    Welcome to the forum John. :)

    And don´t worry about what these threads seems to be about, every thread longer than 10 messages have tendency to end up in a digression. But we´re working on it. :wink:

    Nice to see another modeller as well.

    Yeah,

    I'm a newbie. Been hanging around a bunch of armor forums. I promise search back into past postsso I won't ask stupid questions that have been asked 800 different times. ( Kind of annoying, if you ask me ). So, I'll try to do my best in that area.

    Other than that, I look forward to chatting with you guys.

    Later

    Hi, since my grandfather was a carpenter, I guess I'll be allowed to join the club.
    I found the site following Roel or Skua back from www.wwiivehicles.com and I really enjoy trying to keep up with everyone. The group is quite lively and the depth of knowledge blows me away.
    I also have a definite feeling that I'm among the older members of this forum, at least twice (if not three) times the average age.
    I'm located in Montreal, Quebec, Canada and work as an aircraft design engineer. I'm passable in French, but Dutch (one of my co-workers is Dutch) makes me feel like I've had too much to drink. It seems like the sounds are familiar but I can't quite get the meaning.
    I've had a life long fascination with WWII, the American Civil War and history and technology in general.[/quote]

    Well, we have members ranging from 10 years of age to 63 that I know of, but the honourable mr. Gerry Chester (not even Sir yet, shame on you British government :grin: ) must be older since he's a WW2 vet.
    So you are probably a little over the average, but those people have more experience right? :wink:

    We have a lot of Canadians here, but you are the first aircraft engineer that I know of - cool! And don't worry about not getting the meaning of Dutch. Who would mind? There's only about 30 million people in the world that speak it.

    introducing myself

    the honor of being the oldest belongs to me the Kriegspfarrer 64 years old I am a tank nut and an old soldier, probably the closest thing to a ww2 vet but my contributions were on the home front- a victory garden and some scrap drives as well as a war bond and enduring rationing. I was a preschool little kid five when it ended, actually the official end of ww2 was 1951 not 1945, it took that long to ratify all documents and approve them by the Unitied nations so I was really 11 yeas old. I invite you all to become ww2 reenactors and wear the uniforms carry the weapons and ride in the vehicles of that momentus era. Join the HRS. Historical reenactment society, ww2, and the MVPA, seriously what better way to keep the story of the greatest generation alive? not just books words and models and games but reenacting and living history. my 2 cents. I have lots of advice for wannabe reenactors, especially GI and German

    more KF rants

    I probably have several titles. the most educated- Masters degree and 36 graduate hours - 4 languages, the only teacher in the lot and the only ordained minister of the gospel. probably the most years of ARMY service (17) and the most ex wifes (3) languages Spanish Greek German Italian and I seriously invite you to become followers of Jesus Christ, I am a born again Christian and want you all to understand that the struggle in ww2 was really between God and Satan. the weapons of our warfare are not carnal but mighty thru God to the casting down of strong holds, for we wrestle not against flesh and blood but against principalities and powers against the ruler of spiritual wickedness in high places. Christianity is itself a reenactment of what Jesus and the Apostles especially the Apostle Paul did in the first century. and acceptance of Jesus as your personal savior and trusting in his death for sin assures us of salvation by GRACE thru faith. join the kings men. and become a soldier of the cross. I want to have Christian reenactors to lead. end of sermon

    Re: introducing myself

    Is that so? Really nice. I didn't know that. :grin:
    I don't think you are the oldest anymore, KF... We have a true WW2 vet among us, and then I don't mean a veterinarian. :wink: And you're not the only teacher either, Steiner is a history teacher in the Netherlands.

    Say, before you start preaching, did you know that the forces of 'evil' Germany wore belt buckles saying 'Gott mit uns'? How can you say that the Allies were with God and the Axis were not? Both sides believed in their own God or gods, and both sides did so with devotion; I'm sure that victory or defeat had other reasons.

    Well, I'm new too, so I'd rather introduce myself! :)

    My name is Jan and I'm a Dane (We hail from Danmark, yes). I work as a publice servant, currently single (of sorts), and I'm 29 (alarmingly close to 30) years old.

    I, of course, like history, politics, lifting weights, getting my 6 kicked while boxing (HW), writing, reading, music (rock/hard rock) and what have we...

    Best regards to ya all!

    - Mr.Bluneote.

    Howdy, I'm Ceez. Born in Peru (two countries to the northwest of Uruguay!) and grew up watching old spanish dubbed episodes of 'Combat' Pretty positive that's where my WWII fascination was born :p Now in college, living in the US, and very much nurturing my hobby! Like seemingly a lot of people, I'm particularly taken by the German's wartime technology and formations. Interesting stuff, especially when one considers how much of post-ww2 military technology has been influenced by German wartime technological advances...

    Well, cheers to all!

    Hmm, yeees, you would be, now wouldn't you... Just joking! :) Skufr is refering to Jim's Comando Supremo website. It's a site dedicated to Italy during WW2 - and quite a good one, I'd say! Do drop by, Roel, or anybody else for that matter!

    Best regards!
