About Paul Seabrook (HastyP)

I started modeling in 2001 but in the last 3 yrs I moved to a new house and have built nothing. Everything is packed away until I finish my modeling area. I hope by summer it will be done. I am an avid military historian. I watch and read almost anything military from all time eras I can.
