I build all types of aircraft, but with a special interest in WWII and civil aviation.
I really enjoy building vacform models – I love a challenge and want promote a dying art!
I used to build lots of airliners but had lost a little interest over the last few years. However, I have always loved the MD-11 and when MicroMir released their's in a 1/144th scale injection-molding I decided to have a go at it.
This is very likely to be my last completed model for 2017 - I've been working on it on and off since August and it crossed the finish line this week.
I picked up this classic from Airfix at a model show for a mere £20, and set about building [...]
The latest off the bench is Revell's new 1/32nd Spitfire MkIXc, which as I'm sure you know follows their release from a few years back of a Spitfire MkII and thus the breakdown of the kits is almost identical.
This was a very plea[...]
I picked up this long out of production single-seat Revell 1/32nd MiG-29A cheap recently, and fancied doing a Polish version so also ordered a set of Decals from Techmod.
I built this more or less out of the box, but did close the upper air int[...]
I fancied a quick and easy project and seeing Spitfires overhead daily during the summer months (I'm under the approach to Biggin Hill) I didn't need much inspiration to dig this one out of the attic :)
This model simply fell together and was [...]
I've just finished building this as a mojo-mender as with a few long term projects on the go, I'd become bogged down and in need of something that went together without problems - this 1/32nd scale twin-stick MiG-29UB proved to be just the medic[...]
This is my first completed build for 2016 - the 1/32nd scale Heinkel He 111 P-1 from Revell.
I started this back in the summer of 2015 as a 'pick it up and do a bit as you fancy it' build, and I've been working on it on and off for the last 6 m[...]
Here's my final model completion for 2015 - the new tool Airfix 1/72nd scale Shackleton finished as an AEW2.
I've completed it as Avro Shackleton AEW2, WL747 'Florence', of 8 Squadron, based at RAF Lossiemouth.
"Why not wait for the Revell ki[...]
Here's the latest project to cross the finish line - the 1970's original issue 1/32nd scale Spitfire MkI which has been used as the base kit to produce a Spitfire PRXIX using Grey Matter's conversion set.
I chose the original Revell kit rather [...]
Here's Airfix's 1/48th Merlin, built out of the box with the exception of an Eduard cockpit set.
This was tricker than I had anticipated, with the tolerance between parts being very fine and many pieces needed a quick sanding in order to get a [...]
