Hello! My focus is on military aircraft, warships, and armor from all eras with a little bit of Le Mans GT and prototype, and F1 racing, thrown in to liven things up.
I’ve been building on and off (mostly off) since I was a kid. Like most boys in the early 1970’s, I built models by AMT, Lindberg, Monogram, Revell, and Testors. An “exotic” kit would have been something from Europe like Matchbox, Italeri, ESCI, or Airfix. I discovered cars/guitars/girls as a teenager, joined the military, went to college, got married, and finally picked up modeling again.
I joined the Fame Cities chapter of IPMS-USA and began participated in shows and contests, winning regional and national awards. In 2009, I packed house and moved cross country. Although I’ve had a workbench and spraybooth setup since, I’ve never really got back into a building routine. I keep buying and trying though.
In the real world, I live in Fort Walton Beach, Florida where I own a marketing agency and commercial photography studio. My other interests are photography, playing the guitar, and combat flight simulators.
