Retired German Army Armor Officer
Interested in Military History, in particular US Mechanized Forces Operations in MTO and ETO during WW II.
As a 9 year old boy I started modelling Faller 1:100 and Airfix aircraft kits. At end of the 60-ties I focused on military vehicles, when TAMIYA released tank kits, like PzKpfWg V "Panther" or PzKpfWg VI "Tiger E", in Germany.
At the mid-eighties I decided to focus on specific topics, as I learned, that "Frederick the Great" was correct with his statement:
"Who, who will defend everything, will defend nothing!"
Since then I had focused on
1. all different models of the M4, TANK, MEDIUM , but NOT the M4 models in use by the USMC or the Sovjet Army and
2. Cold War period military vehicles, in particular US Army vehicles in MAASTER or MERDC camo.
But I also build Canadian, Belgian or Dutch AFVs frequently, like the M113 or the YPR-765, or all models of the M60 TANK, MEDIUM.
Occasionally you'll find me on some sort of exotic battle grounds like one of my next projects, a Norwegian M48A5 with WEGMANN smoke dischargers and MG 3s. Recently I started an Belgian JPK 90.
