Hello from Hamilton in Scotland

Hi to all, my name's Bartosz (abbreviated to Bart), I'm from Poland originally and have been living in Scotland since late 2005.

I started building models in my early teens, some 30 years ago, then it ended several years later due to other things occupying my mind. Having watched some youtube build clips, I decided to re-start my long forgotten activity, since I've got some spare time after work after all. Since the quality of the kits has improved significantly from those from the late 80s and early 90s, and it's been so long since I built my last kit, I'm basically a newbie in the hobby. My sole interest (at least for the foreseeable future) is the Polish campaign of 1939 - armoured vehicles (and maybe non-armoured ones later as well) of all the combatants involved, i.e. Poland, Germany and the USSR.

I am originally from Lanarkshire and I went to school in Hamilton so I know the area well.

Hello Bart … :post1: from the city of Chicago USA. I mostly build military aircraft and have an interest in the Polish Air Force. I an slowly building up a collection of most types used from the 1920’s thru today. Personally I am of Polish descent, my uncle served on the ORP Kujawiak. A Hunt class destroyer escort that was part of the Royal navy in WW2. Our original family name is Wojtas.

Hi Dennis, for a country emerging from the I WW Poland had relatively high amount of types of aircraft in its service beginning from the earliest moments of its renewed existence, even building its first own one as early as in 1919 (sadly its first flight ended in a disaster), so building a collection of Polish aircraft is going to keep you busy for a long time 👍

Larkhall maybe?

 

My dad was from Hamilton, my sister and I spent our long summer holidays either at my aunt's in Tuphall Rd or with my uncle Jim in Motherwell where our aunt Jean made us welcome.

Aunty Jean was from Larkhall.

 

Welcome home Bart, good to know you
