Hello and welcome to my World War 1 aircraft models site.

I started constructing plastic model kits as a child, many years ago, but as happens, stopped as I grew up and didn’t start modelling again until I was in my early twenties. Another long break in modelling followed whilst I served in the Royal Air Force and later, as a civilian Technical Author. I’m now retired and find the time to fill my days with my passion for modelling. It was during my service career I got the alias of ‘Sandbagger’, due to the many ‘tall’ stories I would apparently tell on occasion. My preference has always been aircraft of the period covering World War 1 and the models I build are in 1:32 scale. Most of these models have been modified and/or corrected to make them as authentic as possible. Gallery Contents My models are shown on separate pages and some are accompanied by a ‘build log’ created in PDF format. These build logs detail, where possible, details of the pilot and of the particular aircraft. They also include reference material photographs and drawings as well as full stage by stage chapters on how the model was constructed. The build logs are for modellers to download and use as either a building guide or as reference material. The PDF’s have book marked Chapters if viewed in ‘Adobe Reader’. Look for the ‘PDF’ icon. For 10 years I was involved with the World War One flight simulator ‘Wings Over Flanders Fields’, created by Old Brown Dog (OBD). In addition I created and still run the web site ‘EAW Tally-Ho’, which since 2002 has hosted third party modifications for the flight simulator ‘European Air War’, originally released by MicroProse.
