What first attracted you to Scale Modelling?
I would rather say “who”. My Father.
How long have you been scale modelling for?
For 40 years, but focused for real 10 years ago.
Specialist area of Modelling?
Well, I build in all the areas. Though aircraft and automotive have a particular place in my heart.
What is your favourite real subject of all time (aircraft, armour or maritime)?
Aircraft, my father worked for the Lebanese Middle East Airlines, I spent a lot of time with him in Beirut airport and after that, at the Frankfurt airport where he was stationed.
The best thing you’ve ever built?
Still don’t know, I think this answer can be found in my future builds.
And finally: Most memorable Modelling disaster?
My ex-wife looked at me with a smile and made a finished 1:48 F-16 “fly”. That is the moment where I thought that sometimes joking can be a serious thing.

Biggest hobby/hobbies outside of Scale Modelling?
I was a rock-climber until I fell stupidly from 4 meters. Yes, I think this was my biggest “hobby”.

Three famous people who you admire
I don’t admire people. And the ones that would deserve such a strange feeling, they have my love.
