I'm an architect who actually started my career building architectural models. I began building back in the Revell, Monogram, and Aroura days starting out mostly with ships. When a certain T.V. show came along, featuring F4U Corsairs, I started building airplanes focusing on WWII subjects. As I get older I enjoy building models for myself as well as for others. Occasionally I'm lucky and get paid for my works but most of the time I build for free. It just depends on the situation. I also have found the joy and value in model photography. Every model I've built has been broken in some way or the other so having nice photographs of my hard work has been rewarding in many ways.
