Tamiya 1/48 De Havilland Mosquito PR Mk.IV

Hi There, This kit was given to me by my latest trainee at work after he passed out as a thank-you. This is the first time in over 30 years that this has happened to me and I was very touched by it. Undercoat - Ultimate Primer Grey Paints - Co[...]

Revell 1/72 DHC-6 Twin Otter

Hi There, I picked this up last year for much cheapness and decided to give it a go over my long weekend. Innis advised me that the Sea Plane version was the one to go for so here it is in all it's amateurish glory. I found trying to get th[...]

AZmodel 1/72 DHC-1 Chipmunk T.10 – WP860 – No. 12 AEF Turnhouse

Hi There. One of the reasons I got back into modelling was to build some or all of the aircraft that I was lucky enough to fly in during my time in the Air Cadets. So, here is my first flight and one of the planes that I learned to fly in. WP86[...]

Trumpeter 1/48 De Havilland Sea Vixen F.A.W.2

Hi There, For your delectation and delight I bring you my build of the.... Ahem.... accurate Trumpeter Sea Vixen OOB except fot some tape belts and of course Decals from XtraDecal as the kits ones were very wrong. I got this kit from a well kn[...]

Tamiya 1/72 Fw-190 A3 – Black 27 5th Fighter Regiment “Blackhead” Karabas Company

Hi There, This wee kit almost built itself. ~Everything fitted and only a minor amount of Mr. Dissolved Putty was required for the wing edges. I wasn't certain what the interior cockpit colour should be so went with RLM66. Painted with Colourc[...]

Airfix 1/72 Boulton Paul Defiant Mk1

Hi There, This was purchased in a well-known Edinburgh model shop over a year ago and Innis picked it, so while I was off work awaiting a Covid-19 test result I thought it was about time it was built. Innis decided it would be wheels up...Ye[...]

Airfix 1/72 Tomahawk IIb – Quick Build Experiment

Hi There, Whilst working at my usual glacial pace on another build I decided on Monday to see how quickly I could complete a kit using enamels. This is the result. I have just spent the last two hours trying for the life of me to get the aerial[...]

Revell 1/72 Lancaster B.III. “Dambuster”

Hi There, This was being built in parallel to the Firefox but this one is for the wee man's roof, so wheels up. When I started I thought that the dihedral fix wouldn't make that much of a difference so decided not to bother.....Wrong! Primed w[...]

Вы собираетесь вытащить эти пистолеты или свисток Дикси Vy sobirayetes’ vytashchit’ eti pistolety ili svistok Diksi – Anigrand 1/72 Mig-31 Firefox

This was my surprise present form my son last Christmas. Never having made a resin kit before the very thought of it terrified me because it was a present and if I made a mess of it I wasn't just disappointing myself. So, after doing some inter[...]

I‘ve felt the coldness of my winter – Upon us all, upon us all a little rain must fall – Roden 1/144 Boeing 720 Starship One

Hi There, This just finished. Well, I'm calling it. Many, many years ago...1979 I was a young naive Highlander at College in the big city of Edinburgh and on my first weekend there The Playhouse had a late night Friday showing of:- Pink[...]
