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.

Ansaldo A.1 Ballila – Progress

Another 1/48 resin kit from Karaya. It’s the little Italian scout A.1 Ballila, which was developed from the ruins of Ansaldo’s SVA project. I’ll add a little more detail in a later post, but thought I’d show a few sections […]
