About me:
Hello,

so i'm Germen, a goodlaughs-crazy modeller from Belgium. I've been in and out different modelhobbies for about all of my life, trains, R/C cars, Hot WHeels, slotracing, table top gaming, but i always came back to my first love. I started the hobby when i was about 10-12 years with the 1/72 matchbox-kits. Hooked up with a friend from down the street who was also passionated by aviation, and yes we both managed to have a job in it, he in the military and I in the civilian branch. When i was 16, my first airshows in Koksijde and Florennes, the year later in Mildenhall and the next few years Fairford. A magic world opening up, YEAH,.....
in 1998 or so i became member of the Sabena Modellers Club, even made it as president for a few years, but due to some 'twisted' figures we decided to break up the club and kick out the r*tt** apples to become just a bunch of friends who come together every wednesday evening to talk, joke, build,..

For the moment i build mostly in 1/48 and 1/144 with a love for the B25 Mitchell, the F4 Phantom and Russian military aircraft.
