Here's me, trying to steal old Su-7 fighter-bomber...

My name's Jiří, but friends call me Hawkins. I'm from southern Czechia, aged ((5^2)+1), and married to a lovely young lady, no kids yet. I have a degree in electronics and worked in industrial automation for a short while. Now I'm a nuclear engineer.

Also, military and cold war history buff, gun, train, aviation, astronomy, science, electronics, PC gaming, tea, and tinkering enthusiasts, pet rabbit owner, metal music connoisseur.

I build models since pre-teen years, and I picked-up wargaming in 2014. I sometimes skipped lunches at school to save allowance money to buy kits. No need for that now since I make money, but I sometimes do commission painting to make something extra, and to excercise and improve my painting.

Imperial Guard, and later Adeptus Mechanicus was a natural choice for me, same as the Enforcers, as I wanted to be a policeman.

There was plenty of things I wanted to be. Train driver, policeman, soldier, gunsmith, pilot... None of that happened. However, I was a professional model builder for a while, and a part-time actor.
