About mustang1989

Joined Army at 19 and became a UH-1H Huey crewchief with the US Army which was the best job I ever had. I met my wife Dianna at Ft. Polk La on my last duty assignment. I brought her to my hometown and were married on Mar 2, 1996. After that pursued employment with my dad for a year in the independent auto repair business until I decided to go to work with GM as a service technician. Stayed employed with dealers and was enlisted in the Army National Guard in 2001 as a wheeled vehicle mechanic. Little did I know that I would be working on M109 Self Propelled howitzers which turned out to be a good experience. I now work as an auto tech for a Fleet Service Department at a local refinery. 

 I've been modeling now for 41 years on and off since I was 11 years old. I strayed from it for around 10 years this last time and got serious about it in 2011 and have been building non stop since. I started out with 1/48 WWII subjects and then switched to Auto modeling in 2014 because I needed to work on my painting / weathering skills. In the last year or so I've worked a couple of aircraft onto the bench and feel better about my skills as an aircraft modeler than I did 7 years ago. I've been on FSM since 2012 and have met some really good people here as well as abroad. With that.....we'll probably meet up somewhere on the forums here. See ya round, Joe
