XR219 BAC TSR-2 Prototype

Bought this little kit from they have some really nice models, and offer them in both completed to your specification of kit form. I chose the kit form as I enjoy modeling, and here's the result. The whitewash TU-160 made an appearance too, the scale of the blackjack dwarfs the TSR-2. If you want a bit of history about the…

I am curious as to how many members would like to see a Forum on our site. I know there are several model airplane forums out there however I want this site to be the best model airplane site it can be. I have seen a lot of negativity on other forums and I am trying to keep a positive atmosphere on this site. I want everyone on this site to feel absolutely comfortable starting discussions, asking questions, and otherwise speaking their minds without the fear of being…

With the help of Rob and Matt I've been able to hone my skills, and have begun adding oil stains to my foils!  I'll be using these to build the tarmac for my airport!  So from now on, what you see at the airport will be the way the foils are laid out!


Again in these pics I have added a old jetway to help show how they will come through the slanting face!


You can also see how the access road will run in between the main building layer, and the slanting face of…

AIRPORT UPDATE - Big additions!

Well after slaving for hours today the side panels are done!  They slant downward away from the regular face of the building giving the airport a more unique look!


It may not look like much, but it literally took me hours to complete!  This is a huge step in completing the airport!


The jetways will come out of the main building through the slanting part and to the aircraft.

TRIP REPORT - DEN-MCI United Airlines

This is the return trip of the previous trip report I posted that went from MCI-DFW-DEN.  That trip report can be found here:

TRIP REPORT - MCI-DFW-DEN American Airlines

Not to long ago, a few months back I took a flight from Kansas City (MCI) to Dallas (DFW), then from Dallas (DFW) to Denver (DEN).


I arrived at the airport several hours early just because I wanted to check things out and do some spotting before the flight.  I always go to see if I can spot the elusive Shamu.  I have over the years seen every Southwest Airlines special scheme (With the exception of their two newest ones Florida and Illinois) except Shamu.  There are three…

Free Ground Foils/Airport Update

Just wanted to show some pics of my under construction airport, as well as some of the free 1:200 ground foils I have available.
