My name is Thomas Williams, I am 21 and from Wrexham, North Wales. Ever since the tender age of 10, I have been building models as a hobby. From Airfix to Tamiya, Revell to Hasegawa, and even a few Matchbox and Sword kits thrown in among the years, just to add some spice, variety and (in a way) drama to my modelling collection.
I am very lucky and privileged to be a contributor to Scale Aircraft Modelling, the leading magazine for the hobby. This is something I could have only dreamed of when I started the hobby, so to be recognised and included within a magazine of such calibre is a honour I bespoke.
I mainly specialise in Aircraft Models, but I have built a few Car, Military AFV, Boat and Figure kits in the past, so feel free to enquire about details.
I can build any scale, to whatever requirements you have, such as weathering. From a fresh out of the paint shop finish to a battered, worn, dirty, battle hardened or abandoned look, I can make that vision a reality. I can even put it as a diorama, just to add to the spectacle this hobby delivers on a regular basis.

Getting the project to me couldn't be easier. Essentially, you contact me with details of the kit and any aftermarket products you have purchased and would like me to build, and I will give you my address for you to send the project to. It might be easier to include my name in the delivery address ( obviously after contacting me first to set up a rapport, otherwise my garage will become full of random kits from nowhere! ) when you make the purchase, so feel free to enquire what is the best method for you when you ask for my address, I'm sure I'll be able to help.
During the project, I will send regular updates to yourself so you can see how the project is coming along. Sometimes I even post updates on various modelling forums I am a member of, but if you would like me to keep the project away from prying eyes, do please feel free to mention this or for details of said forums.
With regards to sending the finished model back, I will take the utmost care to pack it safely and securely, but it might be best to leave weapons, undercarriage and any other fiddly bits off the model during the transit back, as these may be damaged during posting, until the owner receives the kit safely at it's destination and glue the items on themselves.
I am open to using couriers, or if very local to me, personally delivering the finished model to yourself!
