I’ve been a plastic builder since I was a kid in the Sixties, back in the days of tube glue.
Back in the Eighties, I used to hang out at a shop called Harper’s Hobbies in San Bernardino, where the masters would teach you all the tricks of the trade. Then I worked at a hobby shop in Riverside, CA, called Tomcat Hobbies.
I build primarily aircraft and armor. My present projects are a Takom USMC M60A1 ERA, and a Zoukei Mura 1/48 USMC F-4J with a boatload of aftermarket pieces. Also, on the block is an Academy F-4B in 1/48 in USMC livery.
