Hello everybody, I'm John from Holland, 38 years old, and a fanatic modeller. I prefer to build WWII 1:35 and 1:16 U.S. dioramas. As I write this, i've started a new project: the Tamiya Dragon Wagon, with a M-32 Sherman recovery vehicle on top. So if anyone has good tips, hints and/or photographs, I'm looking forward to your response!

Bye for now.

Ola John

Fijn om weer een Nederlander erbij te hebben. welkom op deze site

As you will discover this is one of the most fantastic sites in the world and far beyond.
There are 2000 plus members here that are all eager to help you with any question.

And remember there are two kinda rules:
1. there is no such thing as a stupid question
2. If there is a stupid question then it`s the one that is not asked

Are you ready for your new addiction???

Oh and have you got pics from your work. I and with me more people want to see what you are doing

Glad to have you on board dude

Dear John,

Welkom bij Armorama. Je kan zowel hier terecht als op het Nederlandstalig forum van deze site. Nice to have you on board.
PS : I'm a 1/16 modeler as well. Rare species. I'm interested to learn what you have built on that scale. That DragonWagon wouldn't be 1/16, would it ? #:-)

Welcome welcome. Love the handle. My first thought was "Man, 2000+ members and that's still available."

Welcome - you won't find a better site with friendlier people.

Welcome, John. The DW happens to be one of my favorite's as well. Here's the other links of the most popular:

http://www.ferreamole.it/images/Dragon/m25_dw_01.htm
http://digilander.libero.it/pmg/images/m25a1/m25a1_01.htm

These and the two Robert gave before are the most well known of the DW links. A friend of mine has expressed a desire to share some private pics as well, he says 150 or so, and as soon as I can scan them I will share. I also happen to have access to Allied-Axis #3 and Military Machines: DW, as well as a scanner, so if you know something specific you need, I can try to find it. As you can tell I am something of a fanatic, but it is a great kit. PM me if I can be of service. And welcome, once again.
