About Kevlar06I 'm a retired U.S. Army Colonel, serving 30 years on active duty. I started building models in 1959, when my brother-in-law gave me a 1/32 Monogram Jeep and 37mm gun kit, which I still have. I graduated to Aurora, Renwal and ITC plastic kits in the early 60s. After a break in model building from 1970 to 1998, I came back to the hobby when my educator wife asked me to build aircraft from the Wright Flyer to the Space Shuttle to hang in her classroom. Retiring from the Army in 2006, I worked as a Vocational Intern and employment researcher for disabled workers, and built for commission on occasion, but I'm fully retired now. I was fortunate in my career to serve as an Armor/Cavalry Officer, Chemical Officer, and in assignments with the Navy and Air Force, hence my interest in Armor, Aircraft and Ships. I'm also a figure painter, and build classic cars and pre-1969 open wheel racers. I've recently been doing research and building spacecraft and missiles from the dawn of the Space and X-Plane era, and have amassed a pretty large collection of WWI and Golden Era aircraft in 1/32 scale. Now, if I could just figure out how to upload photos to photobucket and Kitmaker....
