50 years old and just entering back into the modelling world. My models are mostly OOB, with only slight detailing..ALL paint is either through a spray can or by brush.
Edit...i've now invested in a compressor and airbrush, so now i'ts a steep learning curve, mistakes WILL be made! lol

REVELL Bf109 G-6

Here is my latest build after quite a long, ongoing illness. Its the 1:32 Revell Bf109 G-6. The build itself was basically OOB, except for some PE seat belts, and a seat "pad" made from an off cut of material (again, not correct, [...]

"SNEAKY PEEK' of my next project

WIP on my Tamiya Jagermeister Porsche 934

Revell 1:72 Avro Lancaster "Dam Buster"

This kit has really "done my head in" lol Started off really well, then turned into a "comedy of errors". First off, a decided it would be a good idea to spray the camouflage at about 3am (after a 12 hour work shift), [...]

HOBBYBOSS Me262 B-1a/U1

Having almost got my health back (not 100%, but getting there), i decided i'd build this HobbyBoss Me262 nightfighter. Fitment was good, apart from the shaped metal nose weight that needed a little grinding to allow the nose to fit [...]

Revell 1:72nd B17-F "Memphis Belle"

So after my son SAT ON my 1:48th version when it was 75% completed (crashed and burned, no survivors, too much damage to repair) i really wanted a replacement. So a guilty son bought me another, only in 72nd scale. My eyesight is still not [...]

TAMIYA T34-85

Built straight OOB. No problems, just a fun little kit to build while I'm recovering from illness. Few things i DONT like about this kit is the gaping chasm where the driver should be if, as i did, you build it with the hatch open, and [...]

1/48th Tamiya M4A3E8 SHERMAN "EASY EIGHT"

Another kit built for my son, BUT, I'm keeping it! Built OOB apart from the logs which i "borrowed" from my neighbours tree to hide a blemish in the paint job (thumb print) Overall I'm happy with the finish, just wish i could get [...]

ITALERI DOUGLAS C-47 SKYTRAIN

Well, after "recovering" from the dreaded Covid-19, I've now been diagnosed with Chronic Post Viral Fatigue Syndrome (yep, I've never heard of it before either.) So work on the Victory has taken a back step. To try and cheer me [...]

Airfix Dehavilland Vampire T11

Yes, this is a starter kit, but, the fit is INCREDIBLE. Did this for a break from the Victory (which is slowly coming along) No filler was required, and all paints used were by Vallejo. Decals went down well with "set" & [...]

HELLER 1:100th HMS VICTORY

So, having had this kit since April, i've finally made a start. HOURS of "Youtube" videos watched, and i finally settled on just 2. (both of whom i class as master-builders) First job was to thicken the gun ports on the lower two [...]
