About me

Name:Calvin Gifford

About me:
Retired from U.S. Military. Have been building models about 50 years. Collected about 3,500 so far. Mostly military aircraft, but also armor, ships, cars, Sci-Fi - basically almost anything. I also volunteer a lot of time and built models to the local museums & veterans organizations, particularly the U.S. Naval Museum of Armament & Technology, the local VFW Ship 4084, American Legion and Kern County Veterans Museum.
