About johncpo

Greetings all,

I have been building all sorts of models since around the 1950's beginning with a Viking ship and continuously growing in the hobby with hundreds of scale aircraft, ship, armor and figure kits for that past 50 years. I am the founder of "Hobbies in a Barn" and "Building Historic Dioramas" on Facebook and maintain a fair following on both pages.

With the "Hobbies in a Barn" pages I have shown off my own handywork and am available to custom build most scale models and dioramas as customers demand highly detailed models. Some of my work is published on complements of Will Kalif, founder of the site. I also actively pursue writing about various kits on  and the hobby dealer, all of which are familiar with my reviews and insight. In the past I have contributed to FSM starting in the late '80s with several fairly recent techniques to share. I also wrote several articles about a new landscaping product made from re-cycled rubber that makes a really good diorama base.

Please be sure to take a look at my works and be pleasently surprised at the results of what comes along in "Hobbies in a Barn"
