Merry Xmas everyone and a happy new year! This is my first completed build of 2017, Meng’s 1-35 Russian MBT, the T-90. The T-90 replaced the T-72 in 1995 after concerns about it’s poor performance during the 1991 gulf war. […]

Hi folks, I’m in my early thirties and live in Newcastle upon Tyne. I work as a cook offshore in the oil and gas industry. I’m fairly new to the rigs but previously worked as a chef in hotels and restaurants. I’m more than happy to trade cooking secrets for modelling tips!
I like to build most modelling genres although I’m more interested in modern engineering.
I have many other hobbies also. I play guitar and piano and love a bit of heavy metal. I’m keen on motor sports and enjoy driving and riding myself. On the quiet days I like a spot of fishing or a bit of quality time with the Playstation!
Hi folks, this is my first build in the new house. I apologise for the backdrop wallpaper at the minute, I’ll rectify this in time for future photography! The bike is the 2009 Fiat Yamaha team MotoGP championship winning bike […]
Hi again folks, this is the Revell 1/144 kit of the B2 stealth bomber. I had originally planned on building the Testors 1/72 version and bought the kit a couple of years back, but I was a bit put off […]
Hi again folks, this is the Tamiya 1/24 kit of the legendary Ferrari FXX. The car was released for sale in 2005 and is a non road legal track car based on the Enzo. It has a 6.3 litre V12 […]

Last quick build before I go on holiday! This is the British Army special forces version of the Land Rover, as used in Afghanistan. WMIK standing for Weapons Mounted Installation Kit, it features a 12.7mm top mounted Browning heavy machine […]
I’ve decided to abandon the idea of building all my aircraft models in 1/32 for two reasons. Firstly, there are a lot of fantastic kits in smaller scales and also there are certain historically important aircraft which have never been […]
Eventually got the Chinook finished! Thanks very much to everyone who followed the work in progress. This is the 1/35 Trumpeter kit, and is a fair size! It was a Christmas present from Claire, not the last one, the one […]
Here’s a quick build before I go away back to work for the remainder of the month. Apologies again for defacing another classic. The kit was originally the Fujimi 1/24 of the Shelby 427 S/C Cobra. I threw the instruction […]
Hi folks, I’ve finally got the Challenger 2 finished. Considering it was a Xmas present from the one before, not the one just gone, I seem to be a bit behind with my builds! The Mk 1 was a build […]
