Chris Mckee - I have been modelling since I was 14, with the usual gap for women, beer and children. I enjoy building models subjects that others aren't, so no F16’s or Spitfires (yet). I like Israeli armour 1/35 and 1/48 aircraft, great camouflage patterns. I also model RAF aircraft from the 1950’s onwards, nearly all jets. I do however, take time out to build cars, ships Sci-Fi or whatever takes my fancy and I move around the scales: 1/48; 1/35; and 1/144. Modelling is a passion and with joining a club comes social and modelling events, so never a dull moment.

Tamiya 1/35 Humvee converted to an Israeli standard with resin from Legend.
