Hello all,

I am James Charlton been modelling around 3 years now have got better over time like a fine wine!

Mostly working on Modern Day armour - Huge Meng Fan members might know me as the Group Admin for the Meng Model Appreciation Society on Facebook.

Currently working to get better with builds and also painting with the airbrush using Mission Models Paint (MMPUS) and a Harder and Steenbeck Evolution CR Plus with a 0.4 needle for all my work. Badger Primer all the way when not using MMP.

Next 12 months plans are to possibly have a new Mancave alongside this I would like to complete a few more builds. My 7 year old son is also slowly coming into the hobby learning the basics of gluing parts, sanding and Airbrushing at present.

Hi Alistair,

Thank you for the welcome that is some seriously stunning work there! Love the weathering and the work on the PE! Done some more on the M-ATV this evening she's got about another 4 hours and then I think I will be calling her finished been a real learning curve and baptism of fire but learnt a lot :P

Hallo James,

A big welcome from me too from Bamberg Germany. WIP is looking fine And can't wait to see it finished. My two sons never had an interest in the hobby. They look at my models with working parts I've made or etch I've added and think dad has lost his marbles. Have fun!!!

Hello all,

Thank you for the welcome Pickle will be taking on kits in the near future think he will be starting off with a Meng Pick Up truck as a joint build with me and then going from there.

I think next up for me will be the Hobbyboss M4 Tractor which I have picked up at a very low price

Look forward to chatting more and of course showing the finished M-ATV
