A page for customers to show off their modelling skills and latest creations.
As a big Hunter fan (though you’d never guess from the logo) I have always maintained that no model collection is complete without one, and Revell’s recent re-release of Camm’s finest in 1/32 scale will do much to rectify that. Jon Howes has built one straight out of the box. He says he has completed it rather quickly, as his other half is due to give birth to their second child later this month. Well done Jon, and I’m sure you’re looking forward to the sleepless nights (plenty of time for more modelling).
Another First World War entry from Chris Dowling, with the Eduard 1/48 Sopwith Camel. A rather less complicated camouflage scheme than the Fokker, but no less well presented.
Robert Loonstyn normally specialises in 1/35 armour, but will occasionally wander off into something different. This is his rendition of Mini Art’s 1/16 Burgundian Knight.
One of my regular customers is Chris Dowling, who has a fondness for 1/48 Great War aircraft, and is steadily working his way through the Eduard range. Here is his Fokker D.VII in the ‘lozenge’ camouflage applied to many examples of this superb fighter aircraft. Count the purple stripes on the wings; every one had to be applied individually.
Another of Airfix’s recent 1/72 offerings is the Mitsubishi Zero. Dave Malkinson bought this one from me a few months back, and used an airbrush for the first time in its completion.
First off is Gareth Windsor’s Airfix 1/72 Mustang. Gareth bought this from me at Culdrose Air Day last year and has used it partly as a testbed for trying out weathering techniques.
