    Hello Everyone
    Some days ago I've registered to this forum and now ( after been gone in "exploration" ) I must say that it is Incredible!!!!!!!!!...

    I'm not new to papermodel... I'm interested mainly in science fiction, space and military models.

    I'm also a Trekker from... well... from the first moment that I can remember :mrgreen:.... and a collector of military equipment ( mainly U.S., WWI-II ), old toys and, obviously, trek collectibles...

    PS: I'm Italian... so, please, forgive my english mistakes :razz:

    Alberto :wave:

    Welcome to the forums, Alberto!:wave:
    Your English is just fine! The only Italian I know is gratsi and I don't even know how to spell it correctly! Was that right?:oops:

    I am glad you are enjoying the forums. There is so much to see and learn you can stay busy for months in there!!

    I look forward to seeing some of your work and to seeing you around the forums! Again, welcome!:mrgreen:

    Thank you for your words Russell...

    I Know that I'll spent months to read all but.... THIS is the good thing :mrgreen:

    PS: If you are referring to the italian for "Free" it is "gratis", nearly correct... and, you won't believe it, it is Latin, but we still use it after thousands years! ghgh... I know... we Italians are crazy people :mrgreen:

    Welcome to the forum. :wave:
    Maybe the word Amazyah was looking for is grazie, or thanks.
    I visited Trieste way back in 1978. I remember it as being a really nice place. There was some sort of beer festival going on in a clearing up in the hills. You could see Yugoslavia in the distance. Beer makers from all over Europe had tents set up where you could sample their brew.
    I ate some very good food in town, too.

    Here is a picture I took back then. Recognize it?

    Yes, that's it. Grazie!
    I grew up in a military family and we traveled all the time.
    Whatever country we were in we tried to learn all the polite words first.:twisted:

    Sure! it is one of the buildings of the main plaza ( Piazza Unità = "unity plaza" )... and, as the biggest part of the city, it is in Austrian Empire style ( we were Austrian until the end of the WWI ), so very different from Italian architecture.

    I never made it to Trieste, but lived in Naples for three years and was lucky enough to travel around the Tuscany region and the Abruzzi mountains quite a bit.....I really miss Italy!
