    I've posted here b4 but that didn't seem to go right.

    So here again:


    Hey all, I'd like to introduce myself.

    I'm a 30 year old man from The Netherlands, yea I know I'm old, at least I feel old (specially after coming from the gym just now). I've been interested into to aircraft and specially ww1 and 2 era fighters. I've been trolling for a while here reading up on several threads.

    Mainly the best tank killer and night fighter in WW2. And yes i always thought the Il2 was king and yes I thought the UHU was the best NF the Germans made.
    But I see the errors in my way.

    I hope I'm welcome here and my post my few cents on several matters.

    You're putting me on, right ? You're 30 and consider yourself old ? Gee..... I must be ancient or
    something. I believe I am the oldest active member of the forum, and I'm 76.

    Be that as it may, welcome to the forum....

    I vaguely remember thirty! Welcome from England - your previous posts were effected by the forum problems at the time.
