This is the 1/72 scale Swiss Air Force F-5E. Kit is by Italeri. and is built
virtually Out of the Box. The modeller only modified things by spraying the orange spine of the model and cutting up the decals into more manageable sizes
for ease of application.

By Hugh Williams


This entry is a 1/72nd. diorama of an FW 190A-4 in a revetment in North Africa as the German Army was in full retreat to Tunisia. Kit is the Tamiya A-3 suitably modified with a "desert" camouflage that was hurriedly field applied over the
usual Northern Eoropean scheme...hence the weird mix of Afrika white bands with yellow nose and tail.

By Hugh Williams

The model is the 1/48th.Monogram B-25 serving with the Air Apaches in the Phillipines towards the end of WW2. Scene represents an actual crash landing by this aircraft and the retrieval of the airframe, about to be lifted so that the undercarriage could be manually lowered. The tractor cranes are from other Monogram kits...they always were great for the accessories they provided as standard.

Figures all modified from various 1/72 scale sets. Polyester resin water scene poured in many thin layers, hand sculpted for the wave effect and engine/ propellor wash.

By Bill Thurley


The model is a 1/35 scale T-62 in the markings of the Iraqi Army...shown as a result of being destroyed by British Challengers. This was the first time that the modeller had tried to replicate the burnt out effect that the turret shows, the modeller is very happy with the result which is a combination of black & brown paint with pastels.

By Nino Ferrari

14 The model is a 1/35 Phase 3, Type 2 ASLAV and represents a conceptual Surveillance vehicle, with the mast head consisting of a system currently used by the US Army and also fitted with the current Remote Weapon Station fitted to vehicles in Iraq. The model is scratchbuilt using the lower hull from the Italeri 25 kit, with the top half of the hull done in resin and the remaining items cast in resin or made from plastic card and brass wire.

By Brett Robinson

The vehicle is the heavily modified Churchill Mk 7 into a Churchill Mk4. The turret is an aftermarket item as are the tracks, apart from that the entire bridge section and mount is scratchbuilt, as are the mk 4 hull modifications (I had an old style rivet maker and it took me days just to make the rivets!) The figures are the kit figures with replacement resin heads. The kit decals are a mix of some that a friend made for me as well as resicast and archer.

By Sean Lomas


The model is the Tamiya 1/35th matilda with Fruil tracks and an awful lot of scratchbuilding! It has been altered to represent a Mk 4 Serving on Bougainville with the 2/4th Australian armoured regiment. I hope you like it

By Sean Lomas


This is the 1/48 Eduard Albatros D.III built mostly out of the box as an OAW built aircraft.

The remainder of the markings were taken from Aeromaster "Albatros Collection Pt2" and represent an aircraft from Jasta 49 in 1917.

By Brad Cancian


This is the 1/48 Hasegawa Bf-109G-6 with the Aires detail set (engine and cockpit)added, as well as True Details wheels and some additional detailing in the engine bay with solder, fuse wire and metal foil. The decals came from Aeromaster sheet 48-001 and represent an aircraft in Royal Hungarian Air Force service - This particular machine served with 5/1 Fighter SQN in Russia some time in 1944. All national markings were painted on, the only decals were the Hasegawa stencils and the codes / SQN badge.

19 The 1/48 Academy Hunter F6 is a few years old now but still one of the modellers faves. Much maligned in the press, one would think Academy did their research on the Wright flyer.The modeller added a few Aeroclub enhancements and Aeromaster decals (and myriads of kit stencils). Its a Hunter. What's not to like.
20 This is the Hasegawa 1/72 Spit VIII RAAF version, entirely OOB except for some
tape seatbelts.

This entry is the Emhar 1/72 A7V - pretty well OOB with just a few rivets and grab handles added.

By Wayne Frisch


1/72 DHA Vampire T35A. This is the horrible Merlin kit, which had plastic "goosebumps" all over it. The modeller replaced the tail fins and reworked the tailplanes, also replaced the canopy and undercarriage. At least the white metal seats were nice! Decals were from a Dave's Decals Telstars sheet and the modeller also added Tasman drop tanks.

By David Edwards


1/72 Academy P40E Kittyhawk, with CMK cockpit and Red Roo decals. The modeller used Gunze paints and followed the excellent decal instructions.

By Wayne Frisch
