Been modeling since I was 8. My father got me involved and it’s been my number one hobby all this time. I’am 60 now and have begun to pull away from 1/72 (to small) 1/32nd “looks” real good now! I’ve been working in the hobby field for almost 30 years.
As a artist and designer for hobby magazines an illustrator for books and even a stint as an assistant manager at a hobby shop. Love to build everything, aviation and armor being top now.

Started 2016, first finished 2017

Nice kit, typical Tamyia, add glue, shake box, done! Parts breakdown was interesting, track, rollers, drive gear all one piece. Gave me a chance to use Panzer Putty to mask with and it worked great. Didn’t pull off any paint […]

Big Bertha wip

Russian T5 torpedo boat

This is the Merit 1/35 scale kit. It’s been quite awhile since I posted anything or finished anything but here we go. The kit was a very nice build, no flash or ejector pin marks tha show up. The hull […]

Typhoon update

Closed up, landing gear details, filling and sanding next. Might have to take out a lone to pay for all the paint for this thing!

Airfix 1/24 Typhoon Lots of PARTS

Starting to look like sumpin. Lots of scraping and sanding, but the plastic is soft so it goes fast!

D Day build stopping the Beaufighter (lost interest) going to build this L4

Needed a fresh start I still have time so here we go!

Base done, olive drab coat on the Huey

This is the Verlinden helo base with a Hobby Boss UH-1C that I added the weapons mounts and 40mm grenade launcher “borrowed” from the Monogram hog kit. Still working on the D-Day Beaufighter too! Can’t just do 1 thing at […]

1/32 scale HE 162, No longer a WIP

The Revell of Germany rerelease. Always liked the lines on this fighter and having been a VW nut (“the peoples car”) why wouldn’t I like the Volksjager (“peoples fighter”) This was a great kit for the money, this is OOB […]

Repost with finished base

Sorry to post again, but this is the first base/ground cover I’ve ever done! Thanks Mr.Mike R for the help. I’ve found something thats almost as much fun as modeling so there are more bases that will be made! (May […]
