Lifetime interest in airplanes and modelling - not always together as I've been into ship modelling and currently have an '0' gauge model railway as well as the planes! And a lovely, very understanding, wife! I am a professional engineer in the "day job" so I really enjoy the building side as well as the flying.
I'm a member of a great club based on the Wirral in the NW where, as well as my own flying, I am an instructor. I very much enjoy introducing new flyers to this wonderful hobby and one of my reasons for supporting this forum is the excellent work it does helping beginners.
What do I fly? Well anything fixed wing I can get my hands on basically! My current favourite is an Sbach 342 which I love flying - so responsive and precise. By background I'm very much an IC flyer, but lately have been very into electric power. Recently I found myself at the field with 4 models - all electric! I've even been known to fly the odd 2m powered glider!
As I say I enjoy building and usually have at least one project on the go as a build blog. The current project is Tony Nijhuis's Typhoon which is proving to be a very enjoyable build so far. On top of that I have particpated in all the Mass Build projects so far and as a Mod help to administer the scheme.
