About Rowan Baylis (Merlin)

I've been modelling for about 40 years, on and off. While I'm happy to build anything, my interests lie primarily in 1/48 scale aircraft.

Cheers everyone! It was a blast to do! And apologies for the video quality - that's something I'll work on for future (real) reviews. Hi Andy - Sorry, I couldn't resist. (Actually, no, I'm not. ) At least you've got some nice weather ahead this week to do your turn. I'll e-mail the link to the others, because I know they wouldn't want to miss their chance. Kate Bush too (somehow or other). Wouldn't it be great if she did it?... you never know - miracles do happen... All the best Rowan

Hi again I've challenged Katie via her website. Whether she ever gets to know about it is another thing, but we can live in hope. And, yes, Fred - she's been a huge influence on everything I've tried to do musically since her first album blew me away back in the '70s. She's arguably the most imaginative artist of our era. All the best Rowan

Thanks Rowan you are such a kind person. While I am home alone it is difficult to film myself takeing a well tempered shower (actually it was a bath and it was that shor..err cold), so we must postpone this a bit, but nonetheless I donated 20 Euro to one of the German eqivalents, namely the ALS-Ambulanz of the Charit&ecaute; ( LINK ) all the best Steffen

Too funny. I liked the critique of the bucket!

Cheers Brian What else could I do? - I couldn't resist turning Jim's ice bucket challenge into a rehearsal for possible video reviews one day. Give me a camera and an audience and I'll have a go - even if I know there's an ice-cold soaking at the end of it! Seriously, the main thing is that it's all in a good cause. All the best Rowan
