Born in May 1964, living in Landshut, Bavaria, Germany.
I began modelling as an 8 years old boy, collecting aircraft models of the German Luftwaffe in scale 1/72 as well as military vehicles in scale 1/87. In the 1970s this was a common hobby among young boys.
At the age of 20/21, I switched my interest to the scale 1/35 and my first real kit was a Tamiya Horch 1a with a 2 cm Flak. Since that time I stick to this scale. Mainly I'm building vehicles of the former German Wehrmacht, but also of the French Army of 1939/1940 and since recent time I also have a grown interest in the Hungarian army until 1945.
My main interest is the technique of those old vehicle but also the often outer appearance of the different tanks, half tracks and so on, but also field conversions as one can find them on old archive or privately owned photos.
I especially like to build models of the cottage industry which require a certain amount of modelling experience, improvisation and also creative capabilities.
For me this hobby is a very nice balance for my job as a clerk in social insurance.
