Hey Christer

Thanks for sharing a little bit of you
Nice to know more about you and your interest in Amphibs - just what Kenny is expecting for is GatorNavy Campaign
Also, I found your approach to the Maiale Diorama a very interesting one - just when other members are making a similar way, I found your shadowbox very good - Congratulations!!


PS: The Fearless is also a good one, and even if it is an "older" model, I would like to have a MOD on it

Quoted Text

“Ship modelling is a time consuming hobby and it requires a good mood and a lot of concentration. If you are aware of this, then you are able to enjoy a very creative moment. Ship modelling under a stressful atmosphere is unpleasant.

How true, how true.

Thanks for sharing Christer.

Nice to meet you Christer.

Really like the detail level in your dios, and the layout and presentation, all very well done. And as someone said, great philosophy too!

Work towards that "Big E" model!
