I’ve had modelling as a hobby practically continuously since I was 8 years old. My first model was an F16 I got from my father at the age of 6. After a few years, I started to build models myself, developing skills on the go. I have no particular preference for the model type, as long as there is an interesting history to it. The constant interplay between technical skills, history and satisfaction-after-the-build is what I like about this great hobby.
