About me:
Hello fellow modelers. I am a retired U.S. Army aviator, Chief Warrant Officer 3. I have been a model builder since age 13, and I am more into the hobby now than ever. Love to discuss kits, and building ideas. I flew the UH-1H/V Huey, and the CH-47D Chinook in the Army, so I guess those are my favorite helicopters. I look forward to posting some pics and looking at yours too.
Before being an Army pilot, I was a loadmaster in the U.S. Air Force. I flew in the C-130E/H, and HC-130H/P/N versions of the Hercules. Any information you need to help your C-130 model look better, let me know.

My biggest interests go towards "Retro" modeling. Trying those kits from my youth a second time, with the skills I have acquired through the years.
