Thought I might join the fun!
Born 1st November 1961 in Falkirk, Scotland. Lived here all my life. Married to Rhona for 14 years, 1 four year old son called Andrew and a 7 year old Cairn Terrier called Cindy!
Began building in the mid 1960s under the influence of my Dad who is a pattern maker to trade. He was also an officer in the Argyll and Sutherland Highlanders.
I am a Special Educational Needs teacher currently working with kids who have emotional and behavioural difficulties - building models helps me relax!
Apart from the models, my other specific interests are local and Scottish history, and aviation history as it relates to Scotland. I have written on local history - that's why I'm standing with Tony Robinson at a 13th Century Sxottish knight's grave! I was advising on a televison programme about William Wallace his company was producing. Didn't say "I have a cunning plan" once!
Or at least they think they do! My ex and I had one, Pfeisty, for 15 years! Thats him in the box, with our Westie Casey. Both gone now these many years. We've also had another Westie, Bixby, and a Scottie, Roddy. All bonny lads, but Pfeisty was the best of 'em all!
