You were only supposed to blow the bloody doors off!

Wasn’t that the storyline for most 70’s action films? Blowing things up in order to get the gold? Well it works for me, and here’s my rendition of the ultimate safe cracker – Karl-Otto Alberty who played the SS Tiger Tank

Knock it off with them negative waves!

Woof woof! Here’s my finished rendition of Sgt. Oddball (AKA Donald Sutherland) from the film Kelly’s Heroes. Absolutely loved every minute of this one, a lovely sculpt and cast and brilliantly detailed! I’ve still got a bust of Karl Otto

Vorsprung Durch Crapkit

Yep, this recently re-popped 1/25 Mk.1 Volkswagen Scirocco by AMT is an absolute dog of a kit. More so because it cost me a whopping £35 inc delivery. If the kit was £9.99 + delivery, I’d have merely been disappointed with

Stainless Steel Titanic…

Something a little different this time – a 1/2000 model of the Titanic built from the Metal Earth series kit by Fascinations. Fascinations make a whole range of these lovely little kits, in subjects ranging from Star Wars to Aircraft

Revenge of the Doodlebugs…

I spotted this 1/48 Tamiya kit in Hobbycraft for £9.99 and as I hadn’t seen it before, thought I’d give it a go… The kit is super simple, just a single sprue and instructions on the back of the box.

It’s a Hawk, and it looks pretty annoyed about something…

My first completed build for a while, this time a nice little Curtiss Hawk which was bought for me last Christmas by my 6 year old nipper. He always likes to get me a “Shark plane”, and I always enjoy
