Plastic Scale Modeller since 1983. I prefer 1:48 scale, WW2 “prop-jobs”, but will build anything interesting. Dabbling in 1:72 scale WW2 Dioramas. Also build 1:12 scale & up R/C WW2 airplanes.

2001 Corvette Z06

My most recent Automotive Build was the 2001 Corvette Z06. This kit was almost tossed away in the trash bin, as when I first bought it, I attempted to brush paint it in Metallic Blue Sapphire, which was a disaster to say the least. Then I learn[...]

1985 Pontiac Fiero (Targa Mod)

Bf 109 F-2/4

Not my favorite WW2 plane, but for sure some of my best work as of lately. Build took suprisingly little time, about a week. Have a video to go with these photos of the installed micro motor spinning the prop, but don't know how or where to upl[...]
