43 years of age, 36 of which I spent glueing plastic parts together. Living near Vienna, Austria. Military history buff, mainly US since the 20th century.
Built tanks and vehicles exclusively for all but 20 years, got into planes and then ships. And sooner or later will attempt to paint figures without sucking at it. Yeah…
Have been working in advertising and web design my whole career, I recently switched from producing stuff to teaching stuff, training people in the fields of project management and teamwork.

iModeler November Awards

Once again it is time for our monthly retrospective - a look back at some of the notable articles posted at this site during November. The past month brought the usual Telford frenzy, but more importantly lots of great articles from this commun[...]

Airfix 1/48 Gloster Meteor F.8

Here's my contribution to the "100 Years of the Royal Air Force" Group build. The Airfix kit left me with somewhat mixed feelings - on one hand it is nicely detailed and goes together well for the most part, on the other hand it suffers from a [...]

Tamiya 1/35 Matilda II

iModeler October Awards

Once again it is time for our monthly retrospective - a look back at some of the notable articles posted at this site during October. The past month was crazy, to put it mildly. With lots of new members joining our community, we set a new recor[...]

PLASMO’s KV-2 Russian Tank Abandoned in Water 1942 – Diorama 1/72

Amazing what can be done in small scale!

iModeler September Awards

Once again it is time for our monthly retrospective - a look back at some of the notable articles posted at this site during September. After the usual summer lull, we all went back to our workbenches - and this brought 131 new entries adorning[...]

Brewster F2A Buffalo Tamiya 1/48 – Aicraft Model

Another beauty by PLASMO. The old (ancient?) Tamiya kit gets a proper treatment:

All Good Things Come in Twos?

One cannot help but notice a trend in the scale modelling world: Whatever your area of interest is, chances are there are certain gaps in the lineup of available kits (unless, of course, you are into German WWII armor). These gaps are here for y[...]
