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

Takom FV432 Converted To FV432/30

For those who don't know, the FV432/30 was an FV432 converted by adding the turret from the Fox. A lot of people think that it was a Scimitar turret, but that is in fact wrong. The base kit is the Takom FV432 Mk2/1, with the Accurate Armour FV43[...]

Takom Chieftain Mk10 Berlin Bde

This was the final variant of the Chieftain to see service in Berlin before the wall came down. I'm currently working on the wheels, which Takom have moulded the outer set of the tires separately. I'm using the Vallejo Acrylic Wheels and Tracks [...]

Takom Chieftain Mk5c Berlin Bde

She is slowly coming together! I'm at the stage of trying to touch up the camouflage. I've already made a base to mount her on.

Takom 1/35 Canadian C2 Leopard Mexas

This is the Takom kit of the C2 Mexas. I've heard some not too complimentary things about the turret of the Takom kit. As I'm doing another (Meng) C2 but with the thermal cover to the turret and driving area, I decided to "donate" the unused tur[...]

Danish Leopard 1A5DK

This is the Legend Productions conversion kit combined with the Meng Leopard 1 A3/A4 kit. Again, all Danish Leopards came from 1 production variant, but unlike the Australian Leopards, Danish one's were all based on the A4. This is a great conve[...]

Australian Leopard AS1 Dozer

My favourite part is the weathering. This is the AS1 from the Leap of Leopards article I posted in the Armour WIP group. The dozer blade is Mouse House, as is the conversion kit, all mated to a Meng Leopard 1 A3/A4. For those doing the AS1, you [...]

Dutch Leopard 1

Here's the latest with the Dutch Leopard. Now painted in Olive Gelb and sealed in with another gloss coat. Next to add some pin washes and weathering. The kit is the new mould Revell one, which I think is good value for money. I'm using the Leop[...]

Leopard AS 1 Olive Drab Lusterless Update

Images taken 06/05/21. This is my Leopard AS1 in ODL finish with a mud cam pattern. I've replaced both the baskets on the back with newer ones. I'm still getting the hang of brass folding! Not shown is the stowage I'm currently making for it.

Leopard AS1 Aus Cam Update

Here's the latest (as of 06/05/21) of My AS1 3 colour Cam. I've now added some stowage and weathering on the wheels. I'm going to do this one as if it was on the ranges, so red flag and not overly weathered...

Chieftain Berlin Brigade Camouflage Masks

For those of you who are interested in doing this complicated camouflage scheme, here is the web address of the company that makes them. The set is designed around the Takom Mk10, but with some adaptation works just as well on the Mk5, so should[...]
