Hi folks!
For those of you who don’t know me, I’m from Newcastle upon Tyne and have been an iModeler member since 2013.
I’m a chef by trade, which drastically cuts into my modelling time! Looking forward to retirement now though, just 32 years to go!

Kawasaki ZX-RR

Hello again! This is Kawasaki's attempt at a Moto GP bike, boasting their famous 'Ninja' branding. I think this bike is from the 2006 season, so will have a 998cc engine and will generate round the 240bhp mark. The kit is a Tamiya 1/12, and is[...]

Sea Harrier FRS.1

Evening all. It's lucky you are seeing this build because it went in the bin twice! It is a Tamiya 1/48 rendition of the famous jump jet, and also my favourite aircraft of all time. I bought this at last years Northern model show for about a te[...]

Farewell Tornado

Hi folks. Just finished this one, the recently retired Panavia Tornado. This variant is the F.3 ADV, used in air superiority roles. For those of you unfamiliar, the Tornado was the RAF flagship fast jet replaced by the Eurofighter project, ulti[...]

Subaru Imprezza WRC ’99

Hi folks! It has been a while! I started working away again at the end of last summer, so didn't get much build time through the autumn and winter. Our hotel had to close though due to recent events, and I am currently furloughed back home. Tryi[...]

Mig-29M

Hi folks, hope you all are well! Here is my latest build, the Mig 29M. It is a modern variant of the earlier 29 and is often referred to as the Mig-33, although I have no idea why.... The 29M features a number of upgrades to the electronics and[...]

Yamaha YZF R1M

Hi again folks, I've got another motorcycle here for you. The R1M! I do have a soft spot for Yamaha bikes. I've been lucky enough now to have owned three. I've owned an R6, and two R1's. And I've never crashed a Yamaha neither, so I consider th[...]

Repsol Honda RC213V

Hi Folks. It's almost Easter, so Happy Easter if that's your thing. I personally just like the chocolate. This is the fairly recent Tamiya 1/12 kit of the 2014 MotoGP championship winning bike, rode by Marc Marquez. Marquez won the Moto 2 cham[...]

Toyota GT-One TS020

Hello imodellers! Thanks for dropping by! Here is my latest disasterpiece, the Toyota GT-One. It is an older Tamiya kit in 1/24 scale. If you are an automotive fan and haven't yet built one of the older Le Mans kits I would highly recommend it.[...]

Fairchild Republic A-10

Merry Xmas! Well it's nearly Xmas anyway so I'll get it out the way.... This is my last build for the year, the Hobby Boss 1/48 A-10 Thunderbolt II. Or at least that's what it says on the box, the aeroplane goes by a few different nicknames I be[...]

Grumman-Mercedes X-29

How to use up your old car and bike decals... Buy the cheapest 1/72 kit from your local shop, then put your own stamp on it. This is the NASA X-29 air racer! Based on the legend of the Sauber Mercedes silver arrows. Maybe this could be a future[...]
