About tinbanger
I started building model aircraft with my brother and dad at about 7 years old(Yellow single engine float plane). Born in England so mostly built Airfix and Frog Kits! Moved over the pond in 1979. Main interest any type/era aircraft. Tinbanger call sign comes from my sheetmetal days. I am also a licenced Industrial Mechanic/Millwright. I work at the Royal Canadian Mint in Ottawa. As a new grandfather i look forward to introducing my grand daughter to model making!
