About me:
Started modeling at the age of ca.12 with aircraft kits mostly, made a few excursions into a few ships, some cars and trucks. While I was studying I returned to scale modeling, now mainly aircraft and refined my skills. From around 1996 till 2010 I hadn't much time for that hobby, but finally started again spring 2011. I'm interested in all aircraft since the 1930s, especially fighters of WW 2 and Cold War. Generally, I build what I like and what is good-looking or in which I have a special interest (e.g. Battle of Britain, German Nightfighters WW 2, F-4 Phantoms). I don't use airbrush as there's no proper room for spraying 🙁 , so it's still "Old-School" painting by hand.
By the way, I'm a member of the Sally B Supporters Club in UK for many years now. They keep the only B-17G Flying Fortress in Europe in flying condition and it's an awesome sight watching her fly at the airshows!
My favorite scale is 1/72, but for bigger aircraft like bombers, multi-engined aircraft I choose 1/144, even sometimes 1/200 (less space needed for the finished model...)
Occupation: Insurance

Interests: Airshow photography, air museums, reading, cinema, Basketball, Football(Soccer), Darts
