Hello, I'm Rob. I'm a retired USAF Master Sergeant and Aircraft Structural Mechanic.
I started building models at age 6, and built religeously up until 1993, and stopped for some reason. I'd always wanted to get back into it, so my beautiful wife bought me a 1:48 Revell A-10 model as a retirement gift when I left the Air Force in 2009, In 2011, I finally got around to starting it, and I must say it came out pretty good!
Since then, I've built over 30 kits. Most are on display in glass showcases at the USAF Tech Training School I teach at; along with my students' models.
In February 2014, I began holding modeling workshops with some of my students after class 2 days a week. It has been wildly successful! Even Females who have never built models turned out some of the nicest I've seen out of amateurs! I actually have some fellow instructors building their first models!
My Airbrushing skills have gotten much better, and so has my overall model building. I joined IPMS and joined the local club / chapter last Fall, I've learned A LOT from those guys!
My taste in models generally hovers around 1:48 scale, but I enjoy the added challenge of cramming tons of detail into 1:72 also.
