Claude Joachim, an immensely talented modeller, hails from the beautiful principality of Luxembourg. Although Luxembourg was a small country without aspirations for world domination, It's position in the centre of the Ardennes meant it would not escape the ravages of the Second World War. Whilst the German invasion of 1940 passed with little drama, the winter of '44/'45 would prove to be very different. Claude has been inspired by the history of the small village of Clervaux, and it's castle. He has recreated the castle as it was, when occupied by the advancing American Army, and not content with building the castle, and it's interior, entirely from scratch, he is also building part of the village that surrounds it. The painstaking detail and effort that has gone into the castle, and the remainder of the village, can be followed in his various blogs in the forum.
