About Alan McNeilly (AlanL)

Greying slightly, but young at heart. I've been teaching adults off and on for most of my life. Left the services in 85 and first started modelling in about 87 for a few years. Then I had a long spell when I didn't build anything (too busy) and really just got started again during the summer of ...


Hi Ron, Thanks for looking and glad you enjoyed the builds. Some still to be finished off, but that always seems to be the way lol, lol. Henk said he'd add the Churchill AVRE which got missed off and would finish off the year nicely. Been a lot of fun, a steep learning curve and I'm hoping to get some of them into dios this year. With so much to catch up on and so many new kits, I'm spoilt for choice right now. Cheers Al

Hi Glenn, Thanks for your over generous comments. The Pier was having a bit of a rest whilst I finished the Churchil AVRE. I almost got started on the windows but ended up with the wrong tickness of glass so I'm awaiting the arrival of some 0.5mm stuff which is what I think you used. That said some 14 civilians and workers are on the bench Patience buddy lol, lol. Hi Brad, Seeign a few of them pictured here spurred me on to getting a couple more moved on a stage or two. So I've three on the bench now getting stowage added and then I can finish off weathering them. An M4 SHerman Mk IB is also well on the way to completion, a salvage job from another life. Glad you mentioned the boats, these have been a big part of the last two years and I learnt a lot from building them. There are only 3 of the 6 featured here but they are a lot fun. Thanks for all your input guys, without it I'd still be back in the Dark Ages Cheers Al

Hi Henk, realise this wasn't an easy one to co-ordinate so here's some pics of the kits that got left out: Thanks for updating the profile, realise it wasn't an easy job. Chirchill AVRE Cromwell Mk IV Centaur 2nd M4 Sherman Ic Firefly M4 Sherman Mk I - 144th RAC M4 Sherman Mk I Hybrid - this is a better pic than pic 9 M4 Sherman Mk I - 1NY M4 Sherman Mk I - 1 NY RN LCM 3 - The Italier kit RN LCVP USN LCM 3 M4 Sherman Mk IB 105mm This one may have appeared ater the event, it's not complete yet so leave it out if you want to, I can't remember when it got done. There are pics in my gallery if that's easier, hope this helps Cheers Al
