From Manchester UK
I have been modelling on and off for about 20 years
like most guys built planes and tanks as a kid
then did the Family thing settled down had two kids
got on with everyday stuff then slowly got back into the hobby and so here i am today modelling mad with a huge stash that i wont live long enough to build!!,I build mostly Aircraft 1/144 upwards 1/72 is my favourite scale i have built the odd tank,
to be honest my building skills are not great if anything im a bit lazy i tend to rush to get to my favourite part the painting and weathering.
i am a member of the 580 modellers and the Bolton IPMS modellers club, since joining the clubs i have picked up some great new techniques and made some great new mates
Hi All, Another oldie i built this last year its the Revell (X MPM) Meteor F4 or as we brits call
it The Meat Box.
Not a bad kit, nice surface detail the cockpit isn't great but a perfect candidate for fitting the Eduard Zoom Etch which i did[...]
This build is from quite some time ago and its one of my rare jaunts over to 1/48
its the Trumpeter kit and it is a really nice bit of plastic to say the least, detail is top notch
the cockpit in my opinion doesn't need anything like a[...]
Hi All, Here is my little survivor its been to nearly all last seasons Model Shows and its had various bits glued back on at some point including the tail section a good few times one wing and the undercarriage hence the slightly wonky stance,
Hi All, This is one of my most recent builds its the New Tool Airfix 1/72 Lightning F2A.
I must say it was a pleasure to build pretty much went together flawlessly the only little niggle was the inserts in the nose for the gun openings these we[...]
Hi All, Here is one of my 1/72 Hobby Boss quick builds this time it the FW190-Dora,
This time i thought i would try something a little different so i posed it just as its taken off and the undercarriage on its way up.
A great little kit the onl[...]
Airfix's Little Gem, This is a really neat little kit no vices at all, the only thing that is a little odd is one of the joint/panel lines on the underside is slightly wide and there's not a lot you can do about it as it is on a natural panel li[...]
Eduard's Great little 1/144 262 this was my second go at a brail scale model, my first wasn't that great i bought one of the re-released Revell Mini Wings kits for a pound it was the
Fw190 started to build it and promptly lost the prop so binn[...]
Hi All, This is the Dragon HE219 A-7
basically a Great Model, I only had one or two fit issues but i think they were of my own doing.
The one thing that wasn't great that was out of my control was that the panel lines on the the top of the f[...]
Hi All, Here's another of my early efforts this is probably one of only a hand full of kits since being a kid that i have built as soon as i picked one up and got it home great little kit i think the only let down is the under sized prop,which i[...]
Hi All, me again, well i dug the little camera out and did some snaps they are not all as clear as i would like them to be and some are clearer than i would like you know what they say about the camera it never lies well actually it can but that[...]
