I’m a ‘born again’ modeller, returning to modelling in my 40’s. I build mostly aircraft but I do some armour also. Most of my work is for magazines these days.

Battle of Britain Hurricanes

Finally finished the next models for my Model Airplane International Battle of Britain series, a pair of 1:48 Airfix Hurricanes. A lot of research went into P2923 and a big thanks must got Mark Postlethwaite for the a photo of this aircraft whic[...]

Airfix 1:48 Spitfire Mk.XIV

Here is my newly completed Airfix Mk.XIV Spitfire. With the new kit coming out, I decided to re-do the John Wilkinson Spitfire I built a few years back when John was still alive. This is the model I always wanted to build but the 1:72 Sword kit [...]

Airfix Ju87 Stuka from the Battle of Britain (1:48 scale)

This is part two of my new series on the Battle of Britain (which has just started with part 1 - the Spitfire - in the new edition of Model Airplane International, out now). This is the superb Airfix Ju87 B-1 Stuka, built as an aircraft from 7.[...]

Roundup of recent builds

Well, I realised that I hadn't uploaded my last few builds so here is what I've been working on. First up we have the new Tamiya Spitfire in 1:48. A great kit despite the errors in it. This will be featured in a new series in Model Airplane Inte[...]

Airfix Mustang and Eduard Typhoon 48 scale builds

I've just finished shooting the photos for these two builds which will be featured in Model Airplane International soon. They are the Airfix Mustang and Eduard Typhoon, both in 1:48. The Mustang has the excellent Eduard gun bay set in one of the[...]

Final builds of the year – Airfix Sea Fury and Meteor FR9

The new Airfix 1:48 Bristol Blenheim

Well, here it is at last, the new Airfix Blenheim. This is built from a pre-production kit and the model will be featured soon in a new publication from Wingleader books (www.wingleader.com). The model is based on the research I did for my book [...]

Airfix Me262B

Here are a few photos of the new Airfix Me262B in 1:72 which I built for Airfix Model World recently. This is a lovely little kit which as you can see, builds up into a pretty great looking 262. This was out-the-box save for some Eduard seatbelt[...]

Eduard Spitfire IX

Following on from the closeup photos yesterday where I posted a couple of photos of this Spitfire, here are some more conventional shots. This is Eduard's Spitfire IX in 1:48, a superb kit and a joy to build. This one is for Model Airplane Inter[...]

Extreme Closeups

Among the very nice comments I have received from imodeler members over the years I have been uploading pictures of my builds, I have been asked on a number of occasions if I could post some closeup photos of the models. So tonight I have shot s[...]
