I’m a 40 and a bit year old Police Sergeant in Christchurch, New Zealand. Prior to this I served as a medic in the Royal New Zealand Air Force. I have 3 daughters, and I’ve been modelling since I was about 6 years old. I inherited my interest from spending time with my father in his model shed. I mainly do Armor, but will do whatever grabs my attention, as sometimes its good just to have a bit of fun.

IBG 1/35 Quad Bofors anti-aircraft gun tractor

My 2nd (and less stressful) IBG build. This kit went togerher very nicely compared to the Otter kit. This is a good size truck and will go nicely with the Bronco Bofor anti-aircraft gun kit when I finally get it. […]

IBG 1/35 Otter light reconnaissance car

This was my first time making a kit from IBG, and nearly my last! Although I got there in the end, the molding of the kit was slightly warped so when you came to putting the body together you needed […]

Casualty Evacuation

My last post was a Tamiya French Armoured carrier UE done in German markings, and again ive converted a 2nd one into captured German markings for a field ambulance. Its a great simple wee kit that is very versatile. The […]

Captured French Armoured Carrier UE

This is the Tamiya 1/35 French Armoured Carrier UE and German Pak 37. I was looking at some random tank pictures and stumbled over one of a captured French Armoured Carrier UE with a Pak 37 mounted on it. I […]

SNIPER FIRE

This is the Acadamy Ontos (which is Latin for ‘the thing’ – & was affectionately refered to by the Marines as ‘the pig’) with HobbyFan USMC figures. The base is MiniArt. The Ontos was a cool build but has zero […]

Vietnam River Crossing *Updated*

Tamiya 1/35 M48 Patton. Just finished this week. I was inspired by a photo I saw of a Patton crossing a very deep river, but modelling water scared me! Was recommended to use Woodlands Scenic Real Water so crossed my […]

Wallace & Gromit; and the curse of the were rabbit.

This was an Airfix kit I got some years ago “for my daughter”. It’s about 1/16th scale I’d guess. Something fun and different to build. Had to convert Wallace from standing to sitting and added some carrots from my daughters […]

WW1 Model-T Ford Ambulance, Western Front 1918

ICM 1/35 scale with Master box figures. Nice simple little kit that was fun to build. Well except for the decals! Not sure if I just got a bad bunch but they were a nightmare to apply. As soon as […]

“Covering Fire!”

This is a Tamiya M113 kit I built about 5 years ago. I added a Recoilless rifle off an old Dragon Mule kit and after market accessories from Black Dog and Verlinden. The figures are from Bravo 6 (resin), and […]

Any landing you walk away from is a good one….

This is the 1/48 Eduard French Nieuport Ni-11, my first ever Bi-Plane, and last completed build of 2016. I have always wanted to build a WW1 Bi-Plane but never got around to it until now. Its from the box (with […]
