Biography

I was introduced to scale modelling by my class fellow Shahzad Asif in 1985, while we were in school. My first model was a P-51 in 1/72 by Monogram. Initially, I made most of my models in 1/72 since that was the only scale available in Lahore at that time. The choice was limited to whatever kit I could lay my hands on. When Hobby Lobby opened its outlet in Lahore, it was like Allah has answered my prayers!!
Eventually, progressed to 1/48 scale and sticking to it. My era of choice in aircraft models is WWII up to Post Cold War jets (strictly no Stealth). A kit hoarder by nature………aren't we all.
I am a Restaurateur by profession.
