    I'm a new fellow, and I just joined the cardmodelforum.

    My name is Paul, I am married and we have six childrens, I am 50.

    I'm a french modelist, especially interrested with military subjects, such as tanks and armour, brownwater ships, helicos...

    Certainly the 10 years I was in the army had counted. It was a very exciting time since I was one of the latest french tank commander to ride the '13 ( AMX13/90) a light, but very agressive tank. Late, I served with the Hussards and I ride the AMX-10 RC.
    When I leaved the army, I had the rank of Mdl/chef and I served in an antitank platoon with Milan missiles.
    I'd choose the psœudo 'brdm' because it was the vehicle we had to encounter ... and to fight if the war had occured...

    I've discovered papermodelism in 2001, but I build models kits since I was 10...
    So I think the papermodels are a degree over plastic kits since paper is a quite wonderful material. I have very much fun with papermodels, and this pleasure is multiplied since I'm able to re-draw models of the net, or draw my own models.

    Now I'm drawing the very first french tank, the Schneider CA1 of 1916...

    I'll show it when I will buid it.

    So, now, I'am very glad to be with you.

    Welcome Paul,

    It is nice to have another track layer join the group. I’m looking forward to seeing your finished Schneider CA it is a noteworthy tank and yet I don’t remember seeing a model the Schneider in plastic or paper.

    We have some things in common I’m ex Brown Water Navy who has an interest in Armor.

    Welcome Paul and Happy Bastille Day!

    Glad to have you aboard. It will be a pleasure to follow your builds as they progress. I share your enthusiasm for paper, it is a great modeling medium. Besides if things don't go so well, just print another and start over, only a little bit wiser from the first disaster. -Gil

    I want to tell you a great THANK YOU for your welcome messages.
    Of course, the photos of my models will soon be here.
    Please, excuse my very poor english, sometimes it's hard to write or to read, but as we said in france "ça va le faire... !"
