With 18 aerial victories, “Ginger” Lacey was the second most successful British pilot during the Battle of Britain. A Battle of France veteran and ace, he was shot down or forced to land 9 times by the end of the Battle of Britain but scored a total of 23 victories. He was awarded the Distinguished […]
Working on a commission, I’ve almost finished the template for the legendary Mitsubishi A6M2 Type 21. Once I’m done, I’ll have to move on to other projects so I don’t know when I’ll be able to present actual finished profiles rather than this somewhat sad all-grey template. 🙁 Paints used on Japanese aircraft during World […]
This PBY-5A Catalina of VP-44 was flown by Ensign Jack Reid and his crew when the spotted the Japanese invasion fleet some 700 nautical miles west of Midway on 3 June 1942. This profile was created for Historia magazine’s special issue on great historical battles.
One of the several ongoing projects I’m working on is the Boeing B-17 Flying Fortress. Since the Fortresses often had interesting nose art and markings, I decided to make the fuselage separately from the wings and engines so that I can show the complete nose art in case it is masked by the engines.
Well, I’ve finished the templates for two T-6 Texan variants: the AT-6D (actually the antenna post is missing) and the famous T-6G version. Profiles of these will be coming soon, but will probably have to wait after Christmas as I have a very large workload. I’ve started working on the B-17 Flying Fortress template, and […]
I’m currently working on the famous North American T-6 Texan. I began with the fuselageof the AT-6D variant. Once this is complete, I’ll add the wings and then convert it to the T-6G variant, which is probably the best-known version of this ubiquitous trainer. Once I’ve done all that, I’ll need to create the starboard […]
It is with great pride and honour that I would like to introduce my partnership with maxFlite. The concept behind maxFlite’s product is quite simple: we all have fond childhood memories of playing with small foam gliders with propellers. In most cases, these gliders were as much fun as they were flimsy and unrealistic. MaxFlite […]
I’ve finished converting the new Hawker Tempest Mk V template into an early-series Mk II. Below is the Mk V template for comparison. I have a personal preference for the Mk V, which looks like some sort of brutal beast, but I must say the sleek and speedy lines of the Mk II are nice […]
A well-know warbird, Bf 109G-2 WkNr 10639 flew for many years as G-USTV before being damaged in an accident on 12 October 1997. It is now restored and displayed in the RAF Museum London. I’ve made two profiles, representing it as it was when it was still flying (top), and in its current condition (below). […]
“Miss Velma” of The Fighter Collection is a P-51D-25-NT which was converted into a dual-control TF-51D but retained the original fin and rudder of the Mustang, instead of receiving the higher Cavalier type. It is painted in the colours of scheme of Capt Frank Birtciel’s P-51D 44-14561, Miss Velma, of the 55th Fighter Group. A […]
