I am 56 yo and after leaving school I joined the British Army. After leaving the Army I joined the Prison Service and have been in 32 years now, all served in the Greater London area, where I still reside. I am a Lancashire lad and maybe one day I will return to God’s country. For now I remain a part time Prison Officer (Principal Officer/Custodial Manager)
I am a long time modeller and now that I have gone part time at work, even more time to do all those models out there and yet to come.
I am happily married to my wife Joanna and the only other love in my life is my beloved Everton.
The Wessex has long held a great deal of interest for me and was a mainstay of the Fleet Air Arm for several years. My father spent many years working on them as a Air Fitter and ended up a […]

Delighted with my unexpected yet very welcome random draw prize. Will go on modelling projects pile and will display once completed. Thank you I Modeller!
Returning to my US Navy theme, one of my all time favourite aircraft the McDonnell Douglas F-4 Phantom. The Academy version is a very nice model and certainly benefits from modern moulding technology. The one piece main fuselage is a […]
Amongst my favourite modelling themes is US Navy aviation during its grey and white period and those colourful squadron markings. So I’d like to start my US Navy theme with the Grumman A-6A Intruder. I had long looked at Hobbyboss’s […]
There just something great about the Harrier and such a shame they taken out of service far too early. Still there good kits released of this classic British aircraft and Kinetics’ 1/48th Sea Harrier FA.2 is a very good kit […]
Carrying on my Airfix love affair, I eagerly waited the new Lightning when it was released. I have built several of the 1/48 scale ones and they were/are superb models and a delight to build. I asked Santa for an […]
