My name is Jason David Bettis and I have been modelling since the autumn/winter of 1992 when I purchased and built with my Step Dad Adrian the old Tamiya 1/35 Sd.kfz.223 to amateur standards.  My modelling standards have fluctuated from the sublime to the absolute ridiculous ever since and I am never surprised by my ability to take an absolute triumph and make it into a complete and utter disaster. The inspiration for this blog came to me after I was handed a kit and asked to review it in the car park of the international centre Telford in November 2016 during Scale Model World, I’m not sure what I was thinking of at the time agreeing to such foolishness however every cloud has a silver lining I guess. Once I had started to build it I realised that there was more to this wonderful hobby than just building painting and showing off your handy work and my blog was born. In the cold light of day I am just an average modeller doing my best to surprise myself and to try and build to the best of my ability.
