Chris King - Returned to modelling in May 2009 when wife bought me my first submarine model @ U534 exhibit in Liverpool, some 300 plus submarines later in the stash. I primarily build Submarines in a multitude of scales, other modelling interest are Babylon 5, 2001 a space odyssey and the Batman movies (figures and vehicles) with the odd sci-fi figure models as well.
Originally started building models at the age of 7 (1969), the airfix series one spitfire being the first, built aircraft then concentrated on sci-fi models til started work, then took up building Helicopters, in 1983 entered 1/32 AH-1W supercobra conversion in the Model engineering exhibition at Wembley. First wife lost me my stash of helicopter kits so lost interest around 1992.
Current wife's motto regarding my submarines is "the bigger the better - size matters". LOL
