Currently retired. I have always liked modeling. From my childhood I made paper models of airplanes and boats until I started with plastic modeling. My first model was a 1/72 Me-262, since then I have made a large number of planes, 1/72 and 1/87 AFVs and 1/700 boats. Currently with ships in 1/700 and some more in 1/350. I have also done AFV in 1/35.
I am fascinated by current modeling, with photoetched, small details and different techniques.

Uss Fort Worth – LCS-3 – 1/350 – Trumpeter

A nice kit to build. It has several sheets with photoetched to complete the model. Perhaps the most complicated is the small pieces that detail the deck lights. I have made some small improvements to the main mast and the boats. I have followed [...]

Uss Lassen – DDG82 – 1/700 – Hobby Boss

A nice to build Hobby Boss model. It seems simple because of the shapes of the ship but in reality it hides a lot of work. The decals of the cover are painted. I have used this option because although it represents more work it is a better finis[...]
