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

Strict Instructions from "She Who Must Be Obeyed" !!

SO, the wife has laid down strict instruction that before i start "ANOTHER SINGLE KIT" that i must either, "finish, fix or bin" ALL the ones laying around. So, as i'm desperate to start the Revell "Iron [...]

HOBBY BOSS 1/72nd German 80cm Railway Gun "Dora"

OK, after my recent success i decided "Go big, or go home", so this ones BIG! The Hobby Boss "Dora". At 1/72nd, it measures 44 inches (base) long, 2800+ parts. When the box arrived, that was BIG also (getting the [...]

REVELL - 1/72 C-160 TRANSALL " Eloka "

Well, this kit has turned out to be a total PITA. Yes it's a skill level 5, but come-on Revell, at least make your instruction understandable! To get this far, I've used MORE filler than on my previous 2 other kits, the inner cargo bay is [...]

REVELL 1/32 TORNADO GR1 "Gulf War"

THANK YOU SANTA, ok, thank you to the Mrs. Next build, and it'll be a LONG one to boot. Revell's 1/32 Tornado Gr1. At 55.1cm, this one will take pride of place in our living room, IF i can do it justice. I know it's an old kit that's been [...]


JUST finished in time for Christmas, ( and the start of my Revell 1:32nd Tornado). My son purchased this kit about a month ago, (along with a 350th Bismarck) and asked me to help him. This usually means "Can you do it for me [...]


Just built these 2 for my son who wants to build a "D-Day" themed diorama (meaning i'll end up attempting it) Straight from the box, few parts (but some very tiny). The only thing i wish i had changed is on the Jeep. That is the [...]


A nice little build made up of 76 parts. Supposed to be a s "snap-fit", but some/most parts were fixed with Tamiya Extra Thin cement. I used a rattle can for this with the red being a shade i liked, and not necessarily the [...]


SO, while i'm out of action with a busted right shoulder rotator cuff, (yes, i'm right handed) i thought i'd post this model that my 15 year old son originally started, and butchered, of the iconic Toyota Supra. He originally hand painted [...]

TAMIYA 1/35th CHEIFTAIN TANK (another build)

Hot on the heels of my last Chieftain being handed back to it's owner (1 week to be precise), i have been asked to build ANOTHER! Learning from mistakes made on the last one, here we go again! Also, first time using a Matt Black Primer [...]

TAMIYA 1/35th M113a2

Found this little kit i started about 10 years ago, will have to get it finished. BUT, i've since moved house and lost a few parts! Any how, i'll add some straps, brackets etc. and try to find some replacement parts. Pictures a little [...]
