My collections & my Hobbies




I’m living in France at Beauvais, middle town of 60,000 inhabitants, 70km NW of Paris; I was born in February 1948 and retired since November 2009, most of my business life passing at the Spontex cellulosic artificial sponges factory, located in the same town.

I’m married and got 3 sons, born 1976, 1982 and 1985, and the happy grand'pa of a little Lise, born in June 2012, and of little Thomas, born in September 2015.

I’ve been collecting "diecast" miniatures models since year 2000, beginning with 1/72 items, but many years ago, I used to assemble and paint plastic models (Airfix, Aurora, Heller, Revell, Monogram, aso) fallen in pieces for long... together with my dexterity, my sight and my patience !!!

Here is a link to my showroom, old and new agencement:

My planes models collection, involving scales from 1/400 to ~1/30,

represents 317 items from WW1 to space conquest. Some of them are still in their boxes.

Though this site is more dedicated to airplanes models, let me share with you that I'm collecting too armored vehicles and militaries regarding WW1, WW2 and modern conflicts (720 items ) with scales from 1/144 to 1/16. In fact it's the more important part of my collections.

I'm collecting too tin soldiers from Napoleonic wars, WW1 and WW2.



...More? I play the guitar and sing in a little Irish Pub Music band called "The Grabateers" !!!!!!



-06/2018: Added book "Panzer - L'encyclopédie des chars allemands de la Seconde Guerre Mondiale", by Laurent Tirone, Caraktère Publications et Editions, Juin 2018. Augmented re-issuing of the 2015 English version, same author, same editor.

         Panzer - L'encyclopédie des chars allemands de la Seconde Guerre Mondiale

-06/2018: Added n°64 of the Altaya/Ixo series "1/43 Main Battletanks of WW2" - Kliment Voroshilov KV1 (Mod.42), 52nd "Red Banner" Armoured Brigade, Caucasus, USSR, Sept. 1942.

        Kliment Voroshilov KV1 (Mod.42)



In a parallel way, I got a large library of historical and/or technical books - 239 so far - (series begun in the 60ies), as well as documentary DVDs regarding military airplanes and vehicles of WW1, WW2 and modern conflicts (see hereunder links to my docs Albums):

Vol 1:

Vol 2:

Vol 3:

I like "linking" my models to the real History and issue little historical posts on the forum. This forum is an open space of vulgarisation, and I'm happy finding new real amateurs able to write some as my good friend Ahmed Misbah from Egypt. All of you are invited to do so !!


Hereunder in the "My Photos" module are some photos albums of my Airplanes and Armored Fighting Vehicles collections. Choose the "View all" option for more....or you can link to my whole pics cavern:


Sorry, but no more possibility to refresh the link at this time (180608)


This file can be opened either by Excel, Open Office or LibreOffice suites.


I hope that these data will help to complete my profile... and make you happy and inquiring !!! I was proud to be a MAC member, to be part of Scale Model Collectors (SMC ?) AND NOW I'M PROUD TO BE A MAC MEMBER AGAIN (hopefully, no problems for the links, thanks to Matt !! LOL !! :=D ) Kind regards from France and take care all !!!

Hello from France, cheese eaters and frog eaters country !!


A long time since Matt Whisenant created this site, with a handful of his friends.

Though he is very shy on web at this time, I hope all goes well for him and his family.

A big "Thank you Matt!" for still maintening these pages at his own charge, for our pleasure and for new members.

Long Live M.A.C.…


2017 surprise !!!

Posted on January 4, 2017 at 11:00am 0 Comments

Hello, all !!

2017 is beginning well for me !

I was searching one precise 1/72 Tiger I model in my shelves and, despite my desperate efforts to see it on one of my cabinets, I was obliged to admit that I lost it !!!

After some moments of total frightening, I try another hard thing: to calm down first, and then another one: to think (not so easy !!!).

I consulted precisely my last inventory and, at that instant, I realised that not only one…


1090 !!!!!

Merci, Jean-Francois!

Yes, indeed, a good weekend for Ireland, both men and women's rugby teams.

We need days like this from time to time :-)

Thank you, Jean-Francois! Sounds like a nice friendly place here :-)

Hey Jeff,

Check these guys out:

They make custom models from off-the-shelf kits. Those are certainly much better than the wooden ones.

Hope you like it!
