I built my first model airplane with my father in 1948. It started my lifelong love affair with flying model airplanes. Over the years I have gained a fondness for some designs that are seldom modeled in the United States and that led to my designing my own models.

When offered a chance to design some models for a known kit manufacturer I could not pass it up and while they did not want to produce some of the designs that I suggested, the kits that I designed are currently in production. Still, I thought that the designs that I originally suggested to the manufacturer were worthy of production, and they had no objection to my producing these designs myself.

My goal is to produce an expanding line of kits representing interesting scale subjects. They will be classic stick and tissue models, laser cut, and designed for the enjoyment of intermediate and advanced modelers. I hope you enjoy them.

Keep ‘Em Flying!
