Some time back, in the pursuit of a creative outlet (like many others it
seems) I decided to return to one of the few childhood hobbies that an adult can safety
admit to still liking (without too many raised eyebrows) - Model Making. A
period of some 20 years had elapsed !!!
So, after buying a 1/35th Tiger (of
course) and browsing the net to get back up to speed - hey presto - I was hooked again. So
this site is an informal collection of the military scale models that I've completed to
date. Hopefully the standard of the kits & diorama's will improve over time, but even
if they don't, I do hope to continue enjoying this absorbing hobby.
Choose from the categories at the top of this page, they contain:
Two galleries of the
models completed so far, one for AFV's, the other contains details on a project to build a
wooden Spanish Galleon (that was a heart-breaker!)
Production - Doing another 1/25th
If you're planning to get the Tamiya 1/16th Tiger I (Display
version) - you can get an idea of what you're in for @ Tiger 16.
There's a section Why Tanks? with some rather abstract thoughts on why tanks are such an interesting subject
IWM is about my visit to the Imperial War Museum in London
is some detailed shots of the IWM JagdPanther
contains some of the terms (in German & English) used in AFV development.
The TIPS section is on
a few idea's picked up during the course of building these kits.
The History link is a chronological list of the models worked on to date.
The Airbrushing section
is really for beginners - how I got started basically.
The links section
doesn't include much specific modelling info - but hopefully sites you'll find
