About CaptainA
I enjoy modeling. It doesn't really matter what. I am just as happy making a tank as I am making an exotic car. I love the challenge of getting that top wing to stay straight on a WWI airplane, and I am determined to get the eyes correct on a 1/35 figure. Since I am now retired I am able to spend time doing things I never had time for in the past. I spend time studying my family tree, golfing and modeling. Life is good.
