Exciting New Builds In The Shop!

We are lucky to have a number of very talented modelling friends who offer their modelling masterpieces up for display in the shop. Latest to arrive are these lovely builds:

Mike Williams’ 1/18 F-86 Sabre

This is certainly the biggest build in the shop and a superb representation of the iconic Sabre. Built from the Hobby Boss kit (available in the shop) this just shows what a master modeller can do – we love it!

Richard Spreckley’s 1/48 Boeing B-17F Flying Fortress

Our friend Richard dropped by recently and left us with this lovely diorama of a B-17F in a fascinating diorama setting with aircrew and ground crew engaged in various tasks around this impressive airframe. Based on the colour scheme of the “Sally B” aircraft that many will have seen at air shows this is another example of modelling excellence.

Paul Funnell’s Dioramas

Master diorama maker Paul Funnell has lent us a number of his wonderful dioramas for display.

These cover a range of subjects from World War 2 – including “Cocktails At The River” with Russian troops ambushing a German armoured column, along with a lovely desert scene – with Afrika Korps troops examining an abandoned Bishop self propelled gun.

These scenes are fascinating and superbly executed with realistic terrain and scenery and buildings fabricated from insulating foam.

Pop in and give your eyes a treat – and they are all available for sale if you really take a fancy!
