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!

Trumpeter PLAAF Chengdu J-10B

This was a quick build of Trumpeter's 1/48 scale Chengdu J-10B Vigorous Dragon - the Chinese People's Liberation Army Air Force's equivalent to the ubiquitous American F-16 Viper. Cheap, multi-role and increasingly sporting the latest [...]

Tamiya Ki-61 with 'that' colour scheme

This was a quick build of Tamiya's beautifully engineered Ki-61-Id Hien kit in 1/48 scale which I bought on a work trip to Tokyo years ago and have only just got around to building now that lockdowns are over and I can access my workshop [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]

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: https://youtu.be/iGe2aysykQI). A relatively straightforward build notwithstanding the usual fiddly nature [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]
