My personal modeling sherpa

My local club, MMCL, is blessed with a number of fantastic modelers.  These guys are some of the best modelers I know.

My personal modeling sherpa is Scott “Skippy” King.  Skip has the traits all good modelers I know have.  Skip doesn’t think that his models are that special.  He is willing to share freely of his modeling techniques.  I have learned more than I could ever say from Skippy.

Below is one of his works in progress.  It is a 72nd scale Hasegawa Buffalo.  He has converted it to a Dutch aircraft.  I love what he has done with the engine.  The photograph below doesn’t do the actual model justice.  One day I hope to do a radial engine half as well.

Buffalo Engine


  1. Nice engine. I really liked Skippy’s Lockheed 212 he had at Cincinnati. It inspired me to finally buy one!

  2. Yep, that 212 was nice. Skippy is working on a collection of Dutch NEI a/c. He has a Hurricane, PBY and the 212 already. The picture doesn’t do the engine of the Buffalo justice.
