Started modeling preteens. My first kits; Aurora viking ship, the Black Falcon, later on the Endeavour and what is now called the Jolly Roger.  These models sat on my parents piano for years and parts of which now occupy the spares box. Some day I may bring them back to life. Got into the 1/72 airfix figures in a big way, making shadow boxes, vignettes etc. .

Stopped modelling when I moved and went to art college in the big city, married, then divorced, taught myself stationary engineering, owned and operated a photo studio, married again. Have two wonderful daughters, divorced again. When the girls were young and I was the primary caregiver, granted custody, stayed home and started modelling again.  Historex and Airfix figures hit me bad and I went sort of crazy.

Worked in the big city at OCAD University for 40 years, since April Fools 1979. Nice place to work, lots of bells and whistles.  Casting facilites in resin, bronze and other metals, all the shops including plastics so I played afterhours. Now retired.

Have now also moed to a smaller town. No matter how well things are packed, treasures still suffer some sort of harm. Setting up a new modelling space and looking forward to putting a dent in the stash.

Modelling everything imaginable. Stash consisits of ships, sci fi, figures, cars, planes and more. Big fan of YouTube. Lots of info there. Purchased a 2nd 3D scanner to start playing around, making all those bits and pieces that add that extra kick to the model. 

Lets see what happens.
