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’ve had a few projects featured in photo galleries on Cybermodeler, Armorama, and Aeroscale, but find I’m never really satisfied with a completed model, and so keep building in hope of achieving that elusive ‘perfect model’.

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

There was another photo that I now can’t locate, an air-to-air photo of three Eurofighters, with the caption, “The Royal Air Force – like the Army, but for smart people.”

I came across this photo of one of my sons-in-law’s grandfather. It was taken we think late 40s or early 50s, probably in the English Midlands. Anyone recognise the ride? The photo absolutely crackles with atmosphere.
