I live in Norfolk, England. I’m a member of the IPMS-affiliated Norfolk Scale Model Group in Norwich, and we take part in various regional and national exhibitions throughout the year. You can find us on Facebook, at

My modelling interests centred originally around aircraft, but other projects include armour, civilian vehicles, figures, ships and dioramas, and these have achieved gold-medal standards at the British Nationals and other regional exhibitions.

I’ve had a few projects featured in photo galleries on Cybermodeler, Armorama, and Aeroscale, but find I’m never really satisfied with a completed model, and so keep building in hope of achieving that elusive ‘perfect model’.

I enjoy looking at the work of other modellers, for inspiration.

Sopwith Camel F.1 – Finals

by Rob Pollock on September 6, 2017 in Aviation -- 19 Comments

The snub-nosed, pugnacious look of this aircraft is instantly recognisable as a Sopwith Camel. I’ve previously posted Headline articles relating to significant sections of this project, a 1/16 model from Model Airways, because of the detail and complexity of these […]

This is the final instalment of the 1:16 Sopwith Camel F1 build sequence. The remaining work is with the main and cabane struts, upper plane and rigging, so the next time I post (all being well) it will be to […]

1:16 Sopwith Camel F.1 – Fuselage

by Rob Pollock on August 28, 2017 in Aviation -- 24 Comments

Arguably the most difficult and complex part of the build to date, the fuselage is now complete, with the exception of the cockpit coaming, which is added at a later stage. As with the wings, the structure was built up […]
