Bandits at 8 o’clock!

Air Marshal Jon Hall (Jon Hall18) remains ever vigilant to keep the skies of your home prefecture clear of enemy warbirds. The A-37B Marauder is the latest weapon in the never ending war against Eurasia or is it East Asia?…I always forget. For you purists in the audience giving that camouflage the disapproving skunk-eye, you can rest easy, the builder claims the effect was achieved by cutting up only the most official decals available from our Danish overlords.

Tuesday morning tiff: Nate DeCastro vs. Jon Hall

For understandable real-world reasons, last week was a bit of a slow LEGO week, so I’m not surprised Keith didn’t get a chance to do a second “Friday Night Fight.” When I got caught up on LEGO and encountered this sky-fi fighter, I thought to myself, “Ah, excellent — Jon Hall has built another gorgeous plane.”

Except that this P-64 Dragonfly is actually by Nate DeCastro! Nate’s fighter sports an Octan color scheme and a rain-specked canopy effect added in post-production. The blur on the tail is also a nice touch.

Of course, Jon Hall himself has indeed built another gorgeous plane. His T-68 Banshee includes round bricks embedded in arches and classic World War II livery.

Fantastic Aircraft Models by Sydag

I was looking through flickr user’s Sydag’s new aircraft models earlier, and was shocked to discover that we’ve never featured any of his stunning airplanes here before. Sydag has been building some of the best small aircraft to be found, including this latest pair of Hawker Sea Furies, decked out for the Reno Air Races. Be sure to check out the other photos of them, as Sydag’s included lots of terrific details like folding wings and a de-cowled version.

Furies Unleashed

While I’d love to highlight all of his planes, this lovely version of Porco Rosso’s plane from Miyazaki’s film grabbed my attention in particular. It looks spot on, and the display is wonderful.

Skull Fighter

Well this has to be one of the most unique things that I have seen in a long time! But really can we expect anything less from Bartosz Kacprzyk (oneman)???

Skull Fighter

That skull is so whimsical, and combined with the checker pattern on the fuselage…just absolutely lovely!!! I can totally picture this buzzing around the screen of a Tim Burton film!
