Hello modellers!

I've been a modeller since I was basically born. I started off with the traditional Hornby sets and now have a better value with modelling aircraft and warfare subjects. My first kit was of course an Airfix Beaufighter and BF109G Dogfight Doubles, I look back and think to myself how rubbish it looked! But now I see myself as getting involved with proper modelling. I love trying out and exploring an array of subjects during mainly First World War and Second World War as these were the main perspective of warfare, long with future warfares can sometime be of interest. I do sometimes build the odd peace-time subjects like liners and at the minute, one car.

I also have a passion for artwork, mainly aviation, armoured and naval warfare, but also the odd different subjects. The modelling can also help out with my art with certain models. If anyone is interested in getting an original piece of art from me let me know by simply messaging me and letting me know of the order.

Well what really else can I say? Apart from happy modelling guys and good luck with projects!

Mirage Hobby 1/48 PZL.43

The PZL.43 was the export version to the PZL.23, all but two were sent out before the Polish invasion, this being one of them, being shot down and belly landing in a field. Well I can say this reconnaissance aircraft really did give me a [...]

IPMS Bolton 2019

Well my first trip to IPMS Bolton, as well as they're first proper venue so I was told, soon kicked off 2019 in a great format for the travelling modellers! A lot of exhibitors as well as traders to be found both on ground floor and 1st [...]

IPMS Telford 2018

Good evening all, I noticed I hadn't posted on here for a while and thought to share the photos I took whilst at ScaleModelWorld at Telford - hope you all enjoy!

Airfix 1/48 Hawker Hurricane Mk.1

The newly tooled Hurricane is totally perfect and hardly no problems at all. Only issue I found is that the fiddly gun barrels that locate into their compartments go together with a touch of force and a snap. Decals are from cartograph and [...]

Eduard 1/48 Mig-21 MF

As the profipack, the kit comes with extra detail and of course masks. Only problems occurring was a tiny gap in the wing root, flimsy front landing gear and a slight bent nose aerial. Painting was done in Tamiya and Revell paints, both [...]

Eduard 1/48 Albatros D.II

For a challenge, this would be my first First World War subject. As the profi-pack kit, the content comes with masks and detailed photoetch and four marking options. Woodgrain was achieved using Light Orch Oil paint, this was a challenge [...]

Eduard 1/48 Messerschmitt BF109F-4

As part of a review for SAM, the kit is fantastic as always. Although a re-boxing of the G kit, it is a simple and nice kit to build, with plenty of parts and six marking options in total. Nothing is wrong with the kit, however the masking [...]

Eduard 1/32 Messerschmitt BF109E-3

I picked this kit up over a year ago at a model show. Being the profi-pack you get the nice editions Eduard gives you, photoetch, masks and schemes for five Luftwaffe aircraft. The plastic is nice and detailed as always, but noticed one [...]

Airfix 1/48 Boulton Paul Defiant Mk.I

Have to say, I've really enjoyed building my first aircraft for my Battle of Britain Collection both for RAF and Luftwaffe aircraft. Detail is superb and offers a good model for a different RAF aircraft. I first built a defiant when I was [...]

Italeri 1/48 Fiat CR.42 'Falco'

Well, another kit completed, this time, the long term project of the Fiat people voted for. Firstly, I wanted to apologise to everyone who voted for this and wanted this to be completed back a year ago! I just never had the mojo to [...]
