I started building when I was in the fifth grade and continued through college. After that life got in the way, but I never lost the desire to build again and about fourteen years ago I started building again. I build almost exclusively 1/48th scale aircraft and armor from WWII (especially german), because of their fun and varied camouflage schemes. Posting to this sight has been fun, and a great way to get new ideas from the feed back I receive and also seeing what others are doing.
