Having built models as a kid Grant got back into modelling when the EH101 helicopter kits were brought out in 2003. Building mostly 1/72nd aircraft kits of prototypes, aerobatic teams or anything colourful (ie. not weathered), Grant is currently leader of the IPMS Splash SIG (Special Interest Group) dedicated to all things designed to take-off and alight on water.
