More about me:

Hi all,

As the neighbur of the chairman of the local model flying club WTC Hamme,my modelling history starts at a very young age as 10 years or so. Beginning with plastic static models over free flight to R/C started building my own models with a growing interest for slope soaring.The latest stage i got stuck in is scale models for the slope.I'm still flying powered models but mainly electric powered,due to field restrictions.


Im a selfemployed car mecanic in Sint niklaas, Belgium ,that's between Antwerp and Bruges. I'm continuing my fathers business that exists now for over 60 years.I have  a weak spot for aircooled VW's Porsche cars and beach buggy's.I once made my own moulds for one in the 80's.

I'm married to Diana who helps me in my business and gave me a beautyfull  doughter ,now 27 and a handsome son ,now 25. A big German sheppard named '' Porsche'' guards my family wich recently was blessed with a granddoughter Lana, now nearly 2(My son's doughter)
