Scale Warbird Models

This past summer our boy and I finished up a couple of scale Warbird models. When the Texas weather really heats up in July and August we spend some afternoons tinkering on models. We painted and added decals to a few and they were added to our displays in the office.


Quick build 1/72 P-47 Thunderbolt and 1/48 F8F Bearcat

1/48 PBY Catalina

1/72 F4U Corsair

The weather has been pretty nice this Fall so we are visiting local airports shooting photos and videos. We will be back on more models this winter! Watch for a few more model posts after the holidays.

Visit to the Vintage Flying Museum - Video

Our latest video production has been posted on our YouTube Channel. This video features highlights from visits to the Vintage Flying Museum in Ft. Worth, Texas. Our boy and I visit every couple months to check out "the bomber hangar" as we call it. Depending on their airshow schedules there could be multiple World War Two bombers on display. The Commemorative Air Force B-29 FIFI and B-24 Diamond Lil both winter in the museum at Meacham Field. Also inside are two Douglas Invaders along with other Warbird and vintage aircraft. When in North Texas stop by this great collection housed in a World War Two era B-29 bomber hangar. Watch the video for a walk around inside.

Evergreen Aviation Museum Visit

Hughes H-4 Hercules
A family trip had us in the Pacific Northwest about two weeks ago. One day I took our boy to the Evergreen Aviation Museum in McMinnville, Oregon. My last visit there was over 10 years ago so I was curious to see the museum again. A good number of the Warbirds in the collection were purchased by the Collings Foundation but I was pleasantly surprised that there were plenty of unique airplanes on display. A good number of vintage, Warbird and jets fill the space around the flying boat.

H-4 is just huge!
The main mission for the trip was to have our boy see the Hughes H-4 Hercules flying boat. The massive airplane just overwhelmed him! The 8 engine, one of a kind aircraft fills the main display building with ALL the other airplanes fitting under its wings and tail!

The Goose and PBY look small.

Me-262 replica on display.
So I highly recommend the museum. Plan on spending 4-6 hours there to make the cost worth it and explore the multi-building museum.
