I live in Austria and am in my mid 50s. Started my modelers career when I was a kid at my grandfather’s workbench as probably many of you. It all began with Airfix’ Lunar Module in 1/72 back in the early 70s. Building model kits was not interesting anymore when I discovered girls and bikes. Then there were those years where the job got more important and my focus was more on my wife and beloved son. So time was rare. Some years ago, I made a restart. Over the years, this hobby has become my true passion. It really makes my (weekend) days.

Jet Age Museum in Gloucestershire

In his "On This Day" blog, David has recently shown a picture of a Gloster Typhoon, taken at Gloster Factory in 1944. Having a special remembrance to this place, I thought I could show some of my pictures from a UK (Telford/Gloucester) trip in 2[...]

Mercury Spacecraft from HORIZON MODELS 1/72

HORIZON MODELS from Australia are specialized on spacecraft from the cold war era. They produce launch systems and modules, too. The kit was a birthday surprise from my lovely wife. It also includes a stand and the Mercury logo. I built an unman[...]

Thank you for all your comments on my first article!
