Michael Lomax

Like most modellers, I first started building kits in my early teens. It was the usual range of models, aircraft, armour and the odd car. There was a paticular interest in German armour, with a small group of us at school taking up WWII wargaming. After surviving spilling red enamel paint on my parents living room carpet, the usual thing happened in my late teens. I discovered beer, music and girls. But a couple of 1/24th scale trucks did get built in between the partying and work.

Jump forward a few years and once I had settled down, I rediscovered the modelling bug, but on the model railway scene instead. I spent about fifteen years with model railway scene, being involved with Dunstable MRC and working mainly in 'N' Gauge (2mm scale). Then browsing on EBay one day, I saw a Tamiya kit of the Nissan Skyline R34 GT-R. As this is one of my favourite cars, I decided to buy it and with further searching came the discovery of the detailing accessories. How things had moved on since I last buld a kit. The bug had well and truely got its claws into me and a selection of various kits have been stockpiled in my workshop.

Then in September 2008, I visited Milton Keynes Scale Model Club for the first time bringing a selection of my models. I immediately enjoyed the atmosphere of the members (and the Newcastle Brown) and made the decision that night to join up. Since that night, with the encouragement of the club, I have started going to model shows and enter some of my work into the competitions at these shows.

Other examples of my completed work can be found on my website and current ongoing projects can be found on my blog site using the following links.

"Now I must admit, instruction sheets are only for a guide.
So I never follow them when I'm building a model and head off on my own direction.
But this is sometimes my downfall when I find that this part should have been fitted earlier!"
