Started (again) with Soldier Modeling (1/72).

Posted by Johnybegood on 14 Aug 2020, 21:03


My name is Jan and have recently decided to start (again) with Figures Modeling.
A hobby witch started more then 40 years ago, was replaced by Trains, Computers, Girls and my family. But needed a new way to relax and this helped in the passed and History is always been off interest.

I started so many years ago with Airfix Soldiers, City People etc. And i loved it. Then came Matchbox and Atlantic which ik loved even more.

Nowadays there are many more brands to buy and Collect en i started 2 years ago small, but it grew on me and the (unpainted) collection is now about 2000 1/72 figures. Especial the Waterloo Era is my favorite. But Japanese Samurai (Zvezda), Britisch Colonial (Esci) and the Airfix Royal guards are also favorite.

When starting to paint again, i wil see to make some pictures.
