Born in Dudelange (Gr.D. of Luxembourg) on a cold December-day in 1956, I grew up between the rails that deserved a little town-station and the 4 blast-furnaces, foundry and rolling-mill of a steel-company named ARBED , just some footsteps away from our home. To become a modelrailroader was a very simple destination, since my Dad bought our first Fleischmann - beginner-set in 1959. More than 40 yaers were needed to discover my love and passion for the North-American railroads. My favorite of all these great companies is the Santa Fe Railroad. Modeling the late 50ies and early 60ies is the real thing. I can’t miss that era, where the rusty-brown dust and those sounds in the fog of the industry was mixed to the steam and chuffs or whistles of the locomotives. Still today I can smell the breathe of that dark, but illuminated atmosphere, that made from all of us what we are today. Well, my favorite techniques in modeling is scratchbuilding, kitbashing, weathering by airbrush or powder, but I know best results also in electric installation, DCC and re-powering.
