I am retired from the military. I spent 11 years in the US Army having served with the 101st ABN when it was paratroopers only at Ft. Campbell, 82d ABN Div at ft. Bragg and the 173d ABN Brigade in Vietnam and the 1st Cav Div at Ft. Hood. I am a paratrooper and miss the jumps but am a disabled vet now. I also spent 10 years in the film/video biz as a lighting director and gaffer. My education is as a paleontologist/geologist and I also do oil and watercolor painting and also do research for Civil War book writers.
Kids are all grown and gone and no wifey now to tell me to stop modeling and pay attention to her. LOL. I love to scratchbuild vehicles that may seem hard to do or there are no kits of them. I also do German armor and do as much scratchbuilding of them as possible w/o using aftermarket items until I just hit that brick wall.
