I started building models at the age of 10. I watched my brothers build before that. At around 15 I stopped with building and went on to other things. In my 20's I started building again, and have ever since. Well at least started but never finished a model. I was a mechanic for 25 years, working on diesels and on to automotive. In the year 2000, I was contracted to the U.S. government in law enforcement. I was unemployed in December 2013. Now working on HEAVY,HEAVY equipment at a gold mine.
My collection has grown to well over 1900 models, automotive, military, and Sci-Fi included. I live in the southern California desert...Joe
