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.

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

Here are a few photos of my final builds for the year (not strictly true but I cant show you the very last one yet!) which are the Airfix 1:48 Sea Fury and the Airfix 1:48 Gloster Meteor FR.9. The Sea Fury has the Barracuda wheels and cockpit p[...]

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

This is Eduard's Spitfire IX in 1:72 which I've just finished for Model Airplane International Magazine. A superb kit, detail is amazing but definitely not a beginners kit, despite its tiny size. Eduard have crammed an amazing amount of detail i[...]

Eduard Me 109F-2

This is the Eduard Me109F-2 in 1:48 built by me for Model Airplane International magazine where it will be feature soon. This is a very good kit, loads of detail in it especially in this, the Profipack version. Its perhaps not quite as good as t[...]

Airfix Stuka 1:48

Here are a few photos of my Airfix Ju87 B-2/R, this is the new version of the Airfix kit which I have built for Airfix Model World Magazine and its featured in this month's (April) edition. This is a lovely kit, very easy to build with a lot of [...]
