Approaching 50 I have been an avid modeller since I was young, of Radio Controlled vehicles such as tanks, helicopters, cars and trucks. Always with an eye for detail and a clean build, particularly with hiding wiring etc.

I had built some of the best models out there including a couple of Henseleit Heli's and all the Tamiya full radio tanks, and was after something more challenging and thought kit cars might be the way forward.


I started by building an Exocet from an MX5 donor which went very well and gave me loads of education.

Next up this Cobra, and definitely another one soon after....
