Les Clancy - I began modelling as a child in the late 50's, early 60's,cutting my teeth on Airfix kits like everyone else. There was a gap of a few years when I discovered girls and alcohol, but I got back into it after getting married in 1973. My first serious model was the Tamiya 1/25th Panther, followed by the Airfix 1/24th Stuka. (This was when you still got a swastika to put on the tail). I then made both tanks and aircraft in 1/35 and 1/48 respectively, but my interest now is almost exclusively British armour of the Second World War in 1/35th. I attend as many military and model shows as I can and get much enjoyment from this hobby.
