TIM – The Imperfect Modeller

Welcome to TIM – The Imperfect Modeller.

Most of my modelling is geared to the Old West but occasionally a figure comes along which catches my eye and I’m happy to give that a go.

In terms of scale I paint 28mm to 54mm figures although my dioramas tend to be exclusively 28mm due to size constraints.

As this is my first blog and my first post I thought it best to start with some images of my work. In future posts I will describe some of these and other models in greater detail and refer to techniques used  and also list materials and suppliers.

Please feel free to comment and ask any questions.

Thank you for looking.

One thought on “TIM – The Imperfect Modeller

  1. These figures, the attention to detail and your patience to create such fine dioramas, are a credit to you. I’m looking forward to seeing many more of them in the future. Regards, Alan.
