Default Hello from England!

My name's Dan, I'm originally from Ireland, but live in England now, and much like others I'm sure, I love all things Gerry Anderson.
I grew up on Stingray, Thunderbirds, and Captain Scarlet, then was introduced to Fireball XL5, Joe 90, UFO, and Space 1999 when I was a bit older by my father. While I love them all, Thunderbirds will always be my favourite (as you may have guessed from my picture).

I love admiring model kits, but I'm a bit hopeless in actually creating or making any (I more likely to glue myself to the table, or decal my hands with Spectrum symbols), I'm better though at modifications on existing models/toys (weathering, re-sculpting, repainting etc), and customizing action figures, some Anderson related.

Beyond Anderson related things, I particularly love Sci fi (anything with a good story, though specifically, all types of Star Trek, Babylon 5, Red Dwarf, and Dr Who), 60's/70's/80's Marvel/DC/2000AD comics, gardening to a degree, reading, and designing. I used to love to play music too, but I had to give it up due to my current health.

I look forward to getting to know everyone around here and learn some new skills and info, it really does look fantastic here.
