My first recollection of model making was when me and my dad made an Airfix 1/72 Hawker Hurricane in the mid 1970's the one moulded in silver plastic, I managed to paint it a horrible gloss green camouflage, but it looked great to an 8 year old. As the years progressed my modelling skills got better, although I was still brush painting my models.
Moving forward and getting into my late teenage years, model became less and less, and in the case of most modellers life changed with meeting girls and going to the pub.
It was not until later in life did I fall back into model making, but since then a lot had changed, and the kits were far superior than what they were back in the 1970's, I also got myself an airbrush and other tools I never had that improved my modelling skills.
My main subjects are Vac-form kits and especially Post war Vickers aircraft, I have also delved into the 3D side of things designing and printing my own wheels and other things that I can add to my models.
We will see what the next 10 years bring to model making, but it looks very positive.
