About Us / Contact
My small company is run and based in the countryside of south east Cornwall. I am lucky to share this part of the world with my very tolerant wife; Nik (November Foxtrot), a tank full of fish and a small flock of chickens. I have occasional visits from my daughter Amy (Alpha Foxtrot) who is undecided whether I am a nerd or a geek.
I have over 30 years experience in modelling and wargaming. Starting with airfix and 1/72 as a child.
As I grew up, I took a break from modelling when I discovered girls, punk rock and beer. I was later introduced to Talisman by Games Workshop in the early 1980's and this led onto Warhammer Fantasy Battles. I have been passionate about all aspects of the modelling and gaming hobby since.
I currently play a number of games which has obviously influenced my product range: Bolt Action, Blitzkrieg Commander, War and Conquest, Mordheim, Jugula, Warmaster, Sword & Spear and have just discovered Kings of War (a real breath of fresh air for the massed fantasy ranks).....Sharpe Practice 2...has also grabbed my attention and when not designing buildings, I am painting a Napoleonic Bavarian army.
Charlie Foxtrot Models unofficially started in 1993 when I picked up my mouse and drew on CAD my first buildings for Bolt Action. Initially, the models were for my personal use however the positive reaction from friends inspired me to expand on this. I had taught Product Design for the last ten years so venturing into my own product design company seemed like the next step.Charlie Foxtrot Models was launched on 21.11.14 and products were listed on E bay. E Bay has proved to be a good start, with 100% positive ratings and excellent customer feedback. On the back of this success, I am now working full time on Charlie Foxtrot Models projects.
I have a fully fitted workshop and packaging area and the capacity and desire to expand both my business and my product range. I aim to design and make models that balance the aesthetics, playability, scale, accuracy and detail to produce a kit that I would be happy to assemble and invest time and money in myself. I try to make the kits simple and intuative to put together to ensure that modellers have a good experience. After all, modelling is meant to be fun and relaxing. The hair pulling comes with competitive gaming!
I hope you enjoy making and owning a Charlie Foxtrot Models product and are proud to place your assembled kits on the field of battle, grace your railway layout or simply place on display. I hope to meet many visitors to this site on the wargaming show circuit where I would be delighted to discuss any ideas you may have for future projects. If you cannot wait until then, please feel free to E mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org
Thanks for visiting my site,
Colin Farrant aka Charlie Foxtrot
