Born in 1972, I have been building aircraft models since I was 10. I've done many other things in my life (usually centered around aircraft and flying...) but the plastic models have been the one constant thing that has always been there, sometimes in the background but I have never given it up. Nowadays I would consider modelling my "main hobby". Other things I enjoy are road cycling, photography and jazz music (I was once the world's worst big band trumpeter...).
