I am based in Cambridgeshire and supply highly detailed, museum quality replica scale models focusing on WWI & WWII subjects. Although I build a wide variety of model kits, I specialise in World War II military aircraft in 1/72, 1/48 and 1/32 scale.
You can commission your favourite model aircraft that will take you on a historical journey and could be your own personal tribute to the legendary airmen that took to the skies!

Accuracy and authenticity are paramount and the history behind every scale model is fully researched prior to construction, or you can specify your own markings and choose the level of detail to suit your budget. I strive to build to the highest standards so quality and attention to detail are not sacrificed in any way. I can also supply custom made presentation bases to your specifications.

I believe my pricing is very competetive and will be happy to provide you with an estimate according to your requirements. Please contact me if you would like any further details or to discuss a commission.

Take some time look at recent examples featured here or in my Behance portfolio

Fairey Barracuda, 1:48 Special Hobby

This was a commission build for a client who creates amazing photo-composite work. You don't see many of these built, and I'm not surprised as it's a b***h of a kit in places! My client wanted a wheels-up configuration, which the kit does not in[...]

Feeling very Hornisse!

Picked up my prize today and VERY pleased I am too! Thanks again for the nomination guys!

PCM Hawker Hurricane Mk1 (Fabric Wing), No1 Sqn JX-C, France 1939…

This is the PCM 1:32 early Hurricane Mk1 in the markings of Flg/Off Paul Richey of No1 Sqn, France 1939. Finally after 18 months of mucking about with this, she's complete! I just couldn't get into modelling for a good while but got inspired aga[...]

Classic Airframes 1:48: Boulton Paul Defiant Mk1, Hornchurch, 1940

The build: I was never happy with the finish on this one so went for a complete respray as the real aircraft had a roughly applied demarcation line between upper/lower paint scheme on fuselage. Re-done weathering and added antennae wire. I open[...]

Junkers Ju 87B-2 (Hasegawa 1:48)

Representing a Stuka of 2./St.G 77 based in Caen, France during August 1940 I have always been fascinated by the Stuka, especially those of the Battle of Britain period, and have wanted to build one for a long time but was never really sure wha[...]

Messerschmitt Me109E-3, ‘White 8′, (Eduard 1:32)

Another commission build this time for a client in Germany. The 'White 8' markings are fictitious by request and reflects his interest in online flight simming-'White 8' being his online markings. The kit can be tricky in places and I opted to r[...]

Supermarine Spitfire MkIXC, 601 Sqn (Tamiya 1:32)

This was a commission build for a friend. The markings are 601 Sqn but are fictitious as per the aircraft he flies online. The Tamiya kit is an absolute pleasure to build and features a beautifully detailed Merlin 60 engine set to which I added [...]

Supermarine Spitfire Mk1 ‘LO-B, 602Sqn, 1940 (Tamiya 1:72)

As beautiful as the Spitfire is when its all 'buttoned up', I wanted to depict one stripped down as if in maintenence. This was a real challenge in such a small scale but I think it worked. The base is hand-made from Beech and I used cork padd[...]

Hawker Hurricane MkI, 17 Sqn, Debden 1940 (1:32 Pacific Coast Models)

Hurricane Mk1, N2359, YB*J, flown by P/O Stevens, 17Sqn Debden. This aircraft served with the unit between 6th June and 25th August 1940, when it was passed on to No6 OTU. Unusually for RAF fighters of this period, many in this unit had colourfu[...]

Messerschmitt Bf110E-1 W.Nr.3866 (Eduard 1:48)

Representing W.Nr.3866 Hans Joachim-Jabs, Staffelkapitan 6./ZG76, based at Argos in1941. This was the first type of Bf110E that saw service in the Mediterranean Theatre. Hans Joachim-Jabs succeeded in shooting down 22 aircraft by day and a furt[...]
