Here is my finished Gotha GIV bomber.  Besides zeppelins, these accounted for the first bombing raids over Britain.  Very few were lost over the target, but quite a few were lost on landings as flying them was much easier than landing them.

The Roden kit is very good, but this was the first one I encountered that required cutting and scratchbuilding.  That was due to them creating a single kit that encompassed the whole line of Gothas: GII thru GV.



















A little smaller than the British Handley Page O-400.

Hard to believe anything as primitive and fragile as WWI planes were, could be turned into bombers! The WII Soviet bomber looks a lot like the design of some of the German ones. Good thing they wore the red star logos!

Both of those are great builds. Congrats guys.

Here is my Tamiya 1/32 A6M5 Zero.  I learned some things to do when I tackle my A6M2

Finally, the flying boat is finished. This kit is a re-issue from Hasegawa. A very interesting subject, but the quality of the kit was a disappointment.

A beautiful build, Cole. Great paintwork with the streaking across the wings.
