Hello to all - I am new on this forum...

    I am a Belgian figure painter and modeller and new on this forum. I started making Airfix kits in the sixties, painting hundreds of Airfix 1/76 figures, and their 54mm figs...
    Via Airfix Magazine and Military Modelling (I got a subscription from my dad from issue 1!) I learned a lot, and was custommer at La Heaumerie du Casque d'Or in Brussels and TOMKER in Antwerp...
    I joined Belgian Army in 1971 and retired in 2007. I organised the Jagers te Paard figures for Chas Stadden when I was serving in those Regiments. I am still a guide in Brussels Army Museum.
    I did lots of armour models for teaching reccognition, but whenever fed up with kakhi I switch to colourful figurines.
    Humbrol user since the beginning I took on Winsor & Newton oils, and am now allso on acrylic paints... times change and we try to keep abreast of modern techniques...
    I hope to improve my skills via contacts on this forum.
