Now I'm 64 years old (2022), almost 50 years as a scale modeler. I have built mainly 1/72 scale FAB (Força Aérea Brasileira), but I love really WWII aviation in general. I've been in a "crisis" of nostalgia (LOL), that´s why I have built or restored some old models that bring me back so much good memories.

I'm a RC model airplane "pilot" too.

I live in Natal - RN, Brazil
