I am a 14 year Coast Guard veteran with an honorable discharge in 1997 as an E6 Electronic Technician. I enjoy ships, both plastic and wood, aircraft of all kinds all eras, armor, Science fiction, cars, just about anything that can be modeled. Pretty much, if it can be modeled, I would or will try to build it. Years ago I also scratch built and flew .40 - .90 size radio control airplanes although I neither have the space or money for that anymore.
Like many others it seems, I left the hobby for 15 years and returned to it in 2014 and found much had changed.
Currently I have two daughters and 4 grandchildren and am back to being an electronic technician after several other job lines.
