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!

Bostwick’s colourful P-47M Thunderbolt (1/48 scale

A 1/48 scale Tamiya kit build of Major George Bostwick's extremely colourful P-47M 'Hotrod' Thunderbolt as it was in mid-1945 after shooting down a Messerschmitt Me-262A jet. To celebrate this feat, it was marked with the addition of a black cow[...]

1st Attempt at the F-22 Raptor

Hi all, This is my first try at replicating the truely unique grey-with-underlying-metal look of the awesome US Air Force F-22 Raptor stealth fighter. Build video attached as ever:

Full Battle of Britain fighter stable finished!

Seven months back I build Tamiya's new release Spitfire Mk.1 and decided to do one of each of the fighters used in the Battle of Britain in 1/48 scale. With the Bf 109E-3 I posted about yesterday, the collection is finished! Little video prese[...]

Josef Priller’s Bf 109E-3 in 1/48

My attempt at the very unusual field resprayed scheme worn by JG.51's Josef Priller's Messerschmitt Bf 109E-3 during the Battle of Britain. This one is a nightmare to do freehand but is very satisfying in the end. Build video here:

Unusual Battle of Britain Hurricane in 1/48, Airfix kit

Nearing the end of my Battle of Britain fighters collection in 1/48, I picked up Airfix's new tool Hurricane but could only get hold of the Tropical version. The kit allows you to build a Mk.1 but needed custom decals so bought an Xtradecals she[...]

GWH’s new 1/48 Su-35 ‘Flanker-E’ – The Russian Beasty

This is my (somewhat late due to box and kit complexity intimidation) attempt at GWH's new and monstrous Sukhoi Su-35S 'Flanker-E' in 1/48th Scale. With the characteristic metal heat staining, subtle three tone camo scheme and huge armament this[...]

264 Squadron Boulton-Paul Defiant in 1/48 (Battle of Britain day scheme)

Hi all, This is my lash up of the relatively new tool Airfix quarter scale Defiant. Tried a heavy post-shade then comprehensive highlighting coat technique with freehand camo. All feedback welcome as ever! :-) Full build video here:

Messerschmitt Bf 109E-4 in 1/48 from Eduard

I've been putting this kit off for a while until I felt calm enough to do the freehand mottling scheme required by these early Emils. I reckon she looks great next to the recent Battle of Britain Spitfire by Tamiya...reminds one just how small[...]

‘Rasberry Ripple’ ETPS Hawker Hunter in 1/48 (Academy)

Hi all, Had a crack at the limited edition Academy 1/48th scale Hawker Hunter release over the weekend... didn't really like the schemes out of the box and have been wanting to do an Empire Test Pilot School (ETPS) 'Rasberry Ripple' scheme on a[...]

Happy New Year, Happy New Tool Spitfire! Tamiya’s new Mk.Ia built…

A new Spitfire for the New Year! I'm sure many of you have been looking at Tamiya's new release and new tool Supermarine Spitfire Mk.1 in 1:48 scale. Here follows my two cents having built it over the last few days of the Christmas break: Thi[...]
