I've been an avid modeler since I was 9 years old. My Father was in the US Air Force so I have always been addicted to aircraft. My first kit was a Hasegawa 1/72 T-38A. I remember getting glue everywhere and not painting it. My skills have improved over the years but to me not to contest level. I dropped out of modeling for about a year after I was diagnosed with Muscular Dystrophy. But I couldnt stay out long. Now I'm back in and love it. Starting to build up a nice collection of Jets right now, but will also do WWII and newer prop jobs. I mainly build 1/48 scale but will go 1/72 for larger aircraft...My holy grail airplane would be the old Aurora 1/108 scale C-141A Starlifter. My dad built me one of those when I was a kid and wish I still had it.
