Hello,

My name is Mark Bivens and I live in Perth, Western Australia. I work as a psychologist in the state education system and was a member of the Australian Army Reserve from 1980 to 87.

I have been modelling since I was four years old and am active in a couple of the local modelling clubs. I build in most genres but have had a strong interest in the IDF for many years.

Partly that is due to, when my family emigrated from the UK in early 1967 we were on one of the last passenger ships to transit the Suez Canal before it was closed to shipping due to increasing military activity. I have very distinct memories of extremely low-flying jets going overhead.

I have been following some of the topics on the board for a little while, having encountered it whilst doing research for my build of the Tamiya M-51 and I hope to have something worthwhile to contribute now and then.

Best wishes to everyone,

Mark

Welcome Mark,

We have lots of Kiwis and Kangaroos (ANZAC)
It shows something about the tight connection between ANZAC and the Erez Israel during WW1.
No wonder so many of you, great people, likes the subject of IDF modeling.

You will feel at home, Mark

All the best,
Michael

Thank you Michael.

I think there is a connection between Sabras and ANZACs - we are both used to fighting against long odds in battle.

One of those was the Light Horse charge at Beersheeba 96 years ago last week, in 1917.

Again, thank you for your welcome and all you have contributed on this forum.

Have a great day :)

Mark
