I have been making models since I was 7 or 8 (don’t remember exactly) when a neighbour gave me a kit for Christmas one year. Don’t think my mom ever forgave him :-).
It soon developed into wandering into Wooly’s with my paper round money and picking up this weeks bagged Airfix kit from the rotating stand (those of a certain age will relate to this), taking it home and have it finished by the afternoon. Paint? What’s the point? They didn’t last that long.
I’ve probably tried most genres over the years so my builds tend to be anything that I like the look of, any scale, make or style. Having said that, most of my builds currently seem to have a UK bias.
