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

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. [...]

Avro Vulcan B1 conversion 25/09/21 update

Well, here's the update today (so far!). The Subject of my conversion is Vulcan B1. I thought it was a B1a, but it seems 903 was a B1. Now the bombay I intended to use was the one from the kit. But it turns out that the Blue Steel rode [...]

Avro Vulcan B1a Blue Steel Project.

Well, I just couldn't resist it. Despite loads of Leopard projects piling up, when I decided to restore my other B1a, I just HAD to start another one. This particular one is going to be XA903. This was a B1a that was modified for Blue [...]

Restoration Project, Avro Vulcan B1a

Well, the danger of moving boxes etc in the man cave, you occasionally come across a project you had tucked away in a "safe place" and then forgotten about. This is the Airfix 1/72 Avro Vulcan B2, converted back to a B1a. I used [...]

Unfinished Business – Finishing Off the Belgian Leopard

A few days ago I was sorting through my Leopard stuff and came across a few items of etch and resin. I then realised that they were from my Legend Belgian Leopard conversion. To my horror there was still quite a lot to be done, which I had [...]

Leopard AS1 Engine, Engine Bay and Drivers Compartment Latest Progress

Well, my AS 1 with exposed engine bay and detailed drivers compartment has made some significant progress over the last week. The work started on the engine itself. This is a mini work of art in it's own right, well done PSM. Work is also [...]

Australian Leopard AS1 with drivers and engine compartments.

I've started yet another AS1 Leopard, only this time I am showing the exposed engine compartment - from Perfect Scale Modellbau and the drivers compartment from Leopard Workshop. Both are excellent additions and worth every penny! The [...]

Australian Trials Leopard Tank

One of my Leopard 1A1 (Revell, latest mould) has been re-tasked to a new purpose! I had planned on making one of the two Leopard 1A1's that were rented by Australia for comparative trials against the American M60. The Leopards were named [...]

Airfix 1/72 Wellington Mk 1a/c "R" Robert

Alongside my He111, I'm also making the Airfix new mould kit. I'm going to be doing "R" Robert. I will therefore be building her in the Mk1a configuration. The actual aircraft was recovered from Loch Ness back in the 1980's and [...]

Airfix 1/72 He111 H6 progress

Some time ago (April 2019) I was awarded by iModeler the Airfix 1/72 He 111 H6. At long last I have been able to make some headway with the kit at last! I have some Eduard etch to put inside the fuselage and when she is buttoned up I can [...]
