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 4 grandchildren (2 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:
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, battleships and militaries regarding WW1, WW2 and modern conflicts (742 items ) with scales from 1/1100 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 with my bro in a little Irish Pub Music band called "The Grabateers" !!!!!!
In a parallel way, I got a large library of historical and/or technical books - 253 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):
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 !!
