Scratch Built Rocketship - Miniatures Wargames issue 440



The latest issue of Miniature Wargames, December 2019 has an article written by me showing how I scratch-built this retro style rocketship from everyday and easily sourced items. For full details of the magazine and contents see this link.


The model was build as a commission for Crooked Dice as part of their retro Sci-Fi range of games and figures - next month there will be a similar tutorial showing how I modelled the crashed rocketship terrain or gaming board.

Kennel Lane, Broadway - the finished model



The finished model has been glued to a wooden base. In addition I have added a single figure (1:43.5 scale metal miniature) and some resin barrels that I had in my spares box.

The whole model has been matt varnished and some weathering powders have been used on the Tarmac base.

The model is 175mm x 100mm x 140mm tall and is mounted on a wooden base 230mm x 220mm.

IPMS Scale Model World Telford 2019



On Sunday 10th November I was able to visit the IPMS Scale Model World show at Telford. I had not intended to go this year and had made plans to be available for hospital visits (my Mother-in-Law is in hospital), but as my wife, daughter and cousin were planning on being at the hospital, I was able to have some time free to visit the show.

Unlike earlier or past shows, I was not able to spend as much time browsing the exhibits but did manage to take some photos. Here are a selection of some of the more unusual models on display. I hope you like them.
