Hello my name is Cameron I just joined kiwi modeller site with my dad [ McPlop ] I'm 13 and have been a member of the Wellington IPMS for nearly 3 years.
Attached is a picture of my Hasegawa Zero which has won me 2 IPMS competitions and a model shop Hasegawa competiton as well.
Currently working on an Academy ME 163 in a diorama depicting Eric Brown's flight in a captured ME 163 and also, a Frog/Novo Spitfire XIV and V1 for the crappy kit competition.
Hi Cameron, welcome to the site, great stuff lovely builds, you should be proud of them as should your Dad
If you need anything just shout we're here to help, maybe eventually if we get enough of our own junior modellers we could do a group build just for you guys (just an idea, something to keep your interest up).
'Yea, Though I Fly Through the Valley of the Shadow of Death, I Shall Fear No Evil. For I am at 50,000 Feet and Climbing.'
Welcome aboard Cameron and his Dad.
Congrats on your awesome Zero build, well done.
Great bunch of peeps here, with a ton of talent in our hobby, so ask away if you have any questions.
Look forward to seeing builds from you and your dad posted on here.

Update In Stash:
Lots of 1/35 Armor mainly WWII German and a few Modern British/American pieces, 1/32 Aircraft and 1/48 Aircraft. Aircraft chosen to replicate RNZAF and RAAF types through the years. Some RAF & USAF types exist also.
Welcome aboard Cameron. Sounds like you've set yourself a bit of a benchmark with the Zero. We'll look forward to seeing your postings in the future and good luck with your diorama and the crappy kit competition.
Weaving a silk purse from a sow's ear sounds like an idea for a future KM online fun-build competition eh Gary? We all probably have a the odd junkyard kits in our stashes that take up valuable space.
On the bench:
Airfix 1-48 Tiger Moth

Welcome Cameron. Congratulations on the Zero and good to see you doing research for the ME 163 and entering oddball comps like "crappy kit"
Old crappy kits can be challenging, great learning experiences and lots of fun
Look forward to seeing your builds on here
My preference - WW2 RNZAF & Pacific Theatre, Allied & Axis, ETO, Mediterranean, AFV & figures
I enjoy doing research

Back after a long hiatius from the site, decided i'd come back with some pictures of my latest project and a pic of my best model ever, my current project is a Fujimi F7U-5p Cutlass photo reconnaissance aircraft, and is the US navy's worst Aircraft, the photo recon version only had around 3 examples made, as the camera equipment added some more "unique flying characteristics" to the cutlass, the other kit is an Academy p51 D in 1/72 and is built in the scheme of Bob Hoovers yellow pace aircraft from the Reno air races, the aircraft has been converted to a post WWII aircraft with out machine guns, jump seat and VHF radio set on the tail, sorry if the pictures aren't the best i took them with my I-Pad.
