Air gaming Section
These pages display some of the photos from my collection that I use for air combat games. We
use rules by Wessex games and A&A Games (see the links on the right of this page) and play various
WW2 and Modern eras. At the moment I only have some pictures of the models I own, which I get
from either Collectair (Scotia), Navwar or a few from GHQ. Hopefully I'll add to this soon, with
some articles and more guides to scratch building and converting planes.
Some of the photos have been modified in Photoshop to remove the flight stands and unfortunately its a bit obvious in some of the photos. The buildings are Irregular, Timecast, Scratch built and from Military Miniatures in NZ who are no longer are in business. The trees are a mix of Woodland Scenics and K&M.
The Decals and numbers on the aircraft are either from I-94 or hand-painted.
Click on the thumbnails to see the full sized image. Note these are about 4 times large than real so it isn't very flattering!
Scratch building a Mig31 Firefox in 1/300th scale
This three part article was a 3 year project to scatchbuild a firefox in 1/300th. The reason it took so long was that my interest waned and the project was put on hold for a couple of years.

Photos of my Soviet Aircraft in 1/300th. These are mainly cold war aircraft and I started the collecting them as support for my 1/300th Soviet armies. I then got interested in some of the more obscure aircraft in service and ended up with planes like the Yak28 and Tu128.
The Falklands gallery contains photos of some Argentinan planes used during the 1982 war. We became interested in this period after playing C21 and they have been used many times the bomb British warships (unsuccessfully).
