My addiction to aviation started in November 1966. I was just 3 months old, when my dad – then an Officer at Hellenic Air Force – and my mom decided to put me in a C-47 for one of the marvellous short flights offered free to the public during the annual celebration of the Hellenic Air Force. Since then I’ve been addicted to anything that flies, with a preference to military airplanes (my still active – but soon finishing – career as Colonel Aeronautical Engineer in Hellenic Air Force and a flight offered to me with a Mirage 2000 – a test flight with “clean” aircraft, reaching Mach 1.6 and 53,000 ft – only boosted this addiction). I started modeling at about the age of 9, when my dad brought me an 1/72 F-5 sealed in a plastic bag and it was a love affair ever since. Had two long breaks from my beloved hobby, being active – hopefully for good – the last three years. I have two very young wonderful boys, who consume most of my “free” time; still I try to find a couple of hours every day or so to sink in my modeling paradise. I am less than mediocre modeler; I just have fun building my models. I mostly build out of the box with a little scratchbuilding. In love with motorbikes, passionate with Pink Floyd and rock music, in love and passionate with life in general. I love seeing people smiling and do whatever I can to achive this. Addicted to reading from modeling sites (especially from the wonderful Modelingmadness, but also Cybermodeler, Hyperscale, Internet Modeler….the list goes on) and feeling grateful to be a member of iModeler! This is such a fantastic site, with all these amazing guys and their beautiful work I admire – an elusive goal for me!
