Hi Guys,

although I joined the Planet a while ago I never introduced myself, like most of the new members do now. So here we go:

My Name is Ambjoern I am 45 years old and I live in Switzerland. I live in a little village called Auw which is about 10 Minutes from the Town of Zug. The Town of Zug is located just 30 Minutes south of Zürich. I am married since 20 years and have 3 kids, two daughters (7 and 20) and a son (17). I have been working as a IT-Specialist/Programmer since 27 years. Since 13 years I am a selfemployed consultant and I work mainly for the swiss banks.

I grew up in Stockholm, Sweden and moved to Switzerland at the age of 18. I started modelling when i was 4, when my father let me assist him in building his Planes. When I was ten years old Tamiya started their 1:35 Military line and I was hooked to german armour. I built mainly german armour, dioramas and figures.
I participated in several local competitions and even placed first in some of them. Then I lost some speed at the age of 15 when I started to find women and partying more interesting than tanks and figures

I never lost contact with my hobby in the past years although I was not building any kits. I constantly bought magazines and visited hobby shops to check the news on the market. Then I took the step out of the shades and joined PlanetArmor, I even applied for a vBench straight from the start.

I have been busy cleaning up the cellar lately, trying to free up a little area where I can work. Until now I was using my portable workbench, but it was a bit cumbersome having to clean up every evening

Here is how my portable workbench looks like:



Here is the corner i managed to free up in the cellar:



a bit closer:



and from another angle:



Some of the kits I bought in the past years:



And some more:



And even more:



And more:



lots of work left :lol:

Hi Amba,

What a tidy little nice working corner you have in your cellar! I wish I had the time to clean up a little mine!!

BTW, I'm following closely your Late Hummel...Just Top Modelling!!

Cheers,

Luca

That´s the bigger amount of plastic kits non-started west of Volkestwil... I see there are more plastic modelers in Switzerland.

Very nice

It's like a liquor store and a very neat model shop, which is nonexistant here, all put into one (you have the best of both worlds :lol: )

Yeah! "Swiss Power"

As a matter of fact I don't know any local hobby store here in Switzerland, which has a bigger stock of DML kits than me :lol:

Hobby shops are quite rare in this country, I usually order from online stores anyway.

I know that, I´m living near Zürich and I think custom´s office hates me!

I will try to find time to present myself as you have done... even if my stock of kits is less important -about 20, plus some resin stuff, just 3 boxes of figures....

Regards,
