My collections & my Hobbies



Hello, all !!! 

I’m living in France at Beauvais, middle town of 60,000 inhabitants, NW of Paris; 70 km. I was born in February 1948  and retired since November 2009, most of my business life passing at the Spontex cellulosic artificial sponges factory, situated 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 316 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 WW1WW2 and modern conflicts (691 items ) with scales from 1/144 to 1/16.



- 05/2017: added  item n°36 of the Altaya/IXO "1/43 Main Battletanks of the WW2"  - M3 Grant Mk I, 1st Armored Division, Libya, May 1942.



In a parallel way, I got a large library of historical and/or technical books - 227  so far - (series begun in the 60ies), as well as documentary DVDs regarding military airplanes and vehicles of WW1, WW2 and modern conflicts (see Albums 27 & 45 ):


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 !!




Herunder 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:



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 !!!

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…

In this last month of the 2016 year, I have a special thought for our friend and site creator Matt Whisenant, whithout who our collectors pages should have never existed.

Even without real fresh news from him, he is still behind the scene to maintain our club.

I wish him and his family as well as all of you a merry X-Mas time for the Christians and a happy new year for all !!!


Hi, all!!!

Have a good time, all and take care !!!

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 :-)

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!
