About me

Gender Male
Occupation Retired
Location Ipswich, Suffolk, United Kingdom
Introduction I used to be a modeller of railways, ships, and figures, but stopped some 20/30 years ago. With retirement in 2012 I've revitalised my interest in wargaming (Featherstone/Grant/Lawford-Young) and am building up forces accordingly, more or less from scratch. A railway is planned, as are assorted model ships. I also have an interest in woodwork, with a large collection of fretwork designs, some going back to the early 20th century.
Interests toy soldiers, model railways, model ships, golden age detective fiction, terry pratchett
