About Me

Hi there, as far as this daft hobby goes my interests mainly centre around aircraft, with Bomber Command (V-Force and interwar years), Soviet Cold-War era jets and experimental jet aircraft and projects, being of particular interest. Other interests include warships and space exploration (mainly WWII battleships/heavy cruisers and space launch vehicles) though to be honest, I'll model just about anything that takes my fancy. I'm now retired officially but continue working, just about full time, for Airfix Model World magazine and the odd bit of research for Airfix, the company. Over the past 20+ years, I've written many articles for most of the major model magazines including Scale Models, SAM, Finescale Modeler, Tamiya Magazine, Model Airplane International and the short-lived Cold War Aircraft Modeller. Also a few real-world articles for Flypast. I used to undertake commission work but now mostly concentrate on magazine articles, well, it keeps the wolves from the door!...if you made it through this far give yourself a pat on the back and a gold star.
