Single, dowdy, old spinster who lives with two cats in the east of England.
Mainly builds 1:72 and a few 1:32 with the very occasional 1:48. Currently on a French kick.
Love to turn old sows ears into silk purses.
Got my love of modelling from being the first born, who should have been a boy and was going to be taught how to build models by my dad, like it or not.

1:72 Revell B-17G 'Little Miss Mischief'

Probably my best build for 2013 and the best competition result of any kit I've built. She took Best in show at the Daymns Hall Show in August 2013. I researched LMM for this build and here is the concise version of my findings: "Lt [...]

1:32 Revell Lynx Mk.88

1:72 Airfix Kittyhawk

This is the last of my 2014 builds, and as always one of Airfix's new tools and a joy to build. Finished with the kit decals and using Tamiya paints.

1:72 adM Industrial Building

Another one from 2014, one of adM's range of resin kit building that I put together and painted for a future diorama, done at a time when my model making 'mojo' had taking a vacation so did this to kick start my brain. Painted an weather [...]

1:72 Airfix Bae Hawk T.1

Another of my builds from 2014 and another Airfix. Yet another gem of a kit, finished with the kit decals and painted with Tamiya X-18 then vanished with Klear/Future
