Welcome to my blog. I have upwards of 100 projects in various stages of incompletion or total abandonment, so you may well find something of interest if you rummage about a bit (check out the Labels at the bottom of the blog). I concentrate on air and naval wargaming, but other 'skirmishy' things quite often pop up out of nowhere, only to disappear again after something else grabs my attention. I even finish the occasional project now and again!

Peter Pig USS Passaic / Old Glory HMS Devastation
1/2400th Tumbling Dice / Old Glory 1/600th
I recently acquired a 1/600th Old Glory resin and metal model of HMS Devastation via eBay, for a fraction of the full asking price and still sealed in it's plastic bag. Although not the most detailed of kits it is perfect as a wargaming model and, with a little detailing, a nice base and a half decent paint job, will look suitably imposing. I plan to use it alongside my other 1/600th scale American Civil War models, even though it wasn't launched until 1871, as a bit of a 'what if?' project. It is pretty impressive and dwarfs the 1/2400th scale equivalent from Tumbling Dice, which is still stuck on the workbench being painted. Nice.
