62 years old in 2020. 43 years as a modeler. I have built mainly 1/72 scale FAB (Força Aérea Brasileira), but I love really WWII aviation in general. I am in a crisis of nostalgia (LOL). That is why I have built or restored old models that bring back many memories.
I live in Natal - RN, Brazil
I'm a member of the GPP-JG400 - Grupo de Plastimodelismo e Pesquisa JG-400.
