Hello from Switzerland

Discussion in 'Welcome aboard' started by Huw63, Jan 28, 2012.

    As a newbie here I’d better introduce myself.

    Originally from Wales but have lived in Switzerland for over a decade now. My other hobby of motorcycling led me here after meeting a wonderful woman who’s now my long-suffering wife.

    I’ve been modelling for around 40 years but have had a number of quiet periods due to travelling, work, starting a family etc. but have been hoarding material all these years. Over the years I’ve collected a reasonable library concerning Napoleonic uniforms and at one time eve got involved in re-enactment to learn more about the weapons drill etc.

    My main interest is in the Napoleonic era with World War 2 a second. I am a long-standing Historex fan but also love the figures of Andrea, Metal Modeles and Pegaso. Attractive sculptures from any era tempt me too. Whilst principally a figure fan (French heavy Cavalry being my principle interest) I also make armour but see machines as more a background for figures.

    I think that’s enough of an introduction to put people to sleep. I hope to have time to participate and contribute to this forum.

    Hope to see/ hear from you soon.

    Looks like I'll be asking a lot of questions from you as I begin to learn to paint!
