Pilot and aviation obsessive. Have loved model making all my life, and delighted to have found this site with so many like minded and talented folks showing off their builds!

I Remade My Oldest Surviving Childhood Model Kit

An old and flawed kit, but one that has a special place in the memory banks for me - when I was 12 we were told we could have a home made mascot on our desks for end of primary school exams. I persuaded my parents to get me a Flying Fortress mod[...]

Cursed F-15C Build

This build was cursed. That is all. Problems were mostly caused by my own clumsiness, not the GWH kit, which in terms of fit and surface detail is fantastic. Dropped the model, breaking a stabiliser and meaning I had to redo the first camo co[...]

Completed Late-War Western Front Fighters Collection (1/48)

This collection has taken around two years to complete due to only having access to a workshop on an irregular basis. Each kit took just under a week. German Fighters: Focke-Wulf Fw 190A-8 Anton Focke-Wulf Fw 190D-9 Dora Messerschmitt Bf 109G-[...]

Wartime Spitfire Mk.XVI Model Build – 1/48 Scale Eduard Kit

I had this Mk.XVI kit after buying it initially to supply parts to my mammoth Mk.XIV high-back Spitfire kit bash project (found here: A relatively straightforward build notwithstanding the usual fiddly nature of Eduard Spitfires - more than mad[...]

Focke-Wulf Fw 190A-8: The Butcher Bird

A straightforward build of Eduard's 1/48 scale FW 190A-8 finished in the colours of Blue 4 of JG.5 stationed at Eismeer in Norway in April of 1945. This model rounds off my late-war Luftwaffe 1/48 scale collection. As ever with modern Eduard [...]

3 Spitfires to make 1: Spitfire Mk.XIVe High-Back Conversion from Eduard and Airfix 1/48 kits

As something of a Coronavirus lockdown special effort, I finally did something I've been thinking about attempting for months and which others including Tom Cleaver have done previously: A Mk.XIV high-back conversion kit bash. I built this Mk.XI[...]

Late War Bf-109G-10 in 1/48 Scale

This is Eduard's ProfiPack series Messerschmitt Bf-109G-10 as built by the Wiener Neustädter Flugzeugwerke (WNF) factory with the enlarged wooden tail. My example has been finished as a very late war JG/51 aircraft 'Rosemarie' which was roughly [...]

Clostermann’s Tempest in 1/48

Eduard's excellent but slightly tricky-to-build quarter scale Hawker Tempest Mk.V finished as Pierre Clostermann's mount at the end of the Second World War. The kit is a bit fiddly by Eduard standards but fit is generally good. The only real d[...]

P-38H made from Tamiya’s new Lightning kit

This is probably the most popular kit released recently and I've finally got around to finishing my build. Went for aftermarket decals because the two markings offered from the box are pretty dull to my eyes. Also has the benefit of being a P-38[...]

USAF Wild Weasel F-16CJ in 1/48

This is a quick three day build of Tamiya's superb quarter scale F-16 series.... I've been meaning to do one for years and finally got around to it - a stunning kit that goes together perfectly. Chose the Tiger Meet markings to add a bit more [...]
