About Jim Starkweather (staff_Jim)
FROM: CALIFORNIA, UNITED STATES

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. I don't know what got me started on Armor. I must have seen a Monogram tank kit one day and said "Mom...

Jim, that's 437 photos and you're beating yourself up about taking a while to post them?! Thanks for the report, some excellent stuff here. Got to hand it to the guy who appears to be trying to model every Matilda that ever served!

Thanks for these, Jim. The standard, as one would expect, is exceptional. I wondered if you recorded class winners, so that we could see the judging decisions. It must have been difficult. Another short-list posting, perhaps, if available? On another note, and it may be because there are simply so many armour photos listed here, is that it appears that easily 80% of the subjects are 'shermans n' germans' - with a spattering of soviet and modern armour. Do you think this is due to saturation marketing, or are our preferences simply set in that modelling groove? Cheers for sharing.
