I was born in Brazil. Like many children in the 1970's I built ship and plane models, mostly from Revell (the only brand available there). After many years I took the hobby again, as an extension of my interest in history. I currently live in Melbourne, Australia.

For my first contribution to iModeller, I attach pictures of my Panther, which was one of the first 1/48 models I built. I found this kit very easy to assemble, with almost no fit issues. What small issues there were, could be easily [...]
