  1. Sd.Kfz. 232 6Rad.

    That looks nice and dusty, just right for France IMHO.
  2. Lovely work, I also like the basing and presentation. Are you going to use them as wargames figures or were they just a painting exercise?
  3. Wellesley

    Top work as always Tony

    Thanks for setting out Hall One guys, it is the best Hall!
  5. Saxon Firing Line

    great work and close up photography.
  6. French in Eygpt 1799

    Thank you. They are lovely designed and cast figures and the slightly larger size means you can add a bit more detail.
  7. Moth floatplane - military

    From an unpublished manuscript, please credit if used:- Another DH 60G Moth, serial 995 was purchased and was equipped with a pair of floats. This enabled it to be attached to HMNZS Dunedin for work off Samoa in 1930. 995 was finished in overall silver doped and carried its constructors number on the top of the cowling along with a yellow DH Moth logo. Standard RAF roundels and fin stripes were also carried. She was equipped at some point with a pintle mounted Lewis gun firing sideways to port out of the front cockpit. How the pilot, Flt. Lt Wallingford, aimed it, whilst flying the aircraft is a mystery, Wallingford also became the first NZPAF pilot to drop a bomb in anger. Admittedly the ‘bomb’ was a 4 lb treacle tin full of gun cotton, made by the gunnery officer of HMNZS Dunedin and it was dropped by mistake on a friendly target, luckily it missed Andy
  8. Falcon 1/48 Supermarine Swift

    Lovely work, I built this as my first full vac-form more years ago than I care to remember and it is still in my cabinet. Yours is so much better and the flaps really add to the overall effect.
  9. Clubs

    Five fully paid up members means you can apply to be an IPMS Branch, but there is no guarantee you will get space at Telford. It will be on a best endeavours basis as space is becoming more and more of an issue. Also any non-IPMS members of a club have to wait until public opening to get into the halls and pay full entry price. Another good reason to join IPMS.
  10. I've been building a small force for Sharpe Practise. I instead of using some figures from an existing army, I went for something a bit left field. The Perry figures are beautifully moulded and posed and I wish I had the skills to do them justice. I have about 40 infantry and some Camel Corps chaps, but these are the latest figures to traverse he painting table, Dragoons and gunners. If anyone is interested I'll photograph the whole force.
  11. Clubs

    I am tremendously lucky as within 20 minutes of me I have IPMS Rotherham, SESKU (South Emsall South Kirby Lord knows what the U stands for) and the Elsecar Model Club. Each is different, which give each meeting a different vibe( as the young people say). The SESKU meeting is on a Saturday morning in Hemsworth library and actively encourages you to bring a model and work on it. It is the first time I have come across this type of meeting and am really enjoying it. Age range from about 10 to the 'more mature modeller'. Because I work away from home I don't make every meeting but I can usually get to at least one a month which keeps my mojo working and makes me realise I am not alone.
  12. You Know You're Getting Old When ......

    When you realise you had trained not just their fathers but their grandfathers.

    We had a chap from Auckland helping out on the NZ SIG, He even brought a model with him.

    Nothing to apologise for my friend.
