    'Ello,
    I'm 'spike7451',I'm a 42year young Englishman who's been into modelling for as long as I can remember.d'oh!
    I served in the Royal Air Force from 1984 to 1996 as an Armourer worked on Nimrod MR2's at Kinloss before being posted to Bruggen in Germany in in the late 80's,where I worked on Tornado GR1's.
    Now out of the mob under the options for change cr** in 96,I'm now in the Telecomms industry,setting up my own business at the present since redundency again last Christmas I'm also in the TA Reserves.
    My late Father joined the RAF himself during WWII originally as WOP/AG on Wellingtons then Lancasters before going thru pilot training however 90% of my Father's war is unknown to me as he never talked about the was.The only thing he did say was Dresden should never have happened,but at the time we were at war.
    Rrgards,
