From Manchester UK
I have been modelling on and off for about 20 years
like most guys built planes and tanks as a kid
then did the Family thing settled down had two kids
got on with everyday stuff then slowly got back into the hobby and so here i am today modelling mad with a huge stash that i wont live long enough to build!!,I build mostly Aircraft 1/144 upwards 1/72 is my favourite scale i have built the odd tank,

i am a member of the 580 modellers and the Bolton IPMS modellers club, since joining the clubs i have picked up some great new techniques and made some great new mates
