I pleased to greet You all as real fans of historic vehicles. I have a big interest about WW2 wheeled vehicles as scale modeller. And German vehicles are interesting for me too - especially the trucks. I should like to collect different materials about these trucks (including technical descriptions, manuals, spare parts catalogues, etc.). I think, here I shall be able to meet colleagues in different areas of German vehicle technics.
I don't mess with real vehicles. I can't afford it, and I'm hazardous with tools. My biggest reason for joining here is to get information for models. I don't have a lot of time for modeling, but I still like to do it. I have a Steyr conversion in work right now.
I am a retired US Marine, and I work as a deputy sheriff in a jail. I'm also involved with Boy Scouts, as I still have two sons involved.
On the side, just in case any of you publish books, I make maps: www.mapsatwar.com I also do light editing and proof-reading.
My big history focus right now is 6.SS-Nord. I have been researching them for some time, and eventually I will write the most comprehensive divisional history ever of that unit. Actually, I have so much information that when the book is finally done, I'll have to launch a website in parallel with it, for all the other information that didn't fit in the book!
