1/72 DH Devon

This is my Rareplane vacform DH Devon I built a couple of years ago.

1/72 Vickers Vanguard

This is the Gene Hooker vacform model of the Vickers Vanguard

A trip back in time: MPM 1/48 I-15 vacuform

So why is it the Czechs make such good plastic models? For those who don't know the answer to that question, the reason why, in the past 24 years since the overthrow of communism and the end of the Cold War, Czech-based companies have come to [...]

Avro Shackleton AEW2 – Sanger 1/48th vacform

The Avro Shackleton is one of my favourite post-war RAF aircraft, and the AEW2 version with its big radome makes for a very interesting looking aircraft. This 'Growler' has been completely overlooked by the 'mainstream' injection manufacturers,[...]

This was done about 2004. The Falcon 1/48 F.R. XVIII vacuform. Still the most accurate Spitfire XIV/XVIII in 1/48. I used a resin cockpit (something I had, nobody can really tell the detail differences between Spitfire cockpits in 1/48 scale [...]
