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.

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[...]

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[...]

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 [...]

Hurricane Mk IV

Here is my Hurricane Mk IV, this is a 6 Squadron aircraft flown by Bert Newman in late 1944/early 1945. Bert has recently been interviewed by John Mollison and this will appear on Johns website ( oldguysandtheiraeroplanes.com ) soon. Bert was ab[...]

Tamiya F4U-1D 1:32 Scale

Tamiya F4U-1D done. Three months elapsed time, about 120 hours work, and I missed SMW by a week, oh well there's always next year! What a superb kit! This one is being featured in a three part special in MAI (part 1 out now). All the markings on[...]

Eduard Spitfire and Trumpeter Defiant

Here is a double post for you all today. First the Eduard Spitfire VIII, this is simply a superb kit, an utter joy to build and one of my favourite kits so far this year. The same cant be said about the second build, the Trumpeter Defiant, also [...]
