  1. I have completed and published a long interview with Mr. William Blackmore who is the founder, owner and shop labor of Cottage Industry Models. William is a long-time modeler and member of IPMS who has won a number of Nationals competitions and is known for going his own, unique way in the modeling world. He is the first, and probably only, person to have designed, built and created kits for the only accurate model of the Confederate submarine Hunley, both in small scale and large scale cut-away versions. On the opposite end of the spectrum from the large modeling companies, Cottage Industry Models has had an enormous but quiet impact on the modeling scene over the years and is to a great part, among others, responsible for the development of the healthy and growing details aftermarket as well as the "big boys" move toward more detail and accuracy in the models they produce. I think you will enjoy getting to know William and Cottage Industry Models and learning more about how one modeling business was begun and how it still operates. The text and some photos are on my blog: http://modelbuilder.blogspot.com Regards,
