Welcome to my humble little web page. I'm 38 years old, trained as a
Mechanical Engineer at the University of Alberta in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada,
but currently living south of the 49th (and the Mason-Dixon line) in Oklahoma.
My engineering specialty (and what keeps me in new models) is the pump industry.

I've been modelling for as long
as I can remember, but really first "got serious" about it when my
younger brother gave me a Monogram P-40B kit for my birthday when I was about 14
or so. That was the first real attempt at using proper colours and
markings, and I was so pleased I've been at it ever since. As a modeller
who got his start in the '70s I'm really find I have a liking and soft spot for
many of the Monogram kits of that era.

Since that time I've added
airbrushes, compressors, hundreds of bottles of paint, a couple dozen X-acto
knives, 20 different grades of sandpaper, scores of strip styrene, plastic rod,
brass rod,........And let's not forget the tons of unbuilt kits!
My specialty is 1/48th scale aircraft, any era, although I do have a fondness for those with propellors on 'em! Every once in a while I'll do a 1/35th scale armour kit but those are few and far between.
