About Me

My name is Ross Mahoney and I am the Royal Air Force Museum’s resident Aviation Historian and a PhD candidate in Military History at the Centre for War Studies, University of Birmingham. You can read about this here.

This blog is about my hobbies, modelling, photography and art. I started modelling back in 1993 and made my way through most of the Airfix range quite quickly. I then started modelling vehicles and eventually in 1998 I joined my first club, BMSS Aldershot, where I was introduced to figures. I originally painted in oils but now mainly paint in acrylics though I still  use the former for faces and leather etc. I no longer pigeon hole my hobby and just model what I like be that a figure, armour or aircraft. There is a lot that can be learnt from the different genres of the hobby. More recently I have taken up photography and when time and money permit I hope to pursue this further as I have a keen interest in aviation photography but as yet do not have the tools to do it.

You can also find me on Twitter and Pinterest.

One response to “About Me

  1. My name is Victor Feodorov. I’m a plastic model enthusiast and specialize in 1/35 scale models of German armour/weaponry. I’ve been building models since 1995 and have picked up many tricks along the way which I’ll share as the months go by. I invite you to submit your work with a short description and I’ll happily post it. It’s my hope that this blog will serve as a source for technique and information as well as a forum for displaying models. If you share my passion for modeling, German weaponry and World War II, I encourage you to comment and/or submit your work. I’ll do the same. Perhaps in this way we can expand our network and share the techniques to bring our 1/35 scale models to life. Would it be possible to submit my link, http://armourpro.wordpress.com/
