This hobby that we indulge in is just amazing, we build, in scale, replicas of the original, look at references and pictures and read the History to create the model as accurately as we can, we even try to tell a story in diorama’s. How many late nights, long hours we dedicate in the pursuit of the elusive “perfect model”.
I am a 51 year old Project Manager that loves Flying and Aircraft, I have a wonderful Wife and Daughter, and this Hobby, I am Blessed. I build Aircraft in 1/32 scale and I have built a few aircraft in 1/24 scale, from WW2 to the Vietnam era. I am also very much into scratch building 1/32 scale civil aircraft.
