Hi,I am based in Warrington in the north west of England and usualy build 1/48 scale aircraft ,generaly WW2 and coldwar so from1939 up to around 1975 (ish !),my current main interests are anything Israeli and British fleet air arm. If anyone is interested in swapping information please feel free to get in touch.
I am a 1966 vintage and work in the Chemicals industry which is boring and usualy involves keeping some pretty nasty stuff under lock and key.
I am also a biker and am into the great outdoors, and good old fashioned rock n roll,the louder the better.

F4U-1A Corsair Arii 1/48

Hi all , it's been a while since my last posting but here we are. This is an Arii kit of the brilliant F4U Corsair, it seems strange for me to say that as a lifelong modeller I've never built one of these before in any scale so when I saw it on [...]

GAL Hotspur 1/72 Novo kits

This is the ancient Novo , Frog kit that I picked up for a fiver at a club day last year. I bought it for the RAF centenary G.B. and that is where it first appeared but I always thought it needed to be presented in a more interesting way, the lo[...]

Gloster Meteor F8 1/48 Airfix

Well here we are with another rendition of Airfix's new Meteor this time as you can see in markings for an aircraft flown by the Israeli airforce. It is nice to see another 1/48 Meteor available to us and I must admit to getting a little giddy w[...]

“Brace for impact boys!” Italeri Airspeed Horsa AS 51, 1/72

Some of you may think you have seen this already some years ago ,but this is a different build from the first one which is in my gallery, this version uses aftermarket decals with the rather cool graffiti on the side, sadly the first one had a h[...]

Stephensons Rocket at the MOSI (Manchester U.K.)

I thought some of you may be interested in this, the Museum of science and industry (MOSI) in Manchester has on display "Rocket", for those who aren't familiar with it Rocket was the worlds first commercial steam engine ,designed and built by Ge[...]

Boeing 314 Clipper 1/144

This is another ancient Airfix offering that has been on the "to do" list my whole life, I always loved the graceful lines of this aircraft even as a kid, it somehow oozes art deco,but as a young lad with limited spending money it must have seem[...]

Help needed from Uncle Sam

I know this is a bit off subject (a bit !!) , I have a good friend ,a Limey like myself ,however he is currently residing in the U.S. of A ,Texas to be accurate and has brought me a couple exotic treats on his latest return home, trouble is I ha[...]

Austin K2/Y Ambulance ,Airfix ,1/72

Well at long last I got my second contribution to the Kasserine pass G.B. finished or nearly finished (More on that at the end... ) The Vehicle. Based on the Austin K30 light truck and known affectionately as "Katy" by her crews the K2 had a 6 c[...]

Battle of Kasserine pass G.B. .Valentine tank ,Tamiya 1/35

Here is my first of two contributions to this G.B. , let me start by thanking my (our) friend Dave for putting this together ,it's been fun I'm sure we'll all agree. The kit is Tamiya's new 1/35 Valentine tank and what a great kit it is, the par[...]

Nord 2501 Noratlas 1/72 Heller

Well as always I am good to my word, I said I'd build the kit my peers picked and so here it is and it has not been easy. Because of the way the kit is constructed it is possible to build the fuselage completely before moving on to the wings and[...]
