1/350 HMVS Cerberus – Kombrig

by Paul Carpenter on November 18, 2017 in Ships -- 8 Comments

This is one of my favourite models. A simple thing but deeply satisfying to find a relatively obscure subject done so well by the manufacturer. There were lots of little scratch building projects all over this kit such as the […]

Model of the Month winner – September

by Paul Carpenter on November 8, 2017 in Uncategorized -- 18 Comments

Hi all – I had a couple of surprises today – one good and one not so good… Tore my calf muscle while exercising today – not much fun – but came home to find my prize for September’s iModeler […]

Knights large and small!

by Paul Carpenter on November 4, 2017 in Figures -- 10 Comments

Hi all My real fascination with models lies with figures. Figures really bring a model to life (and of course, if not done well can make a great model seem second rate…we have all probably seen some very nice aircraft […]

Knight circa 1300

by Paul Carpenter on October 26, 2017 in Uncategorized -- 12 Comments

Hi all, If I am not building biplanes I am probably painting a figure. This is another older work, the Verlinden knight in 120mm scale. Painted in enamels and artist’s oils, I just wanted to do something interesting with some […]

Hi all, This kit is one of the old Eduard molds, re released by Flashback and frankly a pretty rough kit. If you are up for a little challenge, see if you can find one and see how you go! […]

Bandai 1/48 AT-ST

by Paul Carpenter on September 28, 2017 in Sci-fi -- 16 Comments

by Paul Carpenter on September 17, 2017 in Aviation -- 21 Comments

Hello again, This is one of my older builds. I was really keen to build this model and it was my first attempt at aWingnut Wings kit. Rigged with EZ line – I was a bit dubious (and still am) […]

Snipe; Wingnut Wings; Sopwith Snipe

by Paul Carpenter on September 13, 2017 in Aviation -- 24 Comments

Hi all, this is my first post but not my first model! I typically build Australian Flying Corps subjects and so the Snipe was a long awaited addition to my collection. I always like a challenge at the Snipe really […]
