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

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 was remarkably we[...]

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 start w[...]

Cold War Gone Hot – The Venlo Counter Strike

I decided to have a change of pace just lately. This is the Mini-art Dutch house. I've always been a great fan of some of the "Cold War gone hot" books such as Gen. "Shan" Hacketts "Third World War" and "Third World War - The Untold Story". I'm[...]

Takom 1/35 Chieftain Mk10 Track Bash

Well here's the latest instalment of the work on my Chieftain Mk10. I've put together and weathered the tracks before final fitting. I used the Vallejo Air acrylic wheel and track set. For the base colour I used Halfords red primer. I then used [...]

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 [...]
