Default New member from the UK

Hello to you all.

I live in Norfolk, England and am just getting a workshop set up at home. I was looking for ideas and inspiration on the internet when I came across this forum with an easy to read layout and a membership that comes across as a very friendly bunch with some great ideas and skills aplenty.
My main enjoyment has been building and flying r/c model aircraft but I am interested in many types of model building.

I inherited an ML7 from my dad in the mid 70ís and started to turn up a few bits and pieces. During a spell of redundancy in the 80,s I embarked on a six month capstan operating course which taught me some of the basics. I made a start on a Vega 9cc glow that was published in the Model Engineer magazine. I also bought a milling machine from a retiring engineer nearby. Then came marriage and a family so everything took a back seat until now.
I have moved the lathe to its new home but have the challenge of moving the mill still to come.
I am very keen to get going on the Vega again but have a few questions to ask before I do.
I have enjoyed reading all the stuff on here and hope I can contribute something worthwhile when I get sorted.

Regards Peter.

ps, I messed up my first go at posting this by trying to attach photo's. I know how much you all like to see some so sorry there are none to look at now but if this goes ok thanks to rake 60 for the help in finally getting this posted.
