First off, forgive me if this has already been posted elsewhere.

Second of all, I'm mainly into building model cars, trucks, tanks, and occasionally aircraft. Right now, I'm trying to look for something more interesting to do with an IS-3 heavy tank kit I have on my desk.

I used to, but I can rarely find the time nowadays. I started with tiny fighter planes. Fighter planes because I liked their aesthetic a lot. And tiny because I had to be mindfull of space.

I'm still very pleased with my Star Trek and Star Wars spaceship collection. Most of them are still on proud display, but some took a tumble and have been languishing in a box to be repaired for years now.

I even have two still in the box, sealed. Maybe in a few years time I can pull them out for a joint project with the nephews. That would be cool.

I have a Mack CruiseLiner kit that I was working on with my father. He would assemble the thing while I painted the parts. We haven't gotten very far with it, but it's an interesting project.

Hi…

I’ve been sculpturing nearly all my life in Belgium and if ‘Friendly Frog’ shops in Namur, then there is the possibility that he/she has seen my work.
Mostly jewellery…, but of recent, much more writing-related, (historical fiction) and thanks to it, it should provide me with my cover image.

Very easy to do, ‘cost-free,’ one-off pieces and could provide you with the necessary trees and bushes needed to decorate the tank.
If anyone wants to know how, (‘jewellery’ for the ladies) just let me know.
