over the years I have used with Tamyia Smoke, I really thinned it out with acrylic thinners to the point it was almost water. From there I basically layered the smoke paint till I got what I wanted. I've found that d...

Not much can beat a Mirage F-1! Those lines just look so good! Nice build and if you ever get the chance.. try our Kitty Hawks F-1. It is well worth the price.
