About Me

Serving Chief Engineer in the Merchant Marine. Can't imagine how the rest of you manage to live your lives doing 9 to 5 jobs!


Started building Airfix kits at about 7 years old and gradually branched out into all the other aspects of the painting and modelling hobby. Tried to give it up when first married in a vain attempt to convince wonderful wife that I was some sort of "normal" person... that was doomed to failure!
