"Been a modeller all my life. Started as a kid during the war, making solid wood models, then progressed to Free Flight, including good old Frog...Flies Right off the Ground... In Singapore in the mid-50s played around with single channel R/C with a set that came from New Zealand. Then plastics appeared and I was hooked.

Having aviation as part of my DNA, have concentrated on that, although have done the odd sci-fi, tank, motorcycles, buses from Airfix, etc.

In the last few years, have given up on 72nd, except airliners and bombers, since I can't see the parts nor yet handle them. Am having fun doing What Ifs?, and trying to reduce the stash in my Polystyrene Pit. Being 72 years old, I calculate that if I never buy another kit, I will be 120 before I do them all..."
