Hi all, my name is Sk8. The username Sk8xtrm is one I have had for a very long time and the nickname sk8 is a nickname I have been known by for a long time. At no point in time did I think I would be making a YouTube channel or website with such an odd username. If I had known I would have picked something a little more comprehensible but here we are and I am sticking with it.

Tankfest 2017

So what do you need to know, well I am 30 years old, father of three and I am a massive petrol head/car enthusiast. I grew up working on cars, obviously older cars but its just so much fun building, fixing, refurbishing and doing up the cars, engines and generally anything mechanical I could get my hands on.

As I got older I developed an interest in military history and to be little more specific….which is where these two hobbies combined…Tanks! Heavy metal machinery, big guns, big engines, the smell of burnt fuel, oil and the noise they produce. What’s not to love!

Then came World of Tanks specifically World of Tanks Blitz as it allowed me to play tanks around my life, around my job, my family. It is accessible, convenient and a barrel of laughs. Aside from Blitz I enjoy World of Tanks Console and World of Warships Blitz.

Finally, when I do get a little bit of downtime to relax and chill out I will take the time to work on my model tank collection which is now taking up two shelves in my man cave. All of them are 1/35 scale and below is a quick example of my KV2.
