Born in 1980 and since my childhood very much interested in ships I decided to start a sea-going career, moved in a shore-based position and left the shipping industry.
Model making and replicating ships has always been my passion and hobby so it turned to my profession.
I learned to know ships and its equipment very well which I reflect in the scale models and replicate in a high level of details.
In 1997 I started to build the DFDS ferry "Hamburg", launched as "Kronprins Harald" for Jahre-Line in 1976, later known as "Admiral Of Scandinavia". She served the Hamburg - Harwich route for 15 years from 1987.
This model was my first scratch build - scale 1/100.
