My name is Wayne, im 39 from Bilston, UK.

After a couple of first time builds back in 2007, I returned to modelling in 2012 starting with the Moebius Mk.II Colonial Viper & various other projects which included Airwolf & Blue Thunder, then the unenvieble task of the 1/400 Revell 100th Anniversary Titanic.

Since then I have built many models ranging from sci-fi, military vehicles & aircraft, tv & movie & autosport models.

Over the last 3 years I have picked up many new techniques, from using spray cans, weathering, washes, but I still rely on painting by hand.

The most recent model which I have just completed was the AMT Anakin Skywalker Podracer.

I do follow a few of your members on youtube, the most noteable is Quaralane, who has given me so much help and inspiration over the last 3 years.

My passion for making models is as equal as my passion for WWE wrestling, to which I have attended events along with living a life dream of attending Wrestlemania 28 in Miami back in 2012.

I face a lot of ridicule for at work every day as im told I should get a proper hobby instead of making sad & boring toy models and watching men-in-pants.

Im married to my wife Donna & our 2 sons Darren (20) & Wayne (19).

You can see my builds on my youtube channel.

Thank you for having me.

Now a picture of me to scare your kids with.
