In Print 2001-2013
By 2001 I was writing for Ian Young again, now the editor of Military Machines International. These articles were either reports on military exercises or information and descriptions on specific military vehicles in keeping with the theme of the magazine. These articles were very occasionally punctuated with modelling articles for Military Modelcraft International. My most recent modelling article came about when David Grummitt saw my Char B bis on Missing Lynx Braille Scale Forum and invited me to write it up for Military Modelcraft. The highpoint of my writing achievements came in 2009 when Jochen Vollert the owner of Tankograd publications agreed to publish my Salisbury Plain Training Area title in Tankograd's British Special series.
