Welcome to my personal plastic modeling page. My name is Rogério "Rato" Marczak. I'm a professor of the Mechanical Engineering Department  at UFRGS, Porto Alegre, Brazil.
Here you'll find things related to my hobby. Everything here is under construction, and I'll be adding new material as time permits. If you have comments or suggestions, please
drop me a line

  • May 3rd.2017: Antrvm Ratvs reached 250k visits this week, not counting the direct accesses to the articles. I couldn't imagine this figure even in my craziest dreams. A big thank you to all friends, modelers, companies and visitors for all your support and interest. And yes, I'll keep it as a non-sponsored site.
