News for October 2017.


Hello everyone here is my news page for October.



What happened to September, month went very quickly. Not much to say for October only that two more additions to my stash the Airfix Walrus an awesome looking kit and Hobbyboss Spitfire 1/32 VB kit this finishes my 1/32nd scale ventures.


I havent done any modelling and my work in progress page shows what I am intending working on and hasnt moved on since last month. Please have a look for updates.

The only thing I have done is a small mod to my Revell Phantom F4C/D the external fuel tanks didnt really line up and dipped down toward forward. I have taken these off straigtened them up some and filled where the mounting is the under wing.

It was also suggested a dull down coat so I have sprayed some matt over all the surfaces. Looks better but not perfect.

The link to my page is here.



My finished work is shown on my gallery page......

The Essex Modellers Show 2018.


The show was a great success in 2017 . Looking forward to 2018 now.

The link for the website here:- http://theessexmodellersshow.com



I have kept updating events and shows. I am sure most are now confirmed for 2017. I have some 2018 dates coming in now as well. Keep having a look as these are coming in fast.

I have added a Military and Airshow event page where I will promote all these type of events separately. Many events are at Museums and well worth a visit.


There are links to pages where the listing of  the shows and events that I know and can verify.

Please keep looking often, as I add them as and when I can verify the dates.

I keep spending alot of time catching up on Facebook with the many friends and groups I have joined, much to my dear wife's annoyance. There is always wonderful work displayed on the many pages and cannot believe how many great modellers there are out there.

Please remember if you are visiting a favourite show please make sure you check information before travelling.

Please contact me through the contact page I will always welcome photos or event news to add to my website.

Please keep looking in from time to time and I wish you many happy hours making that favourite scale model.


Thank you.

Pete and Sol.
