My collections & my Hobbies

                 YOU'RE WELCOME ON JEFF'S COLLECTOR PAGE !!!

   

I- AUTO-PROFILE !! :

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. Proud father of 3 sons and grand father of 5 grandchildren (3 boys and 2 girls, thanks God !)

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:

http://www.modelairplanecollectors.com/photo/albums/album-31-my-own-home-new-museum-layout

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

represents 320 items from WW1 to space conquest. Some of them are still in their boxes. September 2019: Since there's no more room left at home for my airplanes models, it seems this is their ultimate inventory… But I continue with some vehicles and books...

Though this site is more dedicated to airplanes models, let me share with you that I'm collecting too armored vehicles, battleships and militaries regarding WW1, WW2 and modern conflicts (764 items ) with scales from 1/1100 to 1/16. In fact it's the most important part of my collections.

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

WW1 Tin Soldiers

Napoleonian Wars Tin soldiers

   

II- LIBRARY:

In a parallel way, I got a large library of historical and/or technical books - 279 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: http://www.modelairplanecollectors.com/photo/albums/album-27-airplanes-afvs-documentation-vol-1

Vol 2: http://www.modelairplanecollectors.com/photo/albums/album-45-airplanes-afvs-ships-documentation-vol-2

Vol 3: http://www.modelairplanecollectors.com/photo/albums/album-48-airplanes-afvs-ships-documentation-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 !!

III- PICS ALBUMS:

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:

31/10/2020 - Added book "Pierre Clostermann - Journal de sa vie opérationnelle Janvier 1943 - Août 1945" by G-E COISNE, Amazon publ.

26/10/2020 - Waiting for a Military Badges UK new delivery: doubles of RAF Squ 341 & 342, as this parcel came back to England for incomplete postal address, obliging me to re-order these ones !!! As we say: the more, the merrier !!

23/10/2020 - Some news of my patches - blazer badges collection:

21/10/2020 - Received this morning from Military Badges UK this of the RAF French Squ 341 (GC III/2 "Alsace"). This was in this Squadron that Pierre Clostermann began his operational carreer. He then flew in the RAAF Squ 602 after the death of the 341 Wing Co, René Mouchotte.

19/10/2020 - My XMas gift delivered and preciously kept apart by wife :

CAMOUFLAGE AND MARKINGS OF THE PANZERWAFFE (1923-1945), by Artur MAJEWSKI, HUSSAR Publ.
This book has taken more than five years of research and development, combining documentary and archival sources with photographic evidence from units in the field, to provide new insights into the painting and marking of Nazi Germany’s panzer divisions in the years 1923 – 1945. A modern reference on the subject has long been requested by historians and model-builders alike, and now the wait is over.

15/10/2020 -I just received the badge of the 75 th anniversary of the RC 2/30 Normandy-Niemen, whose motif adorned the left drift of the Rafale specifically decorated on this occasion.


It is the portrait of the aspirant Georges Henry, 2 victories approved, 3 victories in collaboration, and 1 airplane damaged in collaboration. At 25 years old the last dead of the N-N , he lost his life from his wounds after an enemy strafing attack of his base in East Prussia on 12/04/45.


On the same day, he had obtained his last victory on a Fw 190 piloted by the Gruppenkommandeur of the I./JG 51, Hauptmann Günther Schack, holder of 174 victories and of the Knight's Cross of the Iron Cross with Oak Leaves, who survived the destruction of his aircraft.


Thanks to the Trad cell of the RC 2/30 NN!! 

13/10/2020 - Received this morning from Military Badges UK this of the RAAF (Royal Auxiliary Air Force) Squ 602 "City of Glasgow". This was in this Squadron that Pierre Clostermann flew his LO-Ds Spitfires...

Hobby Master item HA8315 - Supermarine Spitfire Mk IXc "MJ586 / LO-D", P/O Pierre Clostermann DFC, RAF aux. Squ 602 City of Glasgow, Longues-sur-Mer, Normandy, France, June-July 1944.

Pierre Henri Clostermann (28 February 1921 – 22 March 2006) was a French flying ace, author, engineer, politician, and sporting fisherman. Over his flying career he was awarded the Grand-Croix of the French Légion d'Honneur, French Croix de Guerre, DSO, DFC and bar (United Kingdom), Distinguished Service Cross (USA), Silver Star (USA), and the Air Medal (USA). Ended WW2 on Tempest Mk V as a Wing Co of Flight A Squ 3 with 33 kills.

07/10/2020 - The twin "bibles" regarding German WW2 airplanes I'm so proud to own:

- Warplanes of the IIIrd Reich, W. Green, McDonald’s, 1970 (estimed at 320€ second hand)
- Aircraft of the IIIrd Reich, completed and corrected edition of the above opus by W. Green, initially to be published in 3 tomes , Aerospace Publ., 2010. (Tome 1 of 3, lthe definitely only one to be published, following the death of the author in 2010 and the editor gone on administration in 2012. Estimed 99€ brand new).
Should the following 2 tomes have been published, this opus could have been the ULTIMATE REFERENCE  on the subject.

28/09/2020 - Well received this morning the blazer badges of WW2 RAF "Free French" Squ 329 (GC 1/2 Cigognes SPA3) and 345 (GC 2/2 Berry SPA 103), thanks to the "Tradition" cell of the GC 1/2 Cigognes, Base Aérienne 116, Luxeuil.

It is to be remembered that Luxeuil-lès-Bains was the base of the WW1 N125 "American Squadron", aka the Lafayette Squadron, equipped with the"Bébé" Nieuport 11...

17/09/2020 - Received my badges from GC 1/2 "Cigognes", this Groupe de Chasse being heir of SPA3, SPA26 and SPA103 traditions. SPA stands for "SPAD" and is the way the WW1 French Squadrons using SPAD airplanes were named.

For instance, F stood for Farman, MF stood for Maurice Farman, HF for Henry Farman, Bl for Blériot, D for Deperdussin, N for Nieuport, Sal for Salmson, C for Caudron, MS for Morane Saulnier, V for Voisin, Sop for Sopwith, aso...

There were too some exceptions (a French speciality), fi:  Ar or Do for Dorand equipped squadrons, R for Caudron type R, REP for Esnault Pelterie !!!

Hey Jeff,

Check these guys out:

http://www.dogfighter.com/Handcrafted-Airplane-Models-Aviation-Collectibles/index.html

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

Hope you like it!
