Hi my name is David, I'm originally from the West Texas town of El Paso and I'm currently living in Hampton, Virginia next door to Langley Air Force Base, I've been building models since my old man brought home a Revell 1/82 or so A3J Vigilante. I remember him saying, "wait for the glue to dry!", I was so eager to play with it. I must have been 5 or 6 at the time. Ever since then I've been hooked by scale modeling. Now I'm more a collector (some would say a sick hoarder) than builder I still enjoy modeling very much.

Some of my models are recent builds and some are old, but I don't think that matters. I'm a photographer and have worked as one professionally and currently I work for a camera manufacturer assisting customers. I grew up building Airfix kits sold under the MPC label in the US. I'm a film shooter but do have digital cameras as well.
