I have been modelling 1/76th for many years and hope you find my kits and wargaming interesting and an enjoyable surf!
Bear with me as i get my camera abilities better.

My kits are a mixture of plastic injection, resin and white metal. plenty of local Australian resin kits but also venerable Airfix and Matchbox models too....

Mainly European WW2 which first started out with US forces, then onto UK and then a smattering of Russian- but i realised i had to have someone to compete against..... so along came the Axis kits..

Click on the pictures, they expand and provide better detail.

Hope you enjoy and thanks for all the positive comments

Buffalo- just what you need to cross the Rhine with....

Classic plastic here- Airfix Buffalo
lovely old kits let down by the tracks
the jeeps are crap and wont see daylight


  1. I really like all the weathering you do, really gives the tanks/vehicles a sense of realism that is often lacking in historical models.

  2. thanks for the positive comments- i think these things need to be dirty and well used
    the winter of 44 was the wettest in a 100 years and the allies virtually lived in their machines- they should be filthy and look well used as far as i am concerned! ha

    it quite surreal blogging ones models- its been such a big part of my life and yet its so so private...that displaying them for people to comment on is very differant and one doesnt know what sort of feedback one will get

    thanks to everyone for the comments! david on a jet between Dubai and Melbourne!!!

  3. I think the Buffalo is one of Airfix's hidden gems and you are quite right about the tracks and the jeep.

    I totally agree with your other comments about the feedback, you just never know what you are going to read in your email inbox!

    Keep on blogging!!!

  4. Wow! A nice model (It was a long time since I saw it again), greatly painted!!

    Well done mate!

    Your models are very lively!!
