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!

T-72

Hola from the Spain! This is the Meng 1/35 kit of the T-72. I built it at sea last year and sprayed it back on land on my leave. I finished it early February, but was a bit reluctant to post it with current global affairs. But without any [...]

H2R

Hi folks! Here is my 1/9 scale Kawasaki H2R Ninja from Meng models. I chose the pre painted version of the kit for something to put together at work. As some of you already know, I spend a lot of time at sea and don’t have access to an [...]

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, [...]

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 [...]

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, [...]

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 [...]

Mig-29M
