41 years of age, 35 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.
