Model by George Perkowski >> This Syrian Mig is the 1/48th scale Academy kit. I added some cockpit detail and a resin seat (I don't remember the mfg.). I added some landing gear detail and the rest is basically out of the box. A mixture of water, India Ink and a drop of dish detergent was used to high light the panel lines. Model Master enamel paints were used and Testors Dull Coat lacquer cut with automotive lacquer thinner for the final finish.
Model by George Perkowski >> This Egyptian Mig is the 1/32nd scale Trumpeter kit. Some cockpit detail was added and a resin seat. I used spring steel wire for the antennas. The same paints and finishing techniques were used for the paint scheme.
Model by Greg Wise >> 1/48 Academy Kit that swallowed every thing Eduard had available plus plenty more resin aftermarket stuff. Lots of overkill on this one. and really not much over all improvement. I did this one over a course of 5 years or so, most of the time she collected dust in the pile of shame, finish it right after the Mirage.

Model by Mark Aldrich >> The Hobby Boss vehicle is built OOTB with Decals and markings from SabingaMartin and Stowage from BlackDog and homemade resin cast items.

Model by Mark Aldrich >> 1/35 Academy I.D.F. M113 Fitter
This is a hodge-podge build of the kit parts, Verlinden, Sprue, Styrene, mesh, PE, spares, and AFV Club track thrown in for good measure. It is marked and painted to represent a vehicle serving with the IDF circa 1985.
