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... Why? 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.
