Here is a report with plenty of photos of our visit to the MPM company located near Prague in the Czech Republic. The company is well known for its excellent and always very interesting short run and resin aircraft model kits.

Well, I take full responsibility for our delay on day one, but this time it was definitely not my fault! Not to mention that you drove in the wrong direction for several minutes despite I told you otherwise ....

cheers

Jean-Luc does not drink coffee .. which is the only thing that I find suspect about him

Too his defense I must say that he could not go the other direction

cheers

Hi Jean-Luc

Great article! It looks like a modeller's paradise - a giant modelling den! I wish I could have seen it in person.

I'm really looking forward to the Breda 65 - the test shot looks a real beauty!

All the best

Wow, very intriguing Jean-Luc and a great article.
All that time and effort in producing the kits we buy, and we stick them in the stash for a couple of years .
