Revell 1/32 F4U-1A Corsair

This is Revell's 1/32 Corsair from around the time I was born, so it's old. I picked it up for £10 during last year's Black Friday sales, due to the minimal investment I felt it was a ripe candidate for experimentation and it's the first kit I[...]

Revell 1/48 Typhoon commemorating the 75th anniversary of the Battle of Britain

This is Revell's Tiger Meet kit and Caracal's decals for the special version of the Typhoon. The kit is a bit of a pig to put together, the intakes are a particular annoyance. But, plenty of test fitting and planning ahead meant it went togethe[...]

Tamiya 1/48 P-38

This is my attempt at what is probably 2019's most popular model, Tamiya's 1/48 P-38. It was a fun kit to put together, no fitting issues at all and the included weights and masks make it even easier to assemble and finish. Hope you like it.

Tamiya 1/48 F-16 Aggressor Arctic Splinter

This is my Tamiya 1/48 Viper in the Arctic Splinter scheme. I used pre-cut masks from www.dnmodels.com for the paint job and custom decals from www.twobobs.net. The decals come with walkway lines in black, white and grey to make it easy to cov[...]

Kinetic 1/48 F-16XL

Hobby Boss 1/48 YF-23 Black Widow II

This has been one of my favourite designs since I was a child. I had fun building this and tried a few new ideas like tinting the canopy and colour variation on the heat tiles in the exhaust. This was also the first kit I used pre-shading on. Th[...]

Italeri 1/48 F-14 Tomcat

For my first post, here is my rendition of Italeri's F-14. I enjoyed building this but now I want to do one of Tamiya's versions.
