iModeler July Awards.

by Robert Aspinall on August 25, 2016 in Uncategorized -- 8 Comments

I was fortunate enough to have my work selected for the July award. From the excellent selection of kits available as a prize there was only really one contender for me, and that was Eduard’s “Rockin Rhino”. I’m looking forward […]


Tamiya 32nd Zero.

by Robert Aspinall on July 9, 2016 in Aviation -- 13 Comments

I’ve been working on Tamiya’s 32nd scale Zero for a few months now. Generally I enjoyed the build but didn’t appreciate the added complication of the working features. I also struggled with getting the front of the fuselage to line […]


Ferrari F430 Challenge

Fujimi 24th scale kit with modified front end. Splitter and dive planes made from plastic card and Miliput. Eduard etch belts. Thanks for looking, Rob.


iModeler September Awards

Thank you martin and everyone at iModeler. My Random Award Eduard kit arrived this morning and its a cracker. I have a confession; I have never built a 48th scale Spit so I’m looking forward to breaking my duck with […]


100th scale HMS Victory.

by Robert Aspinall on September 18, 2015 in Ships -- 11 Comments

After a long break of several years I have restarted my build of Heller’s monster! I put about five years of work researching and scratch building parts including the ships boats. I’ve put some time in over the past week […]


35th Scale Zundapp K500

by Robert Aspinall on September 9, 2015 in Figures -- 11 Comments

I’ve been tinkering with another long forgotten stash refugee, Vulcan’s Zundapp K500. I made some new cylinder barrels for it and added individual tread blocks because the laminated assembly process wasn’t distinct enough for me. The supplied rider figure wasn’t […]


Hispano Suiza 8Ab 180hp Roden 32nd scale

by Robert Aspinall on August 13, 2015 in Aviation -- 7 Comments

As a break from my Mossie build I thought I would “knock” this together, but you know me. The soft detail and vague fitting made me want to see what I could do with it so break out the wire […]

Mosquito  (00)

24th scale Mosquito

by Robert Aspinall on December 7, 2014 in Aviation -- 12 Comments

I’ve been away a while having started a new job. I’m building this for a friend and its a good kit, would be great if it wasn’t for all the ejector pin marks! I have replaced some of the soft […]


700th scale Ashigara heavy cruiser.

by Robert Aspinall on June 15, 2014 in Ships -- 10 Comments

I built this about four years ago. I bought the Fujimi kit with etch as a change of pace from aircraft modelling intending it to be a quick build OOB. Err no, I got totally immersed in the subject and […]


32nd scale Bugatti 100p

by Robert Aspinall on May 24, 2014 in Aviation -- 19 Comments

I thought that the aviation enthusiasts would like to see something I worked on last year. I was given a set of castings for one of the desktop models produced by J. Lawson Model Makers. They sell finished examples to […]
