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 when I can. I’ll post some pics of my work when I can… My cover photo is of a PCM Spitfire MkIX, which won a prize at an art exhibition at Combat Stress a couple of years back

USMC LAV-C Latest Update

Here we go with the update. She's now had more weathering added using AK Interactive NATO weathering set. I might add some more weathering, it's fine balance! She's still gloss to aid the decals settling down. I found the decals responded well [...]

Trumpeter USMC LAV-C

I recently had to spend time away from home, so I took an old "shelf queen" and decided to get some weathering done to move it closer to completion. More images to follow...

Weathering, the Belgian Leopard Conversion Continues

Well, I'm now getting on to my favourite stage of the build, the weathering!! There are still details to add, such as the tubular "thingies" that go on the bottom of the side skirts (can someone please tell me what they are and/or what they do!![...]

Leopard 1A5 Bundeswehr

I "rediscovered" this Meng Leopard in the proverbial "safe place"! At least I had sealed her in a resealable food bag to keep the dust off. She is painted in the NATO tri-colour pattern. I used some spare decals from another Meng 1A5 and added s[...]

A Big Thank You For My Random Prize

Thanks everyone for my random prize, for which I chose the Airfix He 111 H6. I'm going to do it as the torpedo bomber variant. I'll build it alongside the Italeri Zwilling, it should make an interesting comparison! I'll post images. Again, many [...]

Tamiya 1/35th Challengers – Working at getting my own Squadron together!

Here are some images of various Challengers I've built over the years. The Mk1 is the original Tamiya moulding. This has been reissued as the Challenger 1 Mk 3, with a few extra parts over the original. With the side mounted water jerry can hold[...]

Academy 1/35 Warrior ICV

This is another one that's been hiding away in the shed. It's the Academy kit OOB, it's a great build. If memory serves, this is the initial release, before all the up armouring of the Warriors began. I remember seeing some of the trial Warriors[...]

Dragon 1/35 JS-2

I was cleaning out the shed the other day and found this. I made this circa '94, then forgot I had it! It's the very old Dragon kit, the first issue when Dragon kits were very reasonably priced and giving Tamiya a run for their money on quality [...]

AFV Club 1/35 Alvis Scimitar

Lovely little kit I had great fun with this one. At some point I'm going to mount it on a base, so I'm holding off the final weathering. The only thing I don't like are the tracks, I think that they're too flimsy and will perish over time... I h[...]

Tamiya Chieftain Mk5c

Here are images of my Mk5c that I mounted on a diorama. It has had the rear engine deck corrected and a Clansman TUAAM box mounted on the right side of the turret. TUAAM = Tuning Unit Automatic Antenna Matching. The "c" after the Mk5 denotes Cla[...]
