I returned to modelling after a break of many years. Most of my recent efforts have been spent in developing new (and old!) skills and techniques for just about everything !!! Models – mainly aircraft but some armour and ships. Since coming back to modelling, projects have been mainly nostalgic a mix of Monogram Revell and Airfix – all scales, but gradually moving to more modern kits.
I am a member of Ipms Harrow/Barnet.
Married and living in North London. Two married daughters – one cat – two granchildren ( twins)!
Cheers Everyone!
