ICM 1:35 British Infantry 1914 (3)
Well, what should have been a project I finished last year has been on hold for long enough, and I have finally got around to tackling these World War One boys and am determined to get them finished over the next week or so. Today I finished the officer, a ...

Master Box 1/24 'Marshal Jessie'
Master Box in the Ukraine have been consistently producing some very good and interesting figure kits over the last few years, not only the stock-in-trade WW2 lines common to most scale model companies, but also ranges covering WW1, the American West, more ...

AMT 1/2500 Cadet Series USS Enterprise NCC 1701 (4)
There is
such a thing as getting ahead of yourself, rushing on regardless of
the consequences and I fell foul of this attitude with my latest

Small Stuff - A Few Miniature Figures
Checking through an old memory stick of mine I came across a few images of several miniature (35mm -ish) figures I've painted over the last few years, some of which I no longer have. They are a mixture of Games Workshop Warhammer 40,000 and Reaper miniature...
