Revell 1/144 Airbus A320 Neo.

I have been building this in the background as a wee surprise for a friend who was working at Turnhouse. She was made redundant during the first lockdown but has grown to love Civilian Airlines and is hoping that she will get back there when th[...]

Revell 1/72 Avro Shackleton – WL747 “Florence” 8 Squadron RAF Lossiemouth 1979

This one was personal. We used to get most of our AEF at Lossiemouth when I was in the Cadets and whilst this was mostly Chippie based, one glorious summer Sunday we got a long flight in this Grey Lady. Still one of the most memorable times I ha[...]

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 [...]
