Coming soon, here's the design for a USS Missouri BB-63 bridge at 75% complete. Although intended specifically to help improve the Tamiya and Very Fire 1/350 scale kits, it will also be made available in 1/450 and 1/700 scales. Other scales are possible.

Some of what you see here will change as the design matures. [edit: this model is available for sale at https://www.model-monkey.com/]

Thanks, Miguel!

Also coming soon is a World War I-era "Spandau" LMG 08/15 machinegun for Revell's classic 1/28 scale Fokker Dr.I triplane and Fokker D.VII. It can be made available in other popular scales. This weapon was made famous by aces like Manfred von Richthofen and Werner Voss.

Here's the design at about 50% complete. Some of what you see will change.

Seeking help from you Supermarine Spitfire experts. Seeking an authoritative drawing similar to the propeller blade drawing below for a Rotol wide-chord propeller blade fit to Spitfire Mk.V, etc. Any help is hugely appreciated.

Nearly complete, wheel wells for classic 1/24 scale Airfix P-51D / P-51K / Mustang Mk.IV kits will be released shortly.

The test piece below will be tweaked for best fit and significantly further detailed. The design benefited from scans of original North American Aviation blueprints. The model's aft spar is set at the proper angle to help the modeler correct the Airfix kit's wing dihedral, which is molded too flat.

Here are some renderings of the design so far. Some of what you see here will change.
