My name is John Zybowski (AKA: JohnZman). I'm 66 years young and retired. I was born, and grew up on Long Island,til the age of 18. I am a USAF Vietnam era vet('68-'72). I was trained and worked as a Jet Engine mech,on an engine performance "test cell". I was Honorably discharged with the rank of Staff sergeant.

My working career(s), span 40+ years. I was a licensed Aircraft and Powerplant (A&P) mechanic,working with corporate Turbo-prop and business jet aircraft.

I was a ASE certified Master Technician,when I worked in the automotive industry. Certified Master Toyota tech,certified Lexus tech,til 1998.

I tested,and was hired by the US Postal service and worked as a mail distribution/window clerk since 2001.

Retired now,living in Corpus Christi,TX. I'm fortunate to have my own Model building workshop. In the backyard,separate from the house. A 10x16 workshop with lots of lighting,and A/C. I built a home-made Spray booth (20x20x24 deep) hard ducted thru-the wall and a 6 Gal. Super quiet air compressor.(Calif. Air Tools)

My favorite modeling subjects : Cars( open wheel asphalt modifieds,early,old school rods,mild street customs from the '50's-'60's,and some muscle cars) Aircraft( Cold War/Vietnam era USAF fighters and bombers,"Golden Age" of aviation Air Racers and Fighters) Large scale Motorcycles (1/8-1/9)
