How did I get back to modeling


Work, household chores made me forget about my hobby for a while. At some point, I changed jobs and started working at home. I was making books.

By that time I already knew book layout and photo editing programs. And I have been familiar with CAD programs for a long time. Ever since I was an engineer.

Once, with my little son, I came across old magazines called “Maly” at home. The son saw bright covers with airplanes and ships and was very interested. Then we began to build a Li-2 transport aircraft.

Then another idea came up. The son drew an armored car. Having looked at the drawing, I suggested that he make a model from this drawing. He agreed and we started work.

We made drawings, and then we began to build together. When the armored car was built, I decided to try to make a magazine. In imitation of the legendary magazine “Maly Modelarz” or Maly, from my childhood. I made a magazine based on his motives. In deference to this publishing house.

That’s what happened. I had no color printer that time.

Unfortunately I can’t find my son’s drawing of an armored car….
