I actually joined at the end of November, but have been a bit sidetracked, so apologies for the late introduction. I was informed by a friend of the site, and decided to check in and see what's happening here, and was very impressed, so I joined. I have a interest in WWII that stems from my father's involvement in the war as an infantryman in the Canadian Army. As many of his generaltion, he didn't talk much about his experiences, and through accounts from his brothers and sister, the war years haunted him; but he was also immencly proud of his service. He died a few years ago, sadly, and I was lucky enopugh to get the medals he wore for the last time as he lay in repose.
I am an avid Gamer, and specifically in WWII games. I find that in the scenarios I play, I am able to better understand the tactics used on the battlefield...even if it is just in a small way. I have also recently rediscovered model building, and build primarily WWII models.
I look forward to exploring the site and meeting many new friends here![/quote]
I am interesting to know about your model building constructions. I am also create model dioramas, mostly for 1/30 scale military toy soldiers miniatures. When I have a chance I will post a few pictures of my dioramas.
