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.

Well you live and learn, thanks Michael I do think that I should have known that though If I am going to build a one off I just like to build models in the insignia of the country that produced them; I have no idea why? That begs the question; are they going to release the A/C versions? Well masks are a possible for all the insignia included
