About firstcircle
Earliest model memory is a Super Sabre my grandmother bought for me around 1972. Have always dabbled in painting and making things, and rediscovered doing that with plastic in 2008. Vowed then to complete the 30 year old stash, and have made some progress. Hobby goes hand in hand with BBC Radio 3's evening schedule.

My Awards


:
Ancient Airfix: Modellers who complete their model within the time period of the campaign will be awarded the Ancient Airfix ribbon
Braille Battlefield Award: This award signifies the person that receives it has completed the requirements of the Braille Battlefield Campaign. The symbolism of the award is that the 'BB' is not only an acronym for the campaign name but also a small weapon projectile; thereby small scale. The arrows represent unit movement as might appear on a military map.
Matchbox AFV Nostalgia: This award signifies completion of the Matchbox AFV Nostalgia II Campaign
Matchbox Nostalgia Campaign Ribbon: The prestigious MNC ribbon will be awarded to those that successfully complete the campaign requirements.
