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.

1:16 Model Airways Sopwith Camel F.1: Top Wing

by Rob Pollock on July 21, 2017 in Aviation -- 7 Comments

The individual sections of this build are complex and, as with the all-metal engine (with air-screw) recently, I’m only posting completed sections, to avoid it spooling into a never-ending WiP. This is the top wing completed, with the exception of […]

Sopwith Camel F.1 – Working with Wood

by Rob Pollock on July 6, 2017 in Aviation -- 22 Comments

I hadn’t thought I’d be posting any updates so soon, but the airscrew came together rather quickly so I decided to add a few images. The details in the book/plans aren’t a 1:1 version so I had to find old […]
