    Greetings from Leyland in Lancashire, England. I have been making model figures for some twelve years now. I usually concentrate on Napoleonics and Zulu Wars stuff, but have been known to venture into WW2. I also enjoy making 1/35 scale British trucks.I

    Since leaving the Army in 1998, I work as a delivery driver. I am a member of the Army Rumour Service (ARRSE) Modelling Forum and moderate that forum.

    Thanks Richie, As you may remember, I have purchased a number of your excellent figures; mainly characters from the film Zulu. I am currently making Corporal William Allen, but am desperate to get my hands on a 120mm model of Commissar Dalton and Corporal Schiess.

    Thanks to all who have welcomed me here. I look forward to creating something under your guidance rather than my fumbling. I have uploaded a couple of albums so you can see the level I am at (is there a level lower than apprentice?)
