Tamiya 1/20 Ferrari 312T3

Hi There, This was picked up in Perth at the Scottish Nationals last year with the idea that it could be a test and learning build for the 3 Ebbro kits that I have lying as I want them to be as good as possible. I built this kit in my last sum[...]

Italeri 1/72 Bell AH-1/AB47 – A M*A*S*H Mashup

Hi There, I recently started rewatching M*A*S*H from the start with the movie and then the TV Series. (I've reached Series 5 so far) and got a hankering to try and build one of the helicopters. Most of the research was done on a frame by frame b[...]

Airfix 1/72 English Electric Lightning F.2A – East Fortune Museum of Flight 2019…ish

Hi There, On our last visit to East Fortune Innis absolutely fell in love with the Lightning displayed there. He listened to the audio and looked at her all round and then sat in the Vulcan Ejection seat next to her and just stared lovingly for [...]

Airfix 1/72 Buccaneer S.2C No. 809 NAS

Hi There, I bought this at Scale Scotland Murrayfield last year and have been scared stiff to cut the wings ever since. I finally stuck my courage to the sticking place and got on with it. This one is a little personal as the home base for 809 N[...]

Dragon 1/72 Mistel 5 He-162/Arado E-377a

Hi There, This was started at the same time as the Typhoon and has continued a bit longer being worked on whilst doing my Buccaneer. Three kits in one really. The Trolley and the Arado were little gems that were a joy to build but the Salamander[...]

Airfix 1/72 Hawker Typhoon Ib Starter Kit

Hi there, This one has been sitting in the pile for well over a year and as I was contemplating surgery for the Buccaneer I thought I could build this one for Innis to see if I was capable of cutting out some plastic without it looking too b[...]

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[...]
