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 Mk.1 completed.

In my second post today, here are some photos of my Eduard 1:48 Spitfire Mk1, built as GR-U, N3290 as it was on the 23 May 1940 just before being shot down whilst on evening patrol over Dunkirk. F/O Gillies was taken prisoner. This will be featu[...]

The new Airfix Sabre

This is the new Airfix Sabre in 1:48 scale which I've just built and is featured in the current issue of Airfix Model World Magazine. This was a great kit to build, plenty of detail in it and it all fits well. The markings will be one of the kit[...]

Tamiya Toyota TS050 LMP1 car in 1:24

After finishing the Hurricanes for the MAI Battle of Britain series earlier in the year, I decided I needed a bit of time off from model making and to do a few different builds. So - having completed a Fujimi Lamborghini for my son, I decided to[...]

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 [...]

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

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 [...]
