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.
