I am a historian and defence specialist living in Brisbane, Australia. I am lucky enough to call my interest and passion my profession, and between 2013 and 2017, I was the resident Historian at the RAF Museum in London, UK. You can read a bit more about my professional work here. This blog is about my hobbies and the posts on this site will represent my interests in military modelling and photography. I have been modelling since 1993 and, of course, like many of us, I have had the usual break due to family, studying and growing up. However, my enjoyment of the hobby has never left me. I started off as an aircraft modeller but then moved on to armour and principally figures. I now do a bit of anything and everything. I am also a keen photographer and usually have my camera with on days out as such you will see a few posts about photography on this site as well.
