John Tucker - I started modelling Airfix 2-bob kits when I was about 8 years old, but stopped when I left school, started my apprenticeship and discovered motorcycles, beer and girls. I restarted modelling after I got married, but my production rates are not high, what with kids and a second job in the Territorial Army.
I mainly model British Airways and predecessor company airliners in 1/144 and 1/72 scale, post-war RAF and FAA aircraft in 1/72 and prototype and experimental British aircraft, again in the one true 1/72 scale. I do sometimes delve into something different and then recover my senses.
I have been a member of IPMS(UK) since 1981 and I belong to their Airliner SIG. I'm also a member at IPMS Farnborough and have attended the Nationals since the mid 80's. My day (and night) job is as an aircraft engineer with British Airways at Heathrow.
