Well here’s a thing – not a race-car, not an ‘exotic’, not even a NASCAR, just a VERY fast limited edition (only 20 units (re)built) of one of the greatest cars you’ve never heard of !! Not going to go […]
Although we now live in New Zealand, I’m still very ‘British’. Got my first kit for my 7th birthday and been building ever since – I’m 52 now.
Occasionally I build 1:35 AFV’s, but mainly I build military aircraft of all most era in most scales, as a ‘break’ from aircraft building I also build 1:25/24 NASCAR racers and the occasional (American) car.
Not too much to say. I bought the kit from a UK seller on eBay – because the box was worn & scuffed, it was a steal even with the postage down here to Middle Earth. It arrived on a […]
Another NASCAR build finished today. This one is dedicated to a bloke who is one of the hobby’s ‘good guys’. Couple of years back I posted three NASCAR builds in quick succession over at Britmodeller – Keefr22 was very complimentary […]
Finished this morning: The ‘gold’ one is Revells’ 1999 (slab-side) Chevy Monte Carlo built almost straight from the box, I lowered the ride-height about 1.5mm as I do with all my NASCAR builds. The decals are from Powerslide, printed by […]
Hello folks, back with another vehicle project: This time the excellent Revell ’65 Stepside. No chrome, low-profiles or carbon ceramic discs on this one, just good old sheet steel and skinny cross-plies and brakes the size of milk-bottle tops… …built […]
Hey again… Yep two finishes in as many days – definitely NOT the way I usually roll, but no matter. Kinetic 1:48 Alpha Jet with (outstanding) Wingman decals and no other extras whatsoever. Kit does have some ‘build issues’ most […]
Just finished my Academy M18 Hellcat… Bought as soon as it came out in 1997, started almost as soon as I got it home and finished this morning !! – no I’m not kidding. I used about 30% of the […]
Built in the middle of my P-47 project – I was waiting on some extras from the UK – 90mins to build and a few on-and-off sessions to spray-mask-spray again. Think this one dates from 1972, the decals are from […]
An impulse build after the 1:48 Airfix Spitfire from a month or so ago. Five weeks from cracking the box to what you see here – and yes I know I haven’t painted the sway braces on the pylons and […]
Yep this is the very Airfix 1:48 Spitfire Vb that I won here at iM around two years ago, and only just got around to putting-together… …now I cannot say I enjoyed the build, and I know that sounds ungrateful […]
