  1. Watching this with a certain amount of professional, as well as modelmaking interest, good start !!
  2. Case VAI _Thunder Model_

    Stunning, simply stunning !
  3. Italeri, FIAT 806 ... 1/12th

    Difficult to find words really, probably one of the best examples of truly creative modelmaking I have seen, it almost has that old car smell of cracked leather and straight mineral oil, bravo...art and storytelling at its best ! I humbly doff my cap to you sir David
  4. Vosper MTB 234 -1/72

    Thats a cracker that is, very clever base, spot on !!
  5. Albion recovery truck

    Absolutely spot on, lovely job !
  6. Absolutely beautiful, very dificult to find words for this, as far as I,m concerned the model is probably more desirable than a real one, you can admire its elegant lines and enjoy the immense satisfaction you must feel at such a stunning result, and all of this without having to worry about mini roundabouts and extremely vague steering !!
  7. HMS Jamaica 1/350 scratch built

    Great stuff,looking forward this immensely, they were very attractive carriers (IMHO), lots of very small duffel coats to paint I would guess,
  8. HMS Jamaica 1/350 scratch built

    Super stuff, as always, modelmaking of the highest standard......looks like the bar just got raised again, very interested in your new project, will this Victorious be a wartime one, or a post reconstruction one ?
  9. Airfix 1/12 Bentley Blower

    That is looking truly magnificent, !!
  10. B***dy brilliant, what a beast of model, lovely job !!
  11. Lovely job, I can appreciate the ammount of hard work that you have put in to get such a good result, the kit is so innacurate in places its almost funny, and its really nice to see her modelled in a late war configuration, it would be nice if someone released a decent 1/350 kit but Im sure you feel the same as I do, having been to hell and back, it would also be really annoying !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Big respect to you from a fellow traveller
  12. Italeri - FIAT 806 Grand prix - 1:12

    Truly a work of art, models rarely capture the subtle emotional tones of the original subject, I think that you are showing absolute mastery in this, as much a story teller as a modeller, you have my utmost respect !
  13. Airfix 1/12 Bentley Blower

    This is looking very good indeed, your attention to detail is first rate, how are you intending to deal with the badge position on the radiator ?
  14. Sopwith Triplane

    Wow... thats the way to do it properly !!!! simply fabulous build
  15. 1/32 WnW Brisfit

    Er, the second coolest car ever built .... Rob, they are exquisite in every way, the fit is so good that you could probably build them as snap together kits , (seriously though that can be a bit of a hassle as the tolerances are so tight that sometimes a coat of paint is enough to cause problems), plus the instruction booklets are a work of art in their own right, .......take the plunge, the Brisfit was the first biplane I have built since I was 11, and I had a blast with it (though I did ocasionally wish I had picked a slightly simpler one) !!!
