This P-51D-25-NA was built in 1944 and served in the USAAF but did not see combat. From 1951 to 1958, it served with the Royal Canadian Air Force, before joining the civilian registry. For a time, it carried the colours of “Old Crow”, the Mustang flown by American ace Col. Clarence “Bud” Anderson. In 2012, […]
This Mustang was built as an F-6K-15-NT (s/n 44-12852) but was later restored as a P-51D and given the markings of the aircraft flown by Lt Col Thomas L. Hayes Jr. of the 357th Fighter Group. After the war, the aircraft flew in the 1946 Cleveland Air Races but crash-landed due to engine failure. It […]
I made the Aermacchi MB-326, or in this case the Atlas Impala Mk I, as a result of a custom commission. This aircraft is Impala Mk I No 503 of the South African air force, and was operated by the Flying Training School at Langebaanweg AFB in the 1970s.
I was recently commissioned a new template for a special occasion: the retirement of an airliner pilot. 🙂 This was something of a challenge as I had little time to do the new template and this first livery. This Boeing 737-3B3 is number 24387. In July 1990 it was part of the fleet of Aéromaritime […]
This P-51C-10-NT Mustang is serial number 43-25147. Built in 1943, its wartime service is unclear but it served with the Israeli air force after World War II, before joining the Israeli civilian registry. It is painted in the colours and markings of “Princess Elizabeth”, the P-51B flown by Lt William Whisner, a future 5.5-victory ace […]

These are the improved views of T-27 Tucano #312086 flown by the Brazilian air force’s “Smoke Squadron” – the Esquadrão de Demonstração Aérea team – in 2009. These views were created for MaxFlite, who made a prop glider with it. These make great colourful gifts for kids at an affordable price – something that might be […]
This is the Mitsubishi A6M2 Model 21 (c/n 5289) flown by Petty Officer First Class Takeshi Hirano during the Pearl Harbor attack on December 7, 1941. Flying from the Akagi, Hirano was part of the first wave. At 08:10 he was shot down by AA fire from the USS Helm and Fort Kamehameha near Hickam. His […]
Sorry for not having posted any updates in nearly a month – I’ve been quite busy ! I’m currently working on a commission for the Aermacchi MB-326. This is still early in the template creation process, but some detailing has already been done, and I’m hoping to have the template ready in a day or […]
And now for another preserved Mustang: P-51B-1-NA s/n 43-24837 registered N515ZB and painted as “Berlin Express” flown by ace Bill Overstreet of the 357th Fighter Group, who became famous for flying under the Eiffel tower while successfully shooting down a Messerschmitt Bf 109 in 1944. “Berlin Express” flew across the Atlantic this year to take part […]
