Hi,I am based in Warrington in the north west of England and usualy build 1/48 scale aircraft ,generaly WW2 and coldwar so from1939 up to around 1975 (ish !),my current main interests are anything Israeli and British fleet air arm. If anyone is interested in swapping information please feel free to get in touch.
I am a 1966 vintage and work in the Chemicals industry which is boring and usualy involves keeping some pretty nasty stuff under lock and key.
I am also a biker and am into the great outdoors, and good old fashioned rock n roll,the louder the better.

Tamiya “Follow me ” Willys Jeep 1/48

The kit is very easy to assemble and quite well detailed , it makes a nice addition to any WW2 U.S. aircraft. I have seen lots of pictures of these follow me jeeps adorned with home made timber structures and saucy artwork to keep the attention [...]

Bell X-1, 1/32 Revell

I bought this kit at a club day just as everyone was packing up ,why ?,because I didn't want to go home empty handed and instantly regretted it ,so anyway it came home with me and sat on the shelf of hasty decisions for a while while I completed[...]

Eduard Mk.9e Spitfire 1/48 Royal Egyptian Airforce

This is the Eduard kit and to be honest I found it a bit of a pain in the arse to build, the wing to fuselage fit was dreadful requiring the removal of about 1mm of plastic on each side ,the kit generally was what I would call pointlessly parts [...]
