About magnusf
It all started with a Biggles book, one of those where he is a flying policeman... He flew an Auster of some kind. Later that year, this was in 1982 when I was 10, I got the Airfix Series 1 Auster for Christmas. Since then modelling has been my interest. It has survived RC flying, flying full scale gliders and quite a few other interests as well, all of which I don't do any longer. With a family (wife and two daughters), a house, running my own consultancy business and cramming in both road- and MTB-cycling into the scheme there isn't that much time for modelling but I try to do a bit every day (evening!). One of the great advantages of moving to a house was getting my own modelling corner. My wife has christened it "the sty".
