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.

Over the years, this hobby has become my true passion. It really makes my (weekend) days.
