About Jim Starkweather (staff_Jim)

I started building models in 1971 when I was 6. My first model was a 1/32 P-40 Warhawk. Revell I believe. From there I moved onto the standard cars, Apollo spacecraft, and other kid orientated kits.

Who had four jerry cans on the left fender, two spare wheels on the right engine side and a short run of track links on the hull side below the first and second return rollers. enjoy Craig (8wheels-good)

Nerts. It is a $50.00 book. And it goes up from there if you want hardcover.
