I am an mechanical engineer by trade, working in the automotive manufacturing sector for a company known globally. This modelling hobby is one of my more stress-free creative outlets, which rewards my love of building and crafting, as well as my curiosity to learn the history and background that can be told about each model subject.

To limit my new kit spending I’ve kept to my choices to 1:48 planes and 1:700 for ships, full hull display. Despite this, the wishlist & stash are growing faster than I can build.

Tamiya F4F-4 Wildcat VF-6 “White 18”

This build is the first of a series of Grumman 'cats that I plan to build in time. The kit is the revered Tamiya offering with the pronounced rivet details. This kit went together exceptionally well, no surprise there. I finished this one a fe[...]

Hasegawa SBD Dauntless 1/48

I suppose this is the right time to post my first official article here. I'd like to present one of my first built a/c since finding time to rediscover the hobby, finished early last year. This is one of Hasegawas 1/48 SBD kits, built with no[...]
