Hi,I am based in Warrington in the north west of England and usualy build 1/48 scale aircraft ,generaly WW2 and coldwar so from1939 up to around 1975 (ish !),my current main interests are anything Israeli and British fleet air arm. If anyone is interested in swapping information please feel free to get in touch.
I am a 1966 vintage and work in the Chemicals industry which is boring and usualy involves keeping some pretty nasty stuff under lock and key.
I am also a biker and am into the great outdoors, and good old fashioned rock n roll,the louder the better.

Nord 2501 Noratlas 1/72 Heller

Well as always I am good to my word, I said I'd build the kit my peers picked and so here it is and it has not been easy. Because of the way the kit is constructed it is possible to build the fuselage completely before moving on to the wings and[...]
