Let me introduce myself…… My name is Michael Baskette. This website represents the culmination of a life-long interest in military history. I have been active in the militaria collecting hobby and an avid scale modeler for over 30 years. My primary area of interest is the war on WWII’s Eastern Front from 1941-1945. My personal collecting focus is on Soviet combat related uniforms, headgear, and equipment, with a strong interest in Soviet steel helmets. To complement my Soviet material, I maintain a strong representation of the Axis powers engaged on the eastern front as well, primarily Germany, Hungary & Romania. As a side, I am also interested in the American home front and dabble in rationing related material, and items associated with the WWII era Office of Civil Defense. Many viewing this site may recognize my name as I have made many friends through my hobbies over the years. I am a life member of the Ohio Valley Military Society, and I have been active in the Military Modeler’s Club of Louisville for 23 years. In addition, many will know me from my former position as U.S. Sales manager for Ostfront Militaria.
I am also active on several of the web forums, Primarily the Wehrmacht Awards Forum and War Relics Forum, and occasionally a couple of the others. My nickname across all forums in which I participate is “Wesley’s Dad”. In addition to the forums, I am active on several Facebook militaria hobby and Buy/Sell pages. Similarly, I do sell on eBay from time to time and my user name is “Frontovik41”. So if you are considering an item offered under this user name in one of these venues you can be confident that it is me you are dealing with.
