scale model aircraft in plastic card
Harry Woodman ( 1929 - February 2013 ) was born in South Shields ( Tyne and Wear, England ).
He has been an ardent modeller, specialising in warships and aircraft. Harry Woodman was the first modeller to win the Class Championship Cup for a plastic model aircraft at the Model Engineering Exhibition in 1969, and for a plastic ship model in 1973. Not only first with these two models but so far the only modeller to achieve this distinction.
A well - known author and widely respected researcher, he was a founder member of Cross & Cockade International. Harry Woodman passed away peacefully in his sleep after a short illness.
