    My digital camera finally decided to work, so here I have some of my models. More will be coming either later today or tomorrow.

    First off, I have my Ostfront (Winter) Diorama featuring a Panzer V Panther, a StuG IV, a T-34/76 (knocked out) and a T-34/85, with Soviet and German infantry, all in 1/35 scale. The /76 is actually one of my Dad's old models, but the main cannon had broken off, along with one of the wheels and the front hatch was gone. We made a hatch from scratch using some old extra pieces we had lying around, and the gun is actually part of a tree that turn out to be the perfect diameter. I understand that there's no way the tanks would get this close, but it was made for the shelf, so space was limited.

    Holy hell those are huge. Sorry about that. Anybody know a way to re-size them so they don't show up so huge on this site?

    Here's my 1/32 Trumpeter Me 262. I don't really like the paint job I did.

    Sorry for the size of the earlier ones, I figured out how not to make them so big.

    Here are my Airfix 1/24 scale Mustang (RCAF) and Bf 109E. The paint job on the 109 turned out fantastic in my opinion, but the terrible decals and the horrible fit ruined it.

    Next we have my Monogram P-61 Black Widow, Mongram Fw 190 F-8 and my F-4U Corsair in FAA markings. The Black Widow is 1/48, while the other two are 1/32. I actually did the paint job on the 190 very wrong, but I think it looks better than it does in the instructions. The Corsair my Dad built for me when I was a baby, having my birth year as its number, so that is probably my favorite model just because of that. That rounds out my WW2 plastic model plane collection (minus the 1/32 Dora that's in the works).

    Here we have my two modern jets, a CF-18 and an F-15. The F-18's original decals literally crumbled whenver you attempted to put them on, so we had to go find some RCAF decals, and it turned out horrible haha. The F-15 is actually the first model I did completely by myself.

    Lastly, although they are not the same type of model that I've shown you insofar, I have my 1/18 21st Century Toys aircraft collection, in order of how I got them. First off, we have my F4U Corsair in the markings of Ira Kepford. Next, my P-51D Mustang in Col. Jesse B. Lincoln's markings, then after that (and my favourite) my Fw 190D-9. The following year I got the Bf-109G-6 and this past spring break I got my hands on the TBF Avenger in Atlantic markings. That's all of them. Hope you enjoy!

    Looks like my bookcase....War books, encyclopedias and nature! Great pics, Catch. Those last ones, are they pre-made models in 1/32 or larger? I have two that I bought already made, a Bf 109E and a Stuka.

    Those two are pre-made 1/18 scale made by 21st Century Toys. My brother actually has a Bf 109E in the black pain scheme, the Stuka in the Afrika Corps Snake paint job and a Spitfire that are different than mine. And as for the books, we have another bookcase full haha.
