The Work Of Dave Porter

Here is an image of Dave Porter's Testors 1/24 scale Pantera and Minicraft's 1/144 scale Boeing B52-H and Italeri's 1/35 scale Panzer 4 and here in his own words are his descriptions.

Here is the 1/144 B-52H from Minicraft. The kit fit okay but I had to create twenty four antenna to make it look current.

This a better picture of a Testor 1/24 Pantera. I made it into a club racer. The wheels and tires are Fujimi aftermarket. The interior has race harness and fire extinguisher added. The exterior is Tamiya acrylic metallic blue With Testor "one coat" clear applied then polished.

  I have a 1/35 scale Panzer 4 By Italeri. The kit is built from the box. The driver is from Warriors.

Next  is a JU-88G late model night fighter. This was a very high performance aircraft. It's existence is why the HE-219 was cancelled. The model is by Zvezda and is in 1/72 scale. It fit well. I added some Eduard belts and finished the model in Tamiya acrylics.

Next -  Tamiya Brumbarin 1/35 built straight out of box. I finished the model in acrylics, oil paint and pastel dust.
Next we have Trumpeters 1/48 scale Supermarine Spiteful. The replacement for the Spitfire of which it was developed from.
Next is  Monogram's  1/24 scale Cobra racer. Nice model but the wheels could be a bit deeper. I finished the model in lacquer color and clear.
Next  is a multimedia model of a 1975 Greenwood Corvette race car. The kit is mostly resin with a few white metal castings plus a sheet of brass. The car is by Scale Designs and is in 1/25 scale. It is finished in white lacquer. The kit includes decals for "The Spirit Of 76" and some nice looking duct tape. Rock players will know what I'm talking about.
Next we have the Boeing X-32 Strike Fighter candidate that lost to the F-35. This 1/72nd scale kit is from Italeri. It didn't fit well but it's nice
when finished. The paint scheme is a fictitious Ferris design. The aircraft is just too ugly to have it displayed with the landing gear down.
