While I've been absent-mindedly progessing (well, we'll call it that) with my Royal Caroline wooden ship, and from time to time checking out the lovely builds on iM (and, just to keep in the loop, posting a few builds I've completed in the past [...]
Found on Youtube is this comprehensive video coverage of the 2013 IPMS UK Scale Modelworld in Telford, England. Expertly presented by someone... a bit unexpected. Viewing the two clips will take about 20 minutes of your time, in return providing[...]
This is the 1/48 scale Eduard Focke-Wulf Fw 190 D-11 built from the Dual Combo kit.
I wanted to represente the Fw190 D-11 "<61" from the "Verbandsführerschule General der Jagdflieger". I based my paint work on the Jerry Crandall books.

Here are some pics of my Wingnut Wings Fokker E.III. This was built out of the box except for the seatbelts (HGW Laser Cut) and Rigging (Gaspatch turnbuckles). Since the early engines, especially the rotaries, spewed oil all over the place, it g[...]
This is the 1/48 Monogram kit, purchased as the -10A post-WWII Rescue version. I thought a colourful scheme of internediate blue-over-white finishes, with bright red and yellow bands, would make a big impression as a scheme.
When I opened the b[...]
The Falcon Seahawk first came out in around 1988-89. This was done in 2003, using decals scaled up on an ALPS printer by a friend to do the seabird squadron marking of 899 Squadron with other decals from the dungeon. The kit itself is not easy[...]
