About Me

I joined this club in 1988 and started with a glider, moved on to engines and then quickly to RC scale which is my preference; mostly large scale, but I have become realistic about the building effort that I put into a model. Less molded detail and more painted.

My preferred era of subjects is the Golden Era ending with the great piston engined fighters of WW2. Having said that, a jet is on the cards

In the past I have been a committee member of this club, and heavily involved with RC Scale at National level through the SIG.

How long have you been flying or modelling aircraft

My first kit was a Keilcraft rubber powered Hawker Hurricane when I was 9. I have been a modeller ever since, and began flying R/C about 1990. Like all hobbies, I have had spells away from it, but my love of aircraft keeps bringing me back.

I have been involved with model aircraft since the early 1980's when I got back into after a dabble when I was a young lad. Other sports and hobbies took over.
