I’m a crippled old guy who works mostly on 1/72 scale Between-the-Wars aircraft and WWII Allied aircraft, though severe arthritis is making it so that I’m beginning to do more 1/48 scale. I came back to modeling only recently, and some of my builds look like kits that have been assembled by a crippled old guy. But I do the best I can given the circumstances, and I have a lot of fun building the kits.

Before disability forced me into retirement I was a scholar in Folklore, World Literature, and Comparative Literature who specialized in Germanic, Celtic, and Finno-Ugrian languages. I have, sadly, left that behind for the most part, and now I spend as much of my time as my ailments allow me building models or reading books.
