Eric Morningstar did a massive amount of work on his 1/48 Kinetic Alpha Jet.  Eric added a resin cockpit, wheels and a gun pack from Wingman Models and then fully weathered his model and used decals from Caracal Decals to finish it off.  Have a close look at the weathering....it is awesome.

Tolga Ülgür is here with his eye popping 1/48 Hasegawa P-38J Lightning “Journey’s End”.  Tolga added aftermarket goodies to improve the detail and then gave his P-38 one of his very skilled painting and weathering jobs.  Tolga is a pro when it comes to painting and weathering.

Shawn "phantom" Weiler is here with one of the best looking Phantom camo schemes in my humble opinion.  This is his 1/48 Hasegawa F-4E Phantom #181 finished off in the Hellenic Air Force Aegean scheme.  Shawn finished the wing drop tanks in the older green camo scheme to add a touch of real life to his Greek F-4.  You just can't go wrong with this camo scheme.  

Carmel J. Attard is here with another of his vac-u-formed beauties.  This is his 1/72 Aircraft in Miniature Casa 212 finished in US Coast guard markings.  Carmel added a scratchbuilt cockpit and then dressed up his model with the multi-media smaller detail parts.  I was surprised by the decal options for this kit....it is a large and varied selection, but I think this USCG version will look good in Carmel's display case next to his other USCG birds.  Nicely done Carmel.

Burt Gustafson is here with his 1/48 Hasegawa Kawasaki Ki61-I Hien as it appeared in 1945.  This kit is interesting because it also includes the car seen in Burt's diorama.  I've always admired the look of the Hien and Burt's Ki-61 looks excellent with it's ace pilot figure Lt. Chuichi Ichikawa posing with his aircraft during a moment in history.  Beautiful build Burt....it's good to see your "Tony" on ARC.

I'm a big fan of the BOB and this CF-18 has caught my eye....I love the look of it.
