Long time kit builder. Mostly WW2 aircraft.

Westland Whirlwind

Hi, Here is another of my recent builds, the old Airfix Westland Whirlwind in 1/72 scale. This is a "retooling" from the '70's rather than the original kit they produced in the 1960's. Although a simple kit with less than 50 pieces it builds u[...]

ICM Bf 109F-4

Hi, I haven't posted here for a while, but that doesn't mean i have stopped modelling. Here is my recently completed ICM Messerschmitt 109F in 1/48 scale. Not a bad kit but it took some persusading to fit together well. Finished in the colour[...]
