Hi, i'm Simon from Austria
I got actively back into the hobby in 2021.
Modeling has been a part of my life since I left Lego.
In between there were always a few breaks and a few years in the fantasy tabletop scene, but it never let go of me.
Before that I worked in 1/35 scale and after I got back I learned to love the 72nd scale.
Inspired by the modeler Sergey Golikov.

US International M1124 MaxxPro MRAP (1/72)
