About me:
Hello mates!

I'm a 42 year old modeller who has been building models for almost as long as I can remember. My first model was a Porsche 928 S4 when I was a kid. My dad found me in the living room at 4 a.m. the next day building it. I remember painting it with oil paint from Ravensburger's 'painting by numbers' :)
Since then I've always been modelling different subjects. I model everything with tracks/wheels, props/jets, sails and sometimes even legs or fins.

Though I have a broad perspective on the subjects I model, I do have a special interest in:
- German Luftwaffe WW2
- German Armour WW2
- US Naval aviation from WW2 onwards to present day
- racing cars: F1, Le Mans and GT racers
- Royal Netherlands Air Force
- Ardennes Offensive 1944 (Battle of the Bulge for US mates)

More recently I really started to enjoy figure painting very much, ranging from Games Workshop figures to large scale busts. I'm still practicing this, so still a lot to learn.
