About FISTer13FStarted modelling around 5-6 y/o with the old Aurora movie monsters. While listening to dad's stories of his aviation past, I Knew that aviation would play a large part in my life, so as a kid, I learned to "fly" the backyard furniture(or anything else I could sit on or in). Built "any and all" of the old Monogram kits until I Joined the Army in the early 80's and was bitten by the rotary wing bug as a Huey crew chief. Discharged and building again, mostly WWII aviation, but also dabbling in armor as well.
Invested in flight training and became a commercial helo driver in the NYC area flying charters and tours until the opportunity to become a police officer came around. Now a Police SGT. Re-enlisted in the PAARNG as a 13F48L7 Joint Fires/Forward Observer. Assigned 1/109th Inf. Combined Arms Bn. 28 ID, FIST as the Battalion Targeting NCOIC, SFC, with one trip to the sandbox under my belt..
Still modelling WWII aviation and WWII/modern armor. Married with 2 dogs.
