    Evening all. I'm Andrew a marginally-sane Scot born in Fife but living in exile on the wrong side of the Tay.

    I'm a keen modelmaker specialising in WW2, especially the fighters, and look forward to some interesting discussions.

    Thanks everyone.

    It's always nice to learn something new, pbfoot, thanks for the info. Of course, this Perth is home to the Black Watch (I used to work in the Battalion Church).
