About Us

My modelling experience covers more then 40 years when I started building model aircraft in the 1970’s by collecting the tokens from cereal boxes.

Over the years as I gained various modelling skills the models became more complex, my interests changed towards military modelling and now navel models.

I have always had an interested in engineering and combined this with models that I have built over the years.

During my working life I have been lucky enough to work in a state of the art design studios which has allowed me to use various types of design software and photographic equipment, I can now draw upon these skills and use them to create a range of detailed models for the discerning ship modeller.
