I’m actually not a particularly big drinker but ‘do’ like Heineken Export – long way round we used to get a ‘crappy’ version in the UK and Export was the variant to seek out – it kind of stuck when they scrapped the crappy UK version and just put out the ‘premium’ version …

Well, as the blogs identity started to evolve I knew I wanted this – Voltron, was a self imposed ‘moniker’ I love Japanese Robots and saw it stenciled on the back of a 75th Rgr/160th SOAR helicopter tailgate, so I took that …
