|Eric Chu: Going back in time, was building models always more than a hobby? What had you planned on doing after school?
Martin Bower: I knew, as Iíve already said , that I wanted to be a Special Effects model maker from about the age of 8. I was a total failure at school & thoroughly hated it! Nobody really encouraged me, except my mum & her father (my grandpa) They were always very supportive. But sadly my dad was a city financier & never really knew where I was coming from. I remember the first day my models came on TV, he was too busy to even come & see them & I was always sad about that. He died 3 years ago & I think at the end he had finally realised that what I did was ďa proper jobĒ!
Guys who put so much effort into their work are often misunderstood.
