I am 56 years old and live in the SF bay area. I mostly build in 1/72 aircraft and will sometimes do something in 1/48 if the subject strikes my interest. I am also a volunteer aboard the USS Hornet CV/CVA/CVS-12 in Alameda, CA helping run the radio room and amateur radio station on board callsign NB6GC.
