So only 3 months to go until the war and peace revival.

My mind begins to think what interesting piece of militaria I should buy this year!

My cupboard where I keep the pacific stuff is kinda full!

Might be able to squeeze a pistol in there , or possibly more Bayonets.

I'd like to get a M1942 Bayonet ,  the really long one that was used on the Springfield in the early days of WW2

So hard to verify if US Bayonets are genuine War examples though..... so far the two M1 Bayonets I bought turned out to be fake!

On a completely unrelated note to the Pacific collection ,      Another Musket would be nice :P
Or something British from WW2 ,  like a MKV Sten Gun perhaps!

Who knows!

All I know is , I won't be leaving the show empty handed :P


For those who don't know , my Pacific Militaria collection currently includes.

1942 Springfield M1903 by Remington
Type 38 Arisaka Rifle by Koshikawa Arsenal
M1928A1 Thompson Submachinegun by Savage
Two Japanese Type 30 Bayonets (One by Kokura and one by National Denki)

And a bunch of replica stuff ,  Grenades , Bayonets , Field caps etc

Next weeks car is already decided , Week starting 4th of may however? You decide!

Hello There

I have been drawing since i was about 4-5 years old , i used to draw trains.

In 2001 at the age of 9 , I played Gran Turismo 3 A Spec and since then I have been an Avid Petrol Head and Car Enthusiast :)

This was reflected in my drawings!


Used to love Art lessons, They were my favourite lesson in school.
When we had an 8 hour Art exam , i was one of the few people who loved it!
I finished my piece in 2 hours , so i drew 3 more XD.



I got an A in my Mock exam - i drew a Lamborghini Murcielago Roadster
In the real exam i only got a C - Because i had to do Landscapes XD

Just shows people have specialties!


In 2007 or 8 (I can't remember which!) I stopped drawing!

I didn't draw anything for about 3 years.

However , after moving house in 2011 I bought myself a sketch book and started doodling!

The drawing bug soon took hold again! (once an Artist , always an Artist :P )

In early 2012 I started experimenting using Anime and Manga style in order to draw characters. (I knew nothing of either and had no interest in it until 2011)

Since 2012 my drawing has improved! I'd say there has been more improvement in the last 2 years (2012-2014) than there has been in my entire drawing life!

In early 2012 I also bought my very first car! (crashed it 6 months later though!) and got my first proper Job in Computers!

Since 2012 I have done so much!

I have bought my very first sports car and been to more car shows than I can remember!
My Drawing has been consistent and I keep coming back to draw more! (No danger of going cold turkey again like in '08)

Sadly the bad things came with the good!
In 2014 I was diagnosed with Thyroid Cancer , but later in the same year I was given the all clear! (sadly I doubt my voice will ever return to normal!)

Thanks for viewing my profile!

Lets see what the future holds!

(Hopefully a Trip to Le Mans!)
