Andy has been building scale plastic models for over 20 years, since receiving his first kit as a child. His favorite genre is World War 2 airplanes, but he is also a sports-car enthusiast. He is the creator, author and designer of Model Car Tips and Model Airplane Building. He builds radio controlled aircraft as well.
Andy promotes this hobby for its therapeutic value, and its development in kids of manual dexterity, reading comprehension, patience and perseverance.
