Born 1956 in Burg Stargard, Mecklenburg-Vorpommern, Germany, I'm living since 1958 in Neubrandenburg, Mecklenburg-Vorpommern. In my daily job I'm working as an IT technician for a local publishing company. Already very early in my live I became interested in military technology, mainly tanks and aircrafts. In 2001 my first book "Der Panzerkampfwagen 35(t)" was published by Motorbuch Verlag. Via Detlev Terlisten I met Heiner Duske who encouraged me to support Nuts & Bolts. Since 2008 I'm the layouter of this series. As I have specialised in the Pz.Kpfw. II, I prepared in 2009 the Nuts & Bolts Vol. 24 "Pz.Kpfw. II Ausf. D/E and variants", Vol. 28 "Maultiere", Vol. 30 "Nebel-, Panzer- und Vielfachwerfer" and more to come in the future.
Editor: For Nuts & Bolts Joachim has taken over the layout from Vol.21 to Vol.35 and more to come. Thank you, Joachim, excellent cooperation
