Dear All,
   I am a 63 years old medical doctor from Florence, Italy, a modeller with an extremely scarce production, but with a keen interest in aircraft colours, and old enough to own an original copy of the FS 595 A.
   I do have a strong interest in Russian WWII colours, so I could not afford not to be present in this very knowledgeable forum.
   Best regards

Benvenuto!  Grin
I am from another ancient italian city, but not so sunny now: Genoa.

Benvenuto indeed, Daniele! This is the best English-language forum for Soviet aircraft, and we've certainly covered a lot regarding VVS GPW colours. If you have any questions regarding the Il-2 Shturmovik, I'm reasonably knowledgeable about that particular aeroplane. Enjoy the site!

Best Regards,

Thanks to Otto,
   Judging from the TV news, I hope you are not from the part of Genoa that has been badly affected by the flood, and best wishes that from now on you will have at least a little bit of sun in Genoa!
   And thanks to Learstang: having followed the forum for some time before becoming a member, I suspect that you are “reasonably knowledgeable” about many more things than the Iliushin IL-2…
   Thank you again to all, and I WILL enjoy the site!

Hi Daniele,
sorry for the late welcome, but I was (I am still) in my bed for an ernia, so I had limited access to the computer. A phisician would have been very welcome.
I am from Pagnacco close to Udine, that is known as a rainy land but can be lovely sunny when I must stay home.
Otto, I followed the flood of Genoa at the TV. My nephew works there at Costa Crociere. I hope that the worst things have passed now.
Regards
Massimo

Mandi fantat tu ses furlan ancje tu?
   Thank you very much Massimo, I have been living in Florence for 50 years, but I was born in Codroipo, nearby Pagnacco, so we are both Furlans!
   I am answering late to your welcome, because I have been to Le Bourget, and I hope to post on my visit very soon.
   Thank you for all your work with the site, and for discussing things with moderation and a good temper in a field where many have only fierce opinions!
Best regards
And wishes for staying soon well and out of bed

Hi Daniele,
yes, I'm born in Udine, I live in Pagnacco after my marriage. To be honest, I don't speak furlan but I can understand it.
Florence? Do you know Mario Pieri, Fabrizio D'Isanto e Giorgio (sorry, I don't remember his family name now, but he is well documented on Soviet planes) too?
Thank you for your wishes, now I can stay on my feet and seat but for no more than ten minutes each time. In the first two weeks, I had even difficulties to change my position in my bed.
Regards
Massimo

Hi Massimo,
   I am a vascular medicine specialist, not a surgeon, but for what I know, you should have overcome the worst period.
   Unluckily, even one minute of pain is much longer than one hour modelling, and I can imagine that you are eager to resume your normal daily life.
   I do not know the other people from Florence, as I am still working (hard), I have other hobbies, and my modelling activity is associated with a PC much more than with other human beings!
Regards
Daniele

Thank you for your empathy! I had only a few water on my garage's floor, many of my fellow citizens were not so lucky.
Best wishes for your hernia, Massimo!

Hi Daniele,
yes, the worst time looks passed, but I fear that I won't restart working for many weeks. Unfortunately I can't modelling nor drawing profiles while in my bed. Anyway, my past summer let me build an unexpected number of tanks (no, not Soviet planes).

Hi Otto,
thank you for your wishes. I'm happy that you haven't suffered too much for the flood.

Regards
Massimo
