    Hello from Greece!

    Post  Panos Gaoutsis on Thu Jun 06, 2013 12:44 pm

    Good day to everyone!
    Thank you for accepting me to your community!

    I am Panos and i live in Corfu island, Greece. If my last name looks familiar to you, yes, i have roots from Malta! Though, i do not speak the language, since the first family member that moved to Corfu, dates back five generations and the last name has been modified to the Greek language.

    A few words about me. I mostly build modern jet fighters in 1/48th scale, using brush and enamel paints. I prefer not using aftermarket products, as i don't mind if my models lacking of detail or aren't accurate enough, but i sometimes like making minor improvements with some scratchbuilding.
    Overall, i find this hobby a relaxing and creative way to pass my leisure time!

    Give me some time to learn the forum's functions and i will get back to you soon with some of my models!
    Kind regards

    Thank you all for the warm welcome!
    My surname's origin is Gauci but as i previously mentioned, it has been modified, in contrast to other Maltese people living in Corfu who kept their initial surnames during their first years in Greece.

    I have already posted a Mirage 2000 on finished models and i am going to show you a few more as soon as i clean them from dust and take better pictures! And a work in progress as well.
    I'm currently building another Mirage 2000N in red flag camouflage from Kinetic.
