Here You can read my short biography and few words about my hobby.
HELLO, MY NAME IS...
Who am I? My name is Lukasz (Lukas). I live in Poland. I am a hobbyist modeller, interested to build plastic models. But not only. Also, I'm trying to build a paper models.
WHY I CHOSE THIS HOBBY?
Because it is fascinating to build miniature of real vehicle, plane or building. Sometimes it takes so much time. But after finishing building the model, the final result makes me lucky. This hobby really relax me.
WHO TELLS ME ABOUT THIS HOBBY?
My dad. Since I can remember I very liked the models that were built by my dad. Every little boy is fascinated by airplanes and tanks. I also wanted to have in my collection models such as tanks and airplanes.
WHEN DID IT START?
I do not remember. But I heard that was about six years when I have builded my first model. I do not know what was name of it. Surely it was one of those Polish models. Maybe it was P.11c or PZL.37 “Łoś”. In late 80’s and early 90’s it was hard to buy models in Poland. Especially in small towns. When I could not build the models because they were not in stores, I built models from Lego bricks. Lego helped me survive hard times without models.
I was trying use everything that I have found in home. I have collected old knives, scissors, waste sandpaper, file for wood pliers. I was painting the models with acrylic paints for children. When I grown up, my dad gave me one of his scalpels, a small file, tweezers and a new sheet of sandpaper. But it was when I turned 10 years.
I note that I do not work in the profession of constructor! So why I have chose this nickname? It started when I first signed on Polish forum for modellers. I was thinking about nickname. Earlier I have never use any nickname in Internet before. It was my fist contact with online forum. One day I remembered the toys called "SMALL CONSTRUCTOR" (LITTLE CONSTRUCTOR) - outside Polish borders, it is called MECANO. It was best under the Sun toy for every young man! Almost good as Lego. So I chose nickname - Constructor. I can say that thanks to this toy I became a constructor.
"CONSTRUCTOR'S ORIGIN. - Look Jack, what a beautiful car I bought you..."
