Hobbyboss 35th King Tiger.

Not been here for a while, just life getting in the way. As a break from my usual long winded builds I bought a Hobbyboss King Tiger with the intention of building it out of the box with no reference. It included working track, suspension and se[...]

Beemax 1/20 McLaren MP4/2 1984 British GP – Kit Review

McLaren MP4/2 1984 British GP Aoshima Beemax 1/20 scale. Kit Beemax No.03 Price £50.20 (Grand Prix Models) To me the GP cars of this period are visually more attractive than their modern counterparts with their massively complex aerodynamics[...]

Atomic City studio scale Klingon D7.

Pictures of my completed Atomic City studio scale Klingon D7. After posting the construction pictures I thought I was close to completion however I wasn't expecting the issues I had with the kit decals. They were well printed but thick, only res[...]

Studio Scale Klingon D7.

My latest Sci-Fi project is a studio scale Klingon D7 from Atomic City. I was quite optimistic that this was going to be a quickish build; smooth surfaces, simple paint job and a low parts count. Well poorly cast parts and doubtful detail put pa[...]

iModeler July Awards.

I was fortunate enough to have my work selected for the July award. From the excellent selection of kits available as a prize there was only really one contender for me, and that was Eduard's "Rockin Rhino". I'm looking forward to starting this [...]

Tamiya 32nd Zero.

I’ve been working on Tamiya’s 32nd scale Zero for a few months now. Generally I enjoyed the build but didn’t appreciate the added complication of the working features. I also struggled with getting the front of the fuselage to line up correctly[...]

Ferrari F430 Challenge

Fujimi 24th scale kit with modified front end. Splitter and dive planes made from plastic card and Miliput. Eduard etch belts. Thanks for looking, Rob.

iModeler September Awards

Thank you martin and everyone at iModeler. My Random Award Eduard kit arrived this morning and its a cracker. I have a confession; I have never built a 48th scale Spit so I'm looking forward to breaking my duck with this beauty. Thanks again,[...]
