About BlackWidowMy name is Torsten and I live in Karlsruhe in the southwest of Germany, close to the french border. Back in 2001 I started building model kits with a P-40 by Revell. Since then the virus has got me. I'm mostly interested in WW2 era with all these fantastic propeller aircrafts (from todays view). My "favourite" warbirds are P-38 Lightning, P-40 Warhawk, Spitfire, Fw 190, Ki-45 Toryu and - of course - the P-61 Black Widow. Meanwhile I have build about 80 kits, all in 1:48 scale. Since 2006 I'm using airbrush. You find me quite often on exhibitions around Germany and Switzerland, as I'm vice president of PMC Kurpfalz, one of the oldest Plastic Modellers Clubs in Germany. I'm also a member of IPMS Switzerland, Bern Branch. Since about 2 years my interests go more for the pacific war then for the war in Europe. A special interest goes not only to japanese aircraft but also to the in Europe more or less unknown japanese pilots. So I more build aircrafts from that area, but you find also Bf 109, Ju 87, Fw 190 and others in my place - even some jets!
Horrido and Happy Modelling!
