Hello everyone, my name is Fabian. I´m 22 years old and live in a nice little town called Schwäbisch Gmünd in south-western Germany. Found this community a while ago... now I finally got the time to join (and to improve my language skills :mrgreen. I´ve been into building paper models for about 4 years. At the beginning I made some very basic models, most of them don´t even exist anymore (due to the fact that in those 4 years we´ve moved our place of living two times and some stuff somehow got lost). Anyway... currently I´m very interested in models of space crafts. Mostly real ones i.e. U.S. space program (I love the ISS and Space Shuttle models of Sir Alfonso) or Sovjet/Russian ones, even historic space crafts, but also scifi models from the Star Trek universe. In general I scale them up to a 1:60 scale but I also build other models like cars or planes in other scales (whatever it is given in). I like to have my models as realistic as possible (I´m sort of a perfectionist). Besides building paper models I play badminton, do a bit of mountain biking, I´m interested in sighthound races (not the commercial ones, just the ones for fun - we had a couple of salukis and an afghan hound some years ago) and also rallye sports (WRC).
