I grew up in the 60s in the UK, and remember clearly building an Airfix Mosquito with my Dad after seeing '633 Squadron'. My pocket money used to go on bagged FROG and Airfix kits from Woolworths or the local newsagents. In 1973 a friend introduced me to IPMS Lancashire/Cheshire, and I was blown away by the models I saw on the tables; from then on I aspired to emulate the same standards. My interests are varied, although I prefer 1/72 aircraft, especially biplanes and between-the-wars subjects. I dabble a bit in armour, too.

In the early 90s I emigrated to Calgary, Canada. I'm married with two adult kids, and two grandsons.
