Goodbye 2014 and welcome 2015 !

2014 was a very good year. For me it was a year of hobbyistic and domestic progression. As for my blog it developed much better than I thought:

During 2014 I managed to deliver 92 posts which is 18 posts more than I wrote in 2014. An increase of about 24% which I didn't intend. It just happened when my hobby activities rose.

In 2014 my humble blog collected 77.500 visits which is more attention than it had during the two years before. I'm absolutely stunned by the support my sober work is receiving and cannot say more than "Thank you very much indeed, chaps!"

As in 2012 and 2013 my highly appreciated readers came from all around the world. Especially USA - 26%, Germany - 19%, United Kingdom - 10%, Russian Federation - 8% and France - 6%.
It's fascinating how small our hobby world became with the use of Facebook, blogging and all those other web 2.0 related features...

But what was inside Monty's Caravan last year?

Some impressions... Have a look:

So that was 2014 more or less...

To you all a very happy New Year and all the best for 2015 !
I hope you'll stay favourably inclined towards Monty's Caravan.


  1. Hallo Monty,
    grüße aus dem WW-Land. Sag mal...du kennst Bernard Hennen ? Du spielst gar mit ihm ? Ich bin beeindruckt. Ebenso von deiner Paintstation....wie hast Du deine Frau dazu überreden können ?

    Ansonsten..coole Arbeit..cooles workout. Alles beste und liebe !

    and International: All the best to you and your family.


    1. Viele Grüße zurück in den Westerwald !
      Ja, stimmt, seit ein paar Jahren spiele ich im gleichen Klub.

      Das mit dem Maltisch ging relativ einfach. Den Bedarf hat sie anerkannt und dann musste nur noch ein gefälliges Möbelstück gefunden werden. ;-)

      Dir und den Deinen auch alles Gute !

  2. Happy New Year!

    A very impressive 2014 and best wishes for an even more productive 2015!

  3. Happy New Year!

    Your 2014 was certainly very eventful with family additions and hobby related activities! Your demo was one of my favorites at Crisis and your Tactica demo sure seemed great judging from all the photos and from the hype that it received from some of my clubmates that had visited Tactica.

    1. Thanks for your kind words about Crisis and Tactica. When you make it there again I would appreciate to meet you there in person.

  4. The addition of a little one to the family makes every part of life better. How I envy you that. I'm waiting on grandbabies!

    I hope this year is as good as last!

    1. Actually I would appreciate to stay waiting for the next twenty years or so... ;-)

  5. I enjoyed following your blog through the last year and certainly will do this year! Let me say you got quite some nice stuff done the last year, so I'm eagerly awaiting what you'll come along this year.
    Unfortunately we won't meet at TACTICA this year as some private issues got in the way :-(

  6. A lovely post Stefan and great to see your lovely work again - the participation game still looks wonderful!>

  7. Excellent overview of the past year! Best thing: picture from the 1/1 models somewhere in the middle!
    Happy New Year to you and your family!


  8. What a cracking year it was - I really enjoyed watching it all unfold on your blog.

    Best wishes for an equally enjoyable 2015 Stefan!

  9. ...p.s. A very Happy New Year too! :D

  10. A great year indeed! Congratulations on successfully joggling family life and such a high quality blog! Seems both enjoyed progress in 2014:0) Looking forward to 2015!

  11. All great stuff. Happy New Year Stefan!

  12. Many thanks for your good wishes!
    I'm happy to have you year and appreciate your comments very much.

  13. The feedback on your blog speaks for itself Stefan, always a joy to visit.
    Happy New Year to you,

  14. A happy new year to you to Monty!!!
