I build all types of aircraft, but with a special interest in WWII and civil aviation.
I really enjoy building vacform models – I love a challenge and want promote a dying art!
It's been a while since I updated you on my progress with Sanger's massive 1/48th scale vacuform B-52H project.
Since last time I've worked on the fuselage, scratch-building the main undercarriage bays, as well as adding numerous bulkheads and[...]
Here's Airfix's classic Harrier GR3 from the venerable 1/24th scale kit, warts and all. Built as it comes, but with some home-made additions to the cockpit and seat. The kit decals and Xtracolour paints were used throughout.
Just added the finishing touches to Airfix's 1/24th Hawker Typhoon MkIb this week: a project I've had on the bench for the last six months or so. Admittedly I've picked it up and put it down as and when I've felt like it, but regardless this kit[...]
I've put the finishing touches to Trumpeter's 1/32nd scale Flanker C over the weekend. I embarked upon this build as I have always loved the twin-seat Flanker and thought it would be a straight-forward build to be getting on with[...]
I thought you may be interested to see my latest 'work in progress' - Sanger's 1/48th scale B-52 vacuform. I've been plodding on with the engines and wings, and the accompanying pictures show my progress so far. The basic engine na[...]
I used to build lots of airliners but had lost a little interest over the last few years. However, I have always loved the MD-11 and when MicroMir released their's in a 1/144th scale injection-molding I decided to have a go at it.
This is very likely to be my last completed model for 2017 - I've been working on it on and off since August and it crossed the finish line this week.
I picked up this classic from Airfix at a model show for a mere £20, and set about building [...]
The latest off the bench is Revell's new 1/32nd Spitfire MkIXc, which as I'm sure you know follows their release from a few years back of a Spitfire MkII and thus the breakdown of the kits is almost identical.
This was a very plea[...]
I picked up this long out of production single-seat Revell 1/32nd MiG-29A cheap recently, and fancied doing a Polish version so also ordered a set of Decals from Techmod.
I built this more or less out of the box, but did close the upper air int[...]
I fancied a quick and easy project and seeing Spitfires overhead daily during the summer months (I'm under the approach to Biggin Hill) I didn't need much inspiration to dig this one out of the attic :)
This model simply fell together and was [...]
