Arma Hobby 1/72 Hurricane Mk1

Hi There, Well, believe it or not, this is the first Hurricane I've ever built. Built being a loose term for my attempts When this arrived in December 2018 the wee man asked me if we could build it with this particular scheme.This build also [...]

Airfix 1/72 Dakota – D-Day Doll

Hi There, So, last year when the Dakotas were at Prestwick I took a run through on the Saturday with Innis and his pal on what turned out to be a particulary typical Scottish summer day. We were able to get on board D-Day Doll which for me was [...]

Amusing Hobby 1/48 Focke Wulf Triebflügel – Red Skull’s Escape

Kovozavody Prostejov 1/72 Iljušin IL-2M “Černá smrt”

Hi There, This one was for me and I think I bit off a lot more than I can chew at the moment. Having been reading the marvellous "Red Star Against the Swastika" by Vasily B. Emelianenko and having received this kit whilst finishing the book[...]

Turkish Tigermeet Revell 1/72 F-16

Hi There, This was built as a surprise for Innis when he returns from his holiday. It was painted with Tamiya Acrylics and the transfers were Model Alliance Arctic Tigers. The seat belts and bang handle were scratched. The belts are a tad o[...]

Merit 1/35 x-Craft

Hi There, Whilst Innis and I were building his Mustang, I was building this as a side project for myself. I didn't mean to get right into it but after taking it in to work on a Sunday evening to drill out the flood holes it got the better of[...]
