I have been seriously making models for around 40 odd years, yes, I’m that old
Before that I spent some time in the forces.
I make mainly 1/32 and 1/48 scale aircraft. And 1/35 scale military vehicles.
I am an admin on several Facebook groups, and a member of quite a few others.
I like all aspects of modelling from the plastic bits to going to events, shows and museums, I have been lucky enough to have some of my models published in several magazines over the years and have won in several shows, classes etc.
