Retired USAF [1971 - 1994] and Union Pacific Railroad [1998 - 2013] Safety Engineer. Been making models and stuff since 8th grade on and off. About 11 years ago, I started trying to sculpt original scratchbuilt pieces and have been at it since then. I find sculpting peaceful and fulfilling. I can go to work on something, lose track of time and zen out for hours. Everybody should have something like that in their life. I count myself mightly lucky to have found it.
All the best,
