Our third installment of introducing welcomes Ralf Schuster from NNT Modell + Buch in Germany. NNT Modell has a long standing history in modelling and in addition to stocking Colourcoats has a broad range of Aircraft, Armour & Naval products & an expansive collection of literature.
The company NNT Modell+Buch was founded as by Mrs. Niklová-Thiel in January 1996 with the support by her husband. The range offered by NNT Modell + Buch included plastic-kits, resin-kits from small companies, a big range of accessories (conversion kits, photo-etched parts, decals etc.) and respective literature. The popularity with customers proved that the company had chosen the correct way in offering real "specialities".
In 1999 NNT Modell expanded into its own range of resin cast ships. Now there are 26 kits in the range, of which until now 8 have been awarded "model of the year" by the German modelling magazine Modell Fan. The NNT range was extended with accessory parts and turned brass barrels.
Mrs. Niklova Thiel retired in the year 2013 and Ralf Schuster took over the company.
Ralf grew up in Karlsruhe,South-West Germany where his family lives. He has a history in market research before he took over NNT Modell. Ralf has been an active modeller since he was a young boy with his main interest in ships, especially in 1/700 scale. Over the years he became a specialist in this topic and built up contacts with international producers.
He is a long standing member of the IG Waterline, the largest private modellers-society in Germany for waterline kits, attends fairs and exhibitions regularly and has written many kit reviews for different publications.
He has taken the opportunity to make his hobby his profession and continues the line of NNT products.
Ralf has been a longtime stockist of Colourcoats from before Sovereign Hobbies took over the range. We are pleased to be working with NNT Modell and supplying Colourcoats to the European market.
