More about me:

72 year old  retired Physics  teacher . BC Prof was the name give to me  by  a group of 6th form students  as an alternative to Captain Planet   given to me by Graham Swann  before he became a world class  spinner .

Started off aged about 8 with an interest in model aircraft  progressed to control line . Interest in model engineering came  from an engineer  from British  Railways  who  had  Model Engineer  magazines  from the 1940 s onwards .  Enjoyed  metalwork for one year  at the start of Secondary School  but  could not continue with it as I did all three sciences  so self taught "engineer?"

Current interest is in 5" gauge live steam .
