Hello, Visconti - Welcome to FSM, I hope you will enjoy your time spent here. So many talented and skilled modelers, so much to be learned from these works in progress and photos.

As an engineer, what specialties do you have at work, and which aircraft do you perform your work on? Nice to have you join us.

Thank you Patrick,

now i'm not working as aeronautical engineer, i am a free lance private worker. Being a structural engineer my job of now is about general civil structures, like buildings. In the past, I worked with a company engaged in maintenance of airplane engines, but I did not like the job much so I decided to do the freelance.

About my models, I prefer above all IIWW planes, but I do not even have problems building modern models.

Hi peeps.

I am not new to modelling, I have been somewhat inactive and I am getting into it more again. In my youth I built a bunch of models. My first one when I was 6 years old had glue all over it. It was a '56 corvette.

My favorite to build is star trek space ships. 

But in college I had built a model I wish I still had, because I can't identify it. there are no photos online or info about it and I only had a partial photo [of my room which was filled with star trek and star wars ships and posters.] I'll be asking about it soon as I can post photos.

Thanks
