  1. hi billn53, you asked about my photos - most were taken using a simple (& cheap) macro lens clipped onto my iPhone! Slightly ‘amateurish’ approach I guess, but the results are fairly sharp in the centre of each image. I’ve been experimenting with various camera systems to see which best suits close-up work. I’ll be experimenting further as the Walrus takes shape. Cheers, Phil
  2. This is my first WIP, as a newcomer to BM and many years since building anything! The kit was a much appreciated birthday present although it’s taken me a month or more to roll my sleeves up and get started!

  5. Hello, my modelling days have really been ‘on hold’ since I was a teenager (many, many years ago!). I have always been interested in all things related to aviation, with a schoolboy ambition to become a pilot in the RAF. Sadly they didn’t want me... In those days I was heavily into making balsa aircraft/gliders, the pinnacle of my achievements being a Keli Kraft Chieftain glider - a big beast that actually made many successful flights before its final headlong plunge into a baked-hard corn field! I also built a few plastic kits (mainly RAF WW2 / 50’s/60’s) before I discovered the Air
