I've just joined the Forum, and as this is my first post, I thought I'd introduce myself.
I reside in North London, but am a 'Geordie-in-Exile', originally hailing from North Shields. As seems usual with the modelling demographic these days I won't see 50 again. By some miracle I am still gainfully employed so don't get enough time for either building or sailing these days.
My main area of interest is scale/classic sail, and it all started with a birthday gift of a Triang yacht round about 1960, which was sailed at Tynemouth lake, wish I still had it as they're worth a few bob these days, very collectable. I started 'real' model boating building a couple of Aerokits, remember them!, and then building from plans, remember the 'MAP Plans Handbook', and I've been at it, off and on, ever since.
I'm still getting to grips with the Forum, so I hope this post turns out alright!
