Profile:
Flying with Swindon Model Aero Club since 2000 I have a preference for War Birds with a selection of WW1,WW2, Korean and Vietnam war aircraft. Interested in large models, I am a member of the Large Model Association and own and fly a 1/5 scale Douglas A1 Skyraider and have a part share in a 1/3 scale P51 Mustang.
 
I run a garage in Swindon and find model flying and socialising with other members a great stress reliever after a hard week. If you have the time to build your own model you get great satisfaction from seeing it completed and flying. If time is tight there are many Almost Ready To Fly models to get you flying quickly but these can be detailed to make them stand apart from the crowd. There are many different disciplines at the club from gliders to warbirds so whether you prefer aerobatics, scale flying or calm evening flying, there is something for everyone and always help at hand from friendly club mates.
