350th K’tinga battle cruiser.

by Robert Aspinall on December 20, 2016 in Sci-fi -- 17 Comments

I thought I would share my latest project. Its an all resin 350th Klingon K’tinga. The kit was a nightmare to assemble with poorly cast parts, no instructions, base or decals. It took many hours of correction and the addition […]

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 […]

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 -- 14 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 […]

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 […]
