About me:
Retired kiwi, trained as engineer but worked mainly in product marketing in auto and agricultural equipment industries. Traveled extensively, lived in NZ, USA, Australia & now Italy. Started modeling at age 8-9 with Airfix Spitfires & BF-109's in plastic bags, 2 shillings-11 pence each!
My collection, built up over 50 or so years, consists of approx. 100 completed kits and another 190 unbuilt, plus some diecasts. Primarily military aircraft in 1/200, 1/144, 1/72, 1/48 & 1/32 scales; also a few AFV's and cars.

Too many kits to list have crashed & burned (metaphorically!) during the numerous relocations over the years.

Got back into modelling as a consequence of reading Tom Clancy's "Red Storm Rising", building a Dragon Mig-29 in 1:144 scale purchased from Hannants in London during a business trip.

Was an active member of Manawatu Scale Model Club during the period I lived in Palmerston North (New Zealand, 1990-1997).
