Retired nearly 2 years ago and thought I would return to something I hadn’t done for over 55years!
Glad to see Airfix models are still around so I bought a few to begin.
A few mistake have been made, eyesight not what it once was and [...]
Have to admire the graceful beauty of how the hunter looks. Reminds me more of a swallow. One of the reasons I am posting may of these particular paper model builds is that these are considered very basic. You can build these in a few [...]

Well, I realised that I hadn't uploaded my last few builds so here is what I've been working on. First up we have the new Tamiya Spitfire in 1:48. A great kit despite the errors in it. This will be featured in a new series in Model [...]
The Hawker Hunter is one of, if not the, most graceful looking aircraft ever to fly so I was very excited when I first learned that Airfix was going to release one in 1/48 scale. So excited, in fact, that I ended up ordering three: two F. [...]
