I am a mechanical engineer living in Wangen, Germany, with my wife and 6 green iguanas. We also have an adult son and an adult daughter.
I was 7 years old, when my Dad took me to a Sikorsky CH-37 helicopter of the U.S. Army that had made a forced landing nearby in 1969. This impressive experience of my youth led to a deep interest in helicopters and when I later served in the German Army I came in close touch with the CH-53G which further strengthened my passion for helicopters.
I built plastic models since the 70s until I switched to R/C helicopters in the late 80s. Finally I made it back to plastic model building in 2019 while my son is enjoying the same hobby now. So the cycle continues!
