About Me

My photo
Chatham, Kent, United Kingdom
I'm 46. And currently a full time carer for Mom.. I am also disabled, and suffer from Avoidant Personality Disorder. I also like Photography, Museums and Art Galleries. Military vehicles have always been of an interest to me, and I only got into aviation after my Father passed away twelve years ago.

Why no updates from me 19/02/2018

Life has a way of keeping you alert, and kick in the teeth every now and again. Well today I got a kick in the teeth from life. We were told today that Mum has terminal Cancer, and has only a few weeks. This means that my hobby has taken a downturn at the moment, while I care for Mum.

Canadian built Valentine Mk.VI (early production) 14/01/2018

The Valentine Mk.VI was produced by the Canadian Pacific Railroad Company. The Mk.VI used a mix of both American and Canadian mechanical parts, and was powered by an American GMC diesel engine. Late production versions had a cast glacis plate as well as more use of cast sections instead of fabricated ones. The first fifteen tanks were armed with a Besa 7.92mm co-axial machine-gun, the Besa was replaced by a co-axial Browning 0.30 inch machine-gun.
Most of the Canadian produced tanks were supplied to the Soviet Union under Lend-Lease. With a few retained in Canada at Borden Camp in Ontario for training.

My first completion for 2018

This is a 1/24 scale Grey Matters figure of an RAF Fighter Command pilot in 1940. The figure was painted in acrylics, enamels and oils. I'm quite pleased to how it turned out.
