About Me

I built my first model of a Hawk T-33 in 1960. Been hooked ever since.


I have been an Aeronautical Engineer for McDonnell Douglas/Boeing since 1978, and an IPMS/USA member since 1979 (#12894). As a member of Gateway IPMS in St. Louis, Missouri since 1979, I've been Chapter President, Chapter VP, Chapter Contact, and other offices. For 6 years (1990-1996), when my job took me to Houston, Texas, I helped run the Galveston Bay Area Scale Modelers (GBASMA) chapter. When the job moved back to St. Louis in 1996, so did I.


I was appointed (to fill an un-expired term) as IPMS/USA 2nd VP in Jan 1993, and served until Jan 2000, when I had to step down to take care of my parents. I am very proud that many of the innovations I fought for are now considered to be standard features of IPMS/USA National Conventions.


I was one of the first 6 OJTs when the program began in 1984, and have judged almost every year since, except for the few years that I wasn't able to attend. Yes, I take IPMS/USA Conventions seriously. As an aircraft builder, I started judging Aircraft categories, and now work mostly in Miscellaneous & Dioramas. You will find me working at the Scorer's table after I finish my categories, something I've been doing since the Miami Convention in 1990.
