One of Trumpeter’s early offerings was the Swedish S Tank: the Srv 103B. This is my first go at doing a tank in 1/35th, and I elected to choose one of my all time favourites to start my foray into […]

A UK expatriate now settled in Australia & living in Brisbane’s Northern Suburbs.
I mostly build 1/48 scale aircraft, though I am known to take diversionary strolls into the one true scale (1/72) & build the odd 1/35th AFV. I returned to the hobby back in the early nineties when a mate from work sold me some of his old kits. I went on to build intermittently (read once in a blue moon) and am now trying to make amends.
Eduard’s diminutive 1/72 Albatros D.V with markings from Jasta 12, from the summer of 1917 This is Eduard’s non profi-pack offering from 2000, a no thrills basic kit that looked pretty nice in the box. This was built for my […]
The Dragon 1/48 Fw190D-9 with a slightly different scheme than normal! A Dora under the Red Star: This model depicts one of a number operated by the Soviet Red Army out of Marienburg, East Prussia from the Spring of 1945. […]
The Mirage Hobby’s 1/48 PZL P-11c which I built about five years ago. This was Poland’s standard day fighter in the September Campaign of 1939, and is a pretty iconic aircraft for anyone interested in Polish aviation. The markings are […]
My first completed project for 2015 is Eduard’s 1/48 Yak-3. The markings are for Yellow 15 flown by Semion Rogow, 1st Guard’s Division in 1945. It’s one of the early Profi Pack editions dating back to the late nineties, & […]
Getting in my last one before 2014 is over, is a project I completed about this time last year: ICM’s Yak-9DD, finished in the scheme of the “Warsaw” fighter regiment circa April 1945 and piloted by one A Matveev. In […]
The C-1 was the low to medium altitude version of the Ta 152 and in all probability, according to the available references never got to full flying prototype stage. This project is a bit of a “what-if” and has been […]
An interesting if somewhat futile exercise in kitbashing a Supermarine Seafire XV: This was made from the leftover wings from my Airfix Supermarine Seafire XVII and grafting it onto the modified fuselage of Airfix’s Supermarine Spitfire XII; plus resin casting […]
The Eduard 1/48 Messerschmitt Bf 108, completed back in late 2013 & continuing my theme of Polish operated aircraft. The kit is finished to represent the markings of the “Central Staff of the Aviation League” operated by the nascent communist […]
Hi, this is my 1/48 RWD-8 from Mirage Hobby. For those unfamiliar with pre-war Polish aviation this was their standard training & liaison aircraft, & was also very popular with aero-clubs as well. The kit is the old Sponja offering […]
