Returning after 30 years away from IPMS


Recommended Posts

Greetings fellow scale modelers.  It has been far too long since being a member, good to be back.  I have been scale modeling for over 40 years.  I prefer to model in 1/25 & 1/24 scale, although do enjoy 1/35 vehicles from time to time.  I mostly build class 8 trucks, off highway mining & logging equipment, super haul trucks, some trailers, heavy machinery and so on.   I work mostly in ABS, brass, resin and styrene, but have used paper, wood, elastomers, aluminum and certain alloys as the work defined.  I have done commission work in the past, but have only been building for myself since 2008.  

Occasionally I build figures in 1/12 & 1/16, aircraft (civilian) in 1/72, WW2 military aircraft in 1/48, 1/32 & 1/24.  Single largest scale model to date, 1/8 Trojan front end loader & 1/3 Lagun Vertical Mill.

I am a journeyman industrial model maker with over 35 years in the trade, and am currently teaching the craft at a local college.  Nothing has been as rewarding as teaching this craft to others who show interest in continuing applying the knowledge.   

Cheers

Rick
