Like some modelers, I started building models as a kid with my first model being a twin engine prop plane when I was about nine years old. I entered my first model contest when I was 10, winning first place with a Pan-Am 747. I built models in practically every subject, mostly cars and aircraft, and my model building reached its peak when I was 16. That's when I bought Revell's large three foot tea clipper "Cutty Sark" which to this day, still has some sails to be added in order to completely finish it.

After a hiatus of about 10 years, I got back into modeling in the late '80s when I built the Original Series U.S.S. Enterprise. Through some of my friends I got involved with the Maritime Science Fiction Modelers group, which enabled me to learn more skills and hone my model building. Star Trek has been my main model building subject for a few years, but I have since broadened my horizons to include cars, other sci-fi subjects and military ships and aircraft.
