The October theme was "Rice or Beans". Any Japanese or Mexican subject, or both.
We start with Joe Hegedus' entry: A Japanese Ki-61 Hein or "Tony".
Next up is a 48th scale Tamiya A6M-2b Zero by Nate Swift (sorry about the focus). Tamiya kit (the cheap one), Eduard color PE for Hasegawa Zero, scribed fuselage panel lines, markings for Saburo Sakai’s Zero, Rabual, late summer 1942.
And finally in the theme category are a pair of Japanese aircraft from Ken Kelly. As usual, Ken brush painted both with Acrylics.
...and Fujimi Val.
And now for the non-theme models:
John Bray completed his diorama depicting the German retreat in the desert ahead of Rommel's forces. Camels, motorcycles, tanks, a tracked vehicle and soldiers; John sure knows how to bring life to basic "tan".
Close up of the Tommies trying to recover the German motorcycle with sidecar.
And a closeup of the Grant tank.
Gerry Whiteside is making some good progress on the Top Hatters' models for the Museum Display. Here's the Monogram 72nd scale Curtiss F11C-2 Goshawk.
And Austin brings in another Halo model.
Joe Hegedus says the Porsche 924 is the hottest Porsche made -- at least in looks!
The Monogram 48th scale Convair F-102 Dagger is by Andy White and represents an aircraft from the Vermont ANG, 154th FIW located at Burlington Airport. Andy drooped the flaperons and used custom decals from Starfighter Decals.
