So back in Part 2 of my Supermarine Walrus project, I optimistically thought that the modelling was finished… of course as soon as I had finished unwrapping ready for texturing, I changed my mind! As the main use for this plane is likely to be sitting on the catapult of HMS King George V looking […]
I have finally finished work on the Romulan Warbird! Check back at Part 1 to see how I left things previously, but essentially I still had all the detailing to model, and of course all the materials to sort out. The Details Star Trek ships aren’t known for their high levels of surface detailing, unlike […]
I’ve had the Romulan Warbird on my list of scifi ships to model for years, and I am finally doing it! Check out the first part of this project, and see the development of the hull shape and initial detailing.
Detailed examination of the armament of HMS Marlborough, of 1855, during her active career between 1858 and 1864. Published sources are in disagreement as to the size and nature of her armament, and this article attempts to shed some light on the matter.
Having started this one back in 2011 (take a look back at Part 1), I’ve taken advantage of the increase in spare time that 2020 has so graciously given me to get all the materials and maps on my Constellation-class starship sorted out. I’m calling her finished now… but you never know! There’s still some […]
As you may be able to tell from some of my project choices, I have a significant interest in naval history. Specifically, developments in the field of naval architecture from the mid-18th century through to the Second World War. My King George V class project, initially started way back in 2004, is an interesting subject […]
Modelling work on the Supermarine Walrus Mk.I is now complete! This took a lot longer than intended – as ever, real life gets in the way. I have gone into far more detail than is necessary for this, but I figured that if I was going to make this thing, I may as well do […]
I originally said I wouldn’t be reposting old work on here, as it’s all still there on my legacy site. Since Google has started heavily penalizing websites that don’t follow the latest design trends (even if it’s just a part of it), I have decided that it’s time to shutter the old site. Having looked […]
They’re most famous for the Spitfire, but Supermarine mostly made flying boats. The Supermarine Walrus was an amphibious reconnaissance aircraft, carried aboard Royal Navy capital ships and cruisers during the Second World War. Many were also operated directly by the Royal Air Force. The Royal Australian Air Force and the Argentine Navy had examples in […]
I started working on this model of the British battleship HMS King George V way back in 2004. To be fair, I considered it finished, excluding textures, sometime in 2006. However, I never quite did get around to making those textures! A mere nine years later, in October 2015, I decided to try and finish it. […]
