Hello fellow modellers!
My name is Manuel, I was born in 1968 in PortugaI and work in Information Technologies.
As a modeler, main focus are airplanes on the 1/72 and 1/48 scales and military vehicles and figures in 1/35.
I always try to tell a story through my models. A famous pilot aircraft, something I saw in a photograph, a book, or somewhere else. That’s why you will find one ‘real’ photo among the others in the post. For this same reason, my models have different levels of weathering, depending on the reality they are representing.
Personally I like (and this hobby is to give us some pleasure) dirty and worned models, but I also understand that this is not always the reality and therefore these techniques are not always adequate.
In fact, making a model with a ‘normal’ wear aspect can also be challenging.
To conclude, I hope you like my stories and ask you for constructive and sincere criticisms.
