Author Info


Born in the mid 30’s in the North of England, just before WWII, and left school with a Secondary Modern Education at age 15, to work in our family’s home-based scale model building business.   Grew up in Salford with my older sister and brother, loved model building for as long as I can remember, and have a passion for WWII aircraft and British steam trains.

Worked for Bassett-Lowke Model Engineers in Manchester and London before serving 3 years with the Royal Air Force.   Immigrated to Canada with my family in the late 60’s and re-establishing the Brinkworth Model building business, building Architectural, Engineering, and Marine models here in Vancouver BC.

Early 90’s we established a firm connection in the world of motor-racing, and for the next 26 years, we were almost fully committed to the custom building of hand built Limited-Edition Presentation models for the racing team Owners, Drivers and Sponsors.

Now in 2020, very happily retired in Langley, British Columbia, Canada with my wife Elza, and two sons, Barry and Bill.   Still building models, but mostly for my own personal pleasure.
