About Me

Five years ago, my 10 year old son said, "Dad, this Airfix stuff looks cool!"  That was all it took.  I instantly remembered my modelling joy when I was a teenager with Airfix, Revell, and Historex and it was inevitable that I would leap straight back into modelling.  I think it was going to university in the mid-1980s when it stopped and then 20 years in the Royal Air Force, a family and a new career in civvy street ensured little time for the wonderful hobby.  But I am back into it and although my teenage son still dabbles alongside, modelling has really grabbed me again and alongside my best friend as well - perfect.  I manage to find some time for modelling - never enough though, but a busy job has to fund the stash (and pay the mortgage).  I'm overwhelmed by the quality of the modelling I come across and hope to get better as we go along.  I love the research too and spend ages whilst travelling pouring over guides and magazines.  After a while just dipping in and out of the Britmodeller site, I've finally joined and I will do my best to contribute.
