Since my childhood I followed flight and first models Airfix and Frog, assembling kits of airplanes, tanks and figures always with more details and research of their history and collecting thousands of books of historical and modelling interest. This passion introduce me to military career like pilot of helicopter Agusta Bell 206 at the School of Italian Army Light Air Force in Viterbo from where I was assigned at the air base of 23rd Squadron ERI in Bresso, near Milano. Here I started the cooperation with the model shop Al Soldatino and, after I got leave by Army, I began one of the owners and here I imported all the most important kits and accessories produced in the world. Also I created a firm now well known by Italian modelers, RCR Models, producing photoetched sets for Italian kits and resin kits.
