  1. Hello I was Miguel Vukelic´s fiancee when he translated Dr Stermans model. Believe or not he enjoyed it very much.

    Miguel passed away in December 2006 and he would be so happy to see the funny recognition you had made of his job. He got really enthusiastic with SD and had developed a model on energy demand he was ready rçto commercialize at the time he died.

    Thanks so much again for this recognition. I really appreciate it.

    1. Victoria,

      I’m so sorry to hear that Miguel has passed away. I hoped to meet him at some point. I’m glad that I can provide this little bit of recognition.

      I absolutely believe that he enjoyed it. Replicating models is an under-appreciated art, but quite rewarding at times. Sterman’s model is quite an important one and I’m glad to have it in this library.

      Thank you for reaching out.


  2. Hi Tom,
    I’ve tried to download Miguel’s replica of Sterman’s model, but it’s not really working. Is the link broken somehow?
    Thanks for any help.
