Latest update from March-May 2012

Very nice rendition of a P51-D by Bob Wittle, Tamiya 1/48.
A second excellent Mustang from Bob Whittle, this time with a P-51C ICM 1/48 kit.

A lovely1/72 model of a Spitfire IX by Tim Flokes.

Two photo's of Alan Strickland's model of a Kenetic F-84F 1/48, which came 3rd on the 1st May.

Two shots of Si Tomlinson's 1/32 Tamiya Mustang P-51D which came 2nd in the latest competition held on the 1st May.

The winner of the latest competition on 1st May is a model of a B-17G Fying Fortress by Alan Dagg. The model is a Hasewega 1/72 kit.

I can just feel the atmosphere with these soliders on the back of this King Tiger. This suberb model above/below is by Si Tomlinson and managed a more than creditable 2nd on the 1st May.

WOW! what a lot of detail in this Tiger. Here we see what Kirk Ashley-Morgan can produce a simply superb model and gained him a 1st at the latest competition. Well done. Below we see a further view of his Tiger tank.

And lastly a very detailed DUKW by Lawrance Cassidy. This model came in third place on the 1st May. This model was very well detailed, but alas did not take a higher place in the resent competition.

Hello all, its been a long time since the last blog on our site. So here are some photo's from the latest competition held on the 1st May. Also is the diary for the rest of the year, plus the results of the first two competitions for this year. Futher to this we will be having a summer get together(24th July) at the Spread Eagle pub to enjoy each others company and the excellent food that they do, so please come along from 7.00PM. Futher to this we will also be holding our annual club christmas drinks in the same pub, however, I will book a few tables at this popular time of the year.
