About betheyn
I started modelling in the 70's with my Dad building Airfix aircraft kits. The memory of my Dad and I building and painting a Avro Lancaster on the kitchen table will always be with me. I then found a friend who enjoyed building models, and between us I think we built the entire range of 1/72 Airfix kits. Then one Xmas my Dad bought me a Tamiya 1/35 tank and that opened my eyes to a whole new world. Reaching my teens modelling took a back seat to going down the pub, and then starting a family I lost touch of the art of sticking plastic together. Now I'm in my forties and the kids have grown up a bit I've been bitten by the bug again. I now model just about anything that takes my fancy, but I seem to be on a painting figures phase at the moment.
