About me:
I build slower than I can buy stuff.....
I used to build kits a boy (who didn't) . After some issues with my health left me unable to ride motorcycles I needed something to fill my time and keep me busy. I bought an old Me 109 kit..........and the trouble started. 😄

Now I enjoy building again, but reading magazines and especially collecting books about WWI and WWII are the things that I enjoy most about the hobby. So now i have an attic full of unbuilt kits, a great many nice books in my library and thousands of e-books littering my hard drive.

I only build 1:48 stuff and have a preference for WWII German subjects but I really don't care if it has wings, wheels or tracks.
