I’m rediscovering the magic of model making, something that has not been a part of my life for nearly three decades!

I can remember the unbridled joy it used to give me as a young lad when, with pocket money in hand, I’d soon find myself of a Saturday morning eagerly scanning the rows and rows of boxes in my local model shop trying to decide which kit to take home with me for that week’s enjoyment. Now I want to recapture that excitement and the pride of a kit well made.
