42 years of age, 36 of which I spent glueing plastic parts together. Living near Vienna, Austria. Military history buff, mainly US since the 20th century.
Built tanks and vehicles exclusively for all but 20 years, got into planes and then ships. And sooner or later will attempt to paint figures without sucking at it. Yeah…
Have been working in advertising and web design my whole career, I recently switched from producing stuff to teaching stuff, training people in the fields of project management and teamwork.

Thunder Model Scammell Pioneer Tank Transporter – Build Review, Part 3

The Trailer Unit As usually, I started by gluing all the multi-part assemblies to speed up the process of seam filling and not have to wait for filler to dry later on. There are quite some seams to deal with, […]
