New member from Germany ...

Hello from Germany,

Just want to say "hello" to everybody and leave a short note about me ... By chance I reached the cool website of SierraWest and found these great models .... and saw all your great work in this forum. Amazing .... I think this was the moment when I fell in love to these wooden wonders ... and ordered my own first kit (the Twin Mills). I hope that you will like my version although it will be one of the first kits like these in my life.

Until now I mostly build plastic or resin kits (preferable 1:35 civil dioramas with lot of weathering) and so on ... so this is new ground for me ....

Some words about me... I am 39 years old, living in Germany near Stuttgart. I am married and my wife and I are "working on our first kiddy at the moment" :) I am working in the car business as sales guy of the export department, in charge for our dealers and private customers all around the world. A different hobby is creating my own website ( which is dedicated to my hobby as well ...

So far for the moment ... now I will sit back and wait for the postman bringing my wooden wonder to me :)

    That is just funny, well and probably spot on!

  • Michael,

    We have a 17 day old daughter. Be forewarned, infants give a whole new meaning to hangry.

    I'm new to this hobby as well, I'm on my second diorama.

    Based off of the Titanic you built you'll be a good bit ahead of others of us who are new to this hobby :wink:.

    Also, when you start working on your kit... you will discover Bretts product kind of like a rabbit hole of awesomeness....
  • I was just on your web site. That's pretty impressive wok.
    Titanic was really well done your going to fit in here just fine.

  • Welcome amongst us Michael.
