I've been model making as long as I can remember! I started with the good ol' Airfix aircraft and moved on from there. I now make armour as well as aircraft, with the occasional submarine (if it has internal detail!) thrown in. I'm based in the UK, but I do travel if I can. Sadly, this isn't very much due to my health. I'll post some pics of my work when I can

Cold War gone hot Tamiya 1/35 Schutzenpanzer Marder

Here's another vehicle for my Cold War gone hot series. This is the 1/35th Tamiya Marder. Sadly, this old kit is the only early version Marder available, all the others being post 1985. The kit will be depicted rushing past the M48A2GA2 as [...]

Cold War gone Hot, M48A2GA2

Here's another vehicle for my "Cold War gone hot" series. This is the Revell 1/35th M48A2GA2. The major construction is now done and I've started the weathering. I've added a small amount of battle damage on the front left side [...]

Schutzenpanzer Marder 1

This vehicle is going to form part of my "Cold War Gone Hot" series of diorama's. It's the old Tamiya Marder that I used in the camnet construction series. I've weathered down the original gloss tone to a more realistic matt [...]

UFO Interceptor

With the weather here being so bad and SWMBO (She Who Must Be Obeyed) banning any plastic modelling in the house, I decided to do something completely different. I've never modelled using card kits before so I decided to have a go at one. [...]

Camnet Construction continued...

Well, I left you having glued on the surgical gauze to your vehicle. Then I got carried away and finished off the two tanks and didn't photograph the process! So I'm continuing with a Schutzenpanzer Marder. Having added the gauze I then [...]

1/35 Camouflage Nets

I hope that this might be of help to some of our group and that I am not "teaching my grandmother how to suck eggs!" I've been trying for a while to find what I think is a better way of adding camouflage nets (camnets) for my [...]

Leopard 1 A1A1 With Peddinghaus Turret

This is another stalled project that I'm tidying up before re-commencing work on it. The base kit is the Revell 1 A5 (new mould) with the turret replaced by a Peddinghaus 1 A1A1 turret. I'm going to take the B&V armour from the 1 A5, [...]

Revell Leopard 1 A1A4 Weathering And Camnet

This is the (very) old mould Revell Leopard 1. There is a review of it on the Leopard Club website. Needless to say, it is a tad dated by modern standards! This was my first attempt at using a pencil for the worn metal effect, I think I [...]

Trying New Techniques On Tamiya Leopard A3/A4

I decided to try out a few new (to me at least) techniques. I'm trying to get a metallic sheen to weathered parts of the tank and equipment. I've not done this using a pencil before and I think it's far more controllable than just straight [...]

Unexpected Progress Vulcan B1 Conversion

Well, sometime things just seem to fall together! I thought that I had done my lot for today working out how to sort out the bombay/Blue Steel issue, when a little tinkering and the next thing you know, four happy hours have gone past. [...]
