Welcome to my blog.

Hello, welcome to my blog.  Here I will blah on about what is going on model wise in the workshop, or more accurately the kitchen.  My aim is to show the odd in progress model, let you know what I intend to do next and if you're interested give you sneak previews on future magazine articles that I am writing.

Here we go then.  I have 2 models on the go at the moment, Italeri's new Ju 87B Stuka in 1:48 and Revell's King Tiger in 1:72.

Stuka: - So far this has been a kit of 2 halves.  I love the engine and the cockpit detail, they are the equal of any resin you may get out there but I am disappointed with the fineness of the airframe and it's fit, specifically the wing to fuselage join.  Much elbow grease has been expended which is a bummer as I used almost a whole tin on the PCM Hurricane I built a while ago!  This Stuka will be published in Scale Aircraft Modelling magazine.

King Tiger - Well, it's a little tank and I've only just started.  I have built a tank before, the Hobby Boss KV-1 in 1:48, that model will appear in Model Military International very soon.  I've only glued the wheels together, primed them and painted them so I'm not too far along.

OK, that's it for now.  I'm still getting to grips with this blogging thing so hopefully the layout etc will improve as I go along and pick up tips and techniques.  Until the next time.....


  1. Nice layout. Blogger is a great tool. Did you know that for $10 USD per year, Google will tuen your blog into a web site? I did that with mine for some unknown reason. I think I like the .com part... My blog/web site is: where I try to keep up with many of the new things happening daily. I would like to add a link to your blog if that is ok with you. Thanks.

  2. Cheers Mike, I'm still learning but pleased with how it's going so far. One thing I can't work out is how to get pictures into the text, any ideas? I may investigate that $10 website thing, how do you go about it?

    I'd be delighted if you'd add my humble little blog effort to your links on your blog/website.
