The Completed Build List

Updated: Jun 10

Below is my list of the 1/48th scale kits that I have built over the past four+ decades. I have been assembling and painting model aircraft since I was a teenager. Obviously over time my skills have improved and my goals have changed.

Initially I built for fun, often making kits with fictitious markings and taking liberties with the paint schemes. That all changed after I brought an example of my recently completed Hawker Typhoon IB into my father's retail store. As it happened, a gentleman (I believe his name was Harry Lucas) came into the store that day and upon seeing the kit, commenting that he did not recognize the aircraft's squadron codes. I explained that I had just made them up, to which he politely added that the camouflage pattern was not accurate either. Suitably impressed, I asked him how he knew all this at a mere glance... "I flew them during WWII" he replied. Gobsmacked with the realization that this hobby wasn't necessarily just about some neat looking aircraft but encompassed history and persons intricately involved with these machines, I set a new course. My model builds would now focus more on being replicas of historic aircraft and in many cases would serve as a small tribute to those tied to its history.

I produced mostly museum examples (with little if any weathering) for display after this shift and much later got involved in suitably weathering my aircraft builds. Amazingly most of the model aircraft that I have built over time, still exist in my collection today. Some serve as a reminder of skills and patience progress and every one is a less-than-perfect example of a learning process. Most are displayed in multiple units of clear-front display shelves (to keep the dust out). Fortunately the kids have all grown up and moved out now, so my growing collection has now been allowed to take over the basement area :)

My goal here is to eventually get photos of most of these aircraft builds and get them posted on this site (keeping in mind that this is going to take quite a while) The ultimate goal is to have a brief article about each kit build, however we shall see if I can reach back into my distant memory to give you something interesting about each kit.

Let me know if there is a kit build you want me to cover, sooner rather than later, and I will see if I can accommodate you here.

Click on a listed aircraft link to take you to that aircraft's page (if it has been posted to date).

What's that old saying... "If you build it they will come". I don't know who "they" are but let's start the build and see who shows up :) If you are already a model builder or a fledging one, let's hope something here keeps you inspired - I've found it's a great community - Cheers!
