I live in Norfolk, England. I’m a member of the IPMS-affiliated Norfolk Scale Model Group in Norwich, and we take part in various regional and national exhibitions throughout the year. You can find us on Facebook, at

My modelling interests centred originally around aircraft, but other projects include armour, civilian vehicles, figures, ships and dioramas, and these have achieved gold-medal standards at the British Nationals and other regional exhibitions.

I’ve had a few projects featured in photo galleries on Cybermodeler, Armorama, and Aeroscale, but find I’m never really satisfied with a completed model, and so keep building in hope of achieving that elusive ‘perfect model’.

I enjoy looking at the work of other modellers, for inspiration.

Nakajima Ki44 Shoki (Tojo)

Here's one of Hasagawa's Tojo subjects in 1/32, with an Eduard Big Ed set. I particularly liked the Eduard detailing for the engine, undercarriage, and cockpit. The masking set was also useful. There were numerous other minute pieces that I used[...]

1952 Hudson Hornet

This is Moebius Models' 1952 Hudson Hornet. I never built a car kit before, and may never again, but there was something about this subject I found appealing. I detailed-up the engine - plug leads and other cabling/wiring. You can just make ou[...]

M1A2 Abrams with TUSK

This is the 1/35 Dragon SEP kit of the Abrams MBT, with the Legend TUSK (Tank Urban Survival Kit) upgrade. The kit is a little hard to find now, I believe, and I got mine from someone in our club who was thinning out his armour stash. The kit i[...]

Zoukei-Mura J7W1 Shinden 1/32

Here is ZM's Shinden. It's a complex kit. Much of it builds without issues, while other areas require more focus. It builds like a cross between a Tamiya and Trumpeter kit. The complex shapes of the rear fuselage panels in particular are chall[...]

Vintage Fighter Series P-47D Thunderbolt 1/24

You may have read recently that Kinetic has bought the moulds to the VFS 1/24 Thunderbolts. These were originally produced by Ray Thomas, and I bought my kit from him at the Hornchurch show in 2009, and built it a year or so later when it had [...]

P-38L Lightning Trumpeter 1/32

Hi Guys, Here are a few photos of a recent BMF project, with Kitsworld aftermarket decals. I also used the Eduard Big Ed etch set, which added a higher degree of complexity to the build. Thanks for looking.

1/24 Trumpeter Hurricane Mk IIC – Special Night Finish

Here are a couple of shots of Trumpeter's 1/24 Hurricane. I bought the kit second-hand at a model show last spring and built it in the summer. It's OOB except for replacement belts. The livery is for a night fighter of 87 Squadron in 1942. The [...]
