Hi folks, I’m in my early thirties and live in Newcastle upon Tyne. I work as a cook offshore in the oil and gas industry. I’m fairly new to the rigs but previously worked as a chef in hotels and restaurants. I’m more than happy to trade cooking secrets for modelling tips!
I like to build most modelling genres although I’m more interested in modern engineering.
I have many other hobbies also. I play guitar and piano and love a bit of heavy metal. I’m keen on motor sports and enjoy driving and riding myself. On the quiet days I like a spot of fishing or a bit of quality time with the Playstation!
