"I have been a Lego buff since I was a toddler, and my father and I spent a lot of time creating a variety of models, rockets, air planes, buildings and vehicles. I was able to recognise a lot of the air plane tails, and my mother helped me compile them in PowerPoint slides so I could identify them," Gumber told Gulf News. Gumber can now easily recognise about 300 of airplane tails.
