    I've been a part of the forum for a little while now and have never said or done much but now i have changed address i am getting settled, online more and will be doing some builds from my vast collection (though i lack the space to display much) and felt the time was right to introduce myself and to get to know others.
    My name is Michael or Mike for short and 38 y/o, i've not built many kits since being a kid so consider myself a total beginner as i lack alot of skills.
    The main subjects i will be modelling in future will be WW2 aircraft and as i get better at modelling i plan on doing the vehicles used on WW2 airfields for diorama purposes.
    I already have had the pleasure of meeting Karl (Rochie) and selling/exchanging a couple of kits that i would never build for ones i am more likely to and i must say he did a good job on that Revell/Dragon JU88A-4.
    I now live in Brandon, Suffolk and would really appreciate contact / friend requests from people local although everyones welcome.
    Happy modelling
    Mike
