Professional psychologist, father of four, musician, modeler, lecturer. Tired.

My modeling defaults are building dioramas and WWII aircraft. Enjoy WW2 history, reading, single malt scotch whisky (without the ‘e’), music, good food, bit of philosophy, and general history.

‘iModeler at the Movies’ – Part 7.

Paolo Ruffulo’s exquisite build from ‘The Empire Strikes Back’ (in my mind, the best of the Star Wars canon) is Jango Fett’s ‘Slave I’ which, as you all know, is a modified Firespray-31-class patrol and attack craft used produced by a subsid[...]

Imodeler at the Movies

Well, I’ve been trying to post the ‘final’ iModeler at the Movies all evening. Keep getting error codes, but working on the problem, be here soon. David.

iModeler at the Movies

Well, it must be a great show that survives a poor host. 101 members, 85 topics, and way more than 2,000 posts! Despite (or perhaps because of) my absence recently - this Group has been an outstanding success in terms of bringing the c[...]
