Enjoying 2nd modelling career after retirement. Main interests BoB and WW1 a/c but food, wine and local history rate quite highly. Published some books on the BoB which seem mildly popular.

Calais Marck Late afternoon 15 August 1940

My last post showed images of the Airfix 1:48 Scale Messerschmitt Bf 109 E-4/B that I'd finished at the end of 2018. This was modelled along the lines of Yellow 3 in which Leutnant Horst Marx was shot down near Tunbridge Wells in the early eveni[...]

Airfix 1/48 Scale Messerschmitt Bf 109 E-4/B

My first Airfix build for many years was a far cry from experiences with this manufacturer’s kits from years gone by. I’ve had this kit for several years now, one of two bought together in a rash of enthusiasm to produce models of all the known [...]

An F 14, but not as you know it, Jim………

During the last few months of 2017, I’d enviously followed the posts that Marc Barris presented, describing the various scratch-built, vacform models he makes in 1/32 scale. Blessed with detailed plans of the full-size models and with much skill[...]

Spitfire P9507 Crashed 17 July 1940

Some 10 years ago, almost 50 years after my first modelling experiences as a teenager, I chose to re-engage in this past-time to get a better understanding of how various aircraft looked that became casualties around my home town near Eastbourne[...]

Another version of Duxford’s Bf 109 E-4/N

Some time back, I threatened to post an article showing the results of my 3rd attempt to model the Bf 109 that came down not far away from where I live today in East Dean near Eastbourne. As many of you know, the remnants of this particular a/c [...]

Local Tip & Run Fw 190 Casualty – August 1942

As Operation Barbarossa continued to decimate both Russian and German forces on the Eastern Front, the bulk of the Luftwaffe forces that had been ranged against Britain during 1940 had been thrown into the meat grinder that typified the conflict[...]

Zertsoerer day fighter swansong during Battle of Britain 1940

Early on the morning of the 27th of September 1940, Austrian Gruppenkommandeur, Horst Liensberger, of V Gruppe / (Zerstoerer) Lehrgeschwader 1 led a formation of 10 Bf 110s from his unit on an escort mission for some KG 77 Ju 88s which were supp[...]

First of 3 Local BoB Bf 110 casualties

Around my home town of Eastbourne during August and September 1940, no less than 3 Messerschmitt Bf 110 heavy fighters were brought down over land and probably many others were lost off the coast, unable to regain comparative safety in north Fra[...]

September 1940 – Ready for the next sortie over England

A fit of over-enthusiasm a couple of years ago suggested it'd be a good idea to put together a diorama depicting a typical Jagdwaffe camouflaged revetment as summer came to a close in 1940 somewhere in the Calais area of N France as a base for o[...]

Monster Triplane Wit a bit of Tinkering

As threatened previously, here are some pics and the background to what started out as one of those Hachette (very expensive) part works that claimed to give you a 1/8th scale model of the Red Baron's Fokker Triplane. An old chap who died a coup[...]
