Since then he has written books on the Me 262 (Stormbird Colors), and on modelling the Bf 110, the P-47, and the P-40 (all for the Osprey Modelling series). He is also editor of HyperScale (www.hyperscale.com) an online model magazine established in 1998, and missing-lynx.com, a site dedicated to armour modelling. He also contributes regularly to a number of hobby magazines. The author lives in Australia.
