I live in Norfolk, England. I’m a member of the IPMS-affiliated Norfolk Scale Model Group in Norwich, and we take part in various regional and national exhibitions throughout the year. You can find us on Facebook, at

My modelling interests centred originally around aircraft, but other projects include armour, civilian vehicles, figures, ships and dioramas.

I enjoy looking at the work of other modellers, for inspiration.
