Durham lad? I envy you, being not too far from the museum at York!
Feel free to post what you've done so far, we all love seeing interesting modeling.
Personally, I read the UK-based magazines almost as much as the US ones. Not that I model UK-based subjects,
but I have noticed there is a totally different take on parts of the hobby on your side of the pond,
and lots of things us colonials can learn from.
