This is a conversion that I did on Revell Monogram’s ’99 Ford F150 Lightning. I used the transfer case from the Lindberg F150 and custom built the drive shaft.
I also switched the axles, putting the front axle in the rear and the rear axle in the front. The wheels are from the Aoshima Toyota hi-lift series kits.

Robert MacNamara built this 1/48 Tamiya mosquito. He Used RAF Ocean Gray for the fuselage and RAF Medium Sea Gray for the bottom.
The de Havilland Mosquito was a British twin-engined, shoulder-winged, multirole combat aircraft introduced during the Second World War. It was nicknamed the “Wooden Wonder” or “Mossie” because its frame was constructed mostly of wood.
The Mosquito’s use evolved during the war into many roles, including low- to medium-altitude daytime tactical bomber, high-altitude night bomber, pathfinder, day or night fighter, fighter-bomber, intruder, maritime strike, and photo-reconnaissance aircraft.
Hub Hobby’s original building on Broad St in New Orleans has been demolished. Word of it being torn down spread like wildfire.
One of our customers, Jim Letten, was emailed by his friend Martin about the demolition of their childhood hang-out.
The subject line was: ROSEBUD
“Rosebud” was the dying word spoken by Orson Welles in the movie Citizen Kane: a reference to his childhood sled – the symbol of memories of youthful innocence.
