My name is Chris Graeter, I am in my 40's and have been modeling since I was a kid. I remember building Revel and Monogram planes, ships, and armour. Shep Paine was a major inpact on me when I was young. For the past 20yrs I have built mostly armour models. I have three children, two boys and a girl. All of my children have built models and I love the joy I get from passing on my love of building models to them. I am a regular at model contest in the area. I live in Colchester, VT. I am a IPMS member with the IPMS Champlain Valley , Plattsburg, NY chapter and the local Mt. Mansfield modelers club localed in Essex Jct., VT.
