It was 1976 when I first took an interest in model aviation. I was 5 years old! For a long time I was limited to cleaning off the glow fuel on my father's models, but I managed to solo at the age of 8. Age 10 brought some new aircraft's and new challenges. I flew pattern for a few years until I discovered my true passion!† I soon learned that Giant Scale would become my modeling obsession and part time career. I have been flying Giant Scale Warbirds ever since, and I continue to grow my fleet of Warbirds.
