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.

Eduard Spitfire Mk1

This is the Eduard 1/48 Spitfire Mk1 which I have recently completed as a commission build for a chap who found me through imodeler! My builds are normally for magazines but Bobby, who commissioned this build, particularly liked my [...]

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 [...]

Airfix 1:48 Spitfire Mk.XIV
