ASIAN AIR ARMS Research Group
Laos, Cambodia & Myanmar
I started modelling many years ago when I was just 8 years old. My father and I built a 1/144 Hobbycraft F-4: it was a basic kit, the fit was rough and inaccuracies abounded but it was fun and I enjoyed the time we had together on that build. Last year, out of sentiment, I built another 1/144 Hobbycraft F-4, but this time very differently, challenging myself to fix as many of the inaccuracies as I could, and (just like in the old days) brush paint it to completion before triumphantly presenting it to my dad.
My profound interest in Asian military aircraft began after getting hooked on researching history, pilots, places and events that impacted the world, from the early days of World War Two, Korea, Vietnam and beyond.
Whilst being interested in North Korean and Chinese aviation, my main passions are for the air arms of Laos, Cambodia and Myanmar. As my family is originally from former Yugoslavia I also have some knowledge of Balkan aviation, particularly the Soko G-4 Super Galeb and its use by the air force of Myanmar.
I’m a member of IPMS Canada and am proud to sit on the National Executive, responsible for Communications. We publish a fascinating quarterly magazine "RT" (Random Thoughts), that is a must to read and is included in membership of IPMS Canada (why don't you join?)
