52 year old , reurning back to a hobby started over 40 years ago. Building mainly aircraft with a few motor cars as well. I have been amazed at the after sales market for extra`s.
Things have come a long way since I started. Still, all the better, scrach building was an art form in its self.

M2 A2 Tamiya 1/35th scale circa 2002ish.

Well I thought I would post this build from about 2003. My mother retired from work and decided to take me on holiday. We went to Guernsey (one of the Channel Islands), we had spent time there before. Anyhow, I brought this kit as a present for [...]

B.a.t.B Part 2. The Beast.

Well here it is , the beast, well that is what I am calling it... A Gloster Gladiator MK 2 , No, 605 ( County of Warwick ) Squadron, based at R.A.F. Tangmere 1939. This is the Airfix 1/72 released in new tooling. Also it was my first attempt at [...]

B.a.t.B Yep, Beauty and the Beast Part 1.

Well here it is, un veiling day. The story so far. The good Lady Biggles (Rose) built the Beauty, a Spitfire MK 1 (Tamiya 1/72). Her third ever build and first solo so to speak. Well Tamiya speaks for itself, shake the box and it goes together. [...]

Hellcat Mk 2. Eduard 1/48 scale.

Well here is. I won this kit on the random draw last year and I finally finished. It has been a fun build but not without a problem or two, down to me rather than the kit itself. See the WIP for details. Painted in the F.A.A. colours, this air[...]

Our Spitfires. Revell 1/72nd

Well, a happy Xmas to all . Here are some pics of a pair of Spitfires my wife and I built. I posted them as I thought it might be of interest to those SWMBO. The kits were Revell 1/72 Spitfires Vb`s, which were basic kits. The fit was not too ba[...]

Thank you iModeler.

Hi good people, It just arrived today, my prize from the lucky draw. I would like to thank all at iModeler for the Eduard Hellcat Mk 2 1/48 scale. It is the first time I have won anything on a lucky draw or whatever so I was stunned when I found[...]

RAF Mustang III 1/48 Tamiya.

Well this my second posting the Mustang III, done in natural finish. The kit went together as any Tamiya kits do. The wings were a tight fit but hardly any filler used any where,. Had a bit if a nightmare with the colour scheme, I was originally[...]

Hawker Typhoon Airfix 1/72.

Having just got back into this hobby and seeing the posts, I thought I would add my little Tiffie. I know that it is not that brilliant and that the standards here are very good but to read and learn from the comments will help me no end. Mad[...]
