Scale & Stand-off Scale models  have always been my favourites,

                                                        So why have you never seen my name in the F4c lists of European or World Championship contestants?                           
                                                                
Being a teacher, my commitments prevent me attending these a week-long competions and my princepal, then,
                                                 would not allow me one week time-off, even not on unpaid basis!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

      My love affair with WO II Warbirds,
      (and especially the american Bomber B-17 Flying Fortress) began many years ago.
      As a young boy, building and flying Free-Flight gliders in the late 50ties and early    
      60ties, I dreamed that I would build some day a large Flying Fortress.

 

      At that time it seemed like an impossible dream, but it was just a matter of time!
      With expierence gained, later in the seventies, on RC Models including Multi-engined,
      and flying F3A aerobatic contests, it was time to put the dream into Reality.
