I live in Cape Town, South Africa.
Main modelling interests are Cold War era aircraft – air war over Vietnam in particular and WWII aircraft all in 32nd.

1/32 Tamiya F4U-1D

Italeri 1/32 F104C Starfighter

This is my take on the Italeri F104C as it may have looked while operating out of Udorn, Thailand circa 1967. I did add a resin cockpit and seat plus resin afterburner/exhaust . Kit decals were used and they were excellent.

Bf 109 G-6

Hasegawa BF 109 G6 in 1/32 scale with resin spinner, prop blades, oil cooler and pit.

Fw190 A-8 “Sturmstaffel”

This is the old Hasegawa Fw190 modified to represent a Few 190A-8/RL of IV (Sturm) JG 3 "Udet" circa "44. My friend Rex built the kit and I painted including the addition of the armour plate around the cockpit. The kit was built for an airline pilot.
