Hello from Belgium

#1

Post by Michel »

Hello everybody, my name is Michel.

I live in Belgium, in the southern part (near La Louvière for those who know Belgium ;-).

I follow this forum for years but never needed to post something because if I collect many models (+/- 1000 in the stash !), I work very slowly and I have thus almost nothing to show.
I am now retired (from the Belgian Air Force (in a Signal unit, computer specialist), at the age of 56, how lucky I am ;-) and I should have more time for our hobby (But motivation is well needed).
I am a member of IPMS Belgium (coordinator for the contest during the National Convention (Plastic & Steel)). I was also a member of SIG144 some years ago but as already mentioned, I worked slowly and I did not do the follow up :-(

As I received an order from "L'Arsenal" some time ago, I would like to show this to the Forum ;-).
So I will post it to the "news" very soon :-)

I love in Devon but as I have visited Bruges I want to welcome you to the gang. I build quickly, because I am not good and I'm old!

Firstly, a very warm welcome to the forum from Down Under. My build rate tends to vary between slow and glacial, with a couple of completions taking longer than an Ice Age. And retired at 56? Just brought up the same two digits but in reverse and fear that my retirement is still decades away! :?

Look forward to seeing your builds and the stash you purchased from L'Arsenal. ;)
OTB ...
GB20 - Lavochkin La-7 (Mark I)
GB25 - Vickers Windsor (Anigrand), Curtiss P-40M Kittyhawk III (AFV Club)
SoS - Douglas C-47B Dakota (Minicraft) and several others :-(

Retirement at 56? Count me in! Heck, I'm ready right now. Plenty of kits to build and other stuff to do so I won't need to fear being bored.

Well, I hope your retirement will give you the opportunity to dig into your huge stash and enjoy some model building. Welcome aboard! :)
