Born in 1982, I am French, and I live in Nancy, a nice medium-size city of this beautiful country.
As far as I remember, I have always been passionate about vehicules, and especially planes.
As soon as I could, I became a private pilot, to fly whenever I wanted, and to be able to share the pleasure of flying with my wife and 2 chlildren.
I began to build model kits when I was a little kid, and stopped when I was 17-18 years old.
I started again the hobby in the beginning of 2018, finishing an Academy F-14A I started to build almost 20 years before…
Since then, I build almost only Spitfires and Mirage III, the planes I find the most beautiful, and the 1/72 scale become my favorite.

Mirage IIIO HPM 1/72

Here is one small Mirage III, the O version used by the Royal Australian Air Force. This is a reconnaissance version, with cameras under the nose cone (barely visible on the photos). The model is in 72nd scale, made by HPM. A nice kit with some [...]
