Association with Other Modeling Clubs:

Modeling Areas of Interest:

Mainly build aircraft, but enjoy building a few hot rods and muscle cars, and dabbling with ships and armor.


Modeling Skills:


I guess I’m a “jack of all trades, master of none. I think I’m a pretty good modeler, and competent at most modeling techniques, but I wouldn’t call myself an expert at any of them.




I do well at the local contests, a lot of 1st and 2nd places, I did take a first and second at a Noreastcon I entered a few years back.


I don’t build for contests, I build for my own satisfaction and enjoyment. If I enter and place, that’s great, if not that’s fine too.


Other Hobbies:


Flying r/c aircraft, playing golf.
