Hi,

My name is Christopher Ellul and I hail from the tiny island of Malta. I am 38 years old and I have been taking scale modelling seriously for the past 5 years, after a 25 year break. This hobby helped me a lot in my professional life, especially since with it I improved my outside the box thinking and finding solutions in my everyday life.
I mainly build 1/72 World War 2 Aircraft dioramas, and since I hail from the ‘Most Bombed Place on Earth’ during the period, my main interest is building aircraft that where present on the island during the said period.
For the past 2 and a half years along with other 6 people I have been taking care of a Facebook page called (Malta Scale Modellers on Facebook), this page had brought together several Maltese scale modellers from different local IPMS clubs, individuals (who do not belong to any club) and people from all over the world practically.

‘Downtime with the Lads’ Flying Officer Adrian (Warby) Warburton DSO DFC

Around this time last summer, I wanted to commemorate one of the greatest pilots to ever grace tiny Malta, with his presence: Flying Officer Adrian Warburton. Now Warby as he was affectionately known, wasn't exactly your usual fighter or bomber[...]
