Collectors' Profile
United States
Occupation: USAF Pilot

Total No. of Collections: Presently I have 8 Hobby Master aircraft in my collection. I have 3 on pre-order. My total collection numbers 150+. I started out collecting aircraft from other companies and they make up the bulk of my collection. A friend told me that I was missing out by not collecting aircraft by Hobby Master. Out of curiosity I purchased my first Hobby Master aircraft, Spitfire DW-N. Since then there has been no turning back. I'm late to the HM game but will not miss out on any other releases since Hobby Master has taken the #1 spot in my collection.

Favorite HM Models :Definitely a tie between George Preddy's P-51D, Cripes A Mighty and Robert Stanford Tuck's Spitfire Mk.I, GR-P.

Reasons for Collecting : I was brought up as an Air Force Brat. My father was a career pilot. I always interested in anything about military aviation and built airplane models as a child. That ended with the discovery of girls. I started collecting after seeing my first quality diecast Spitfire when I turned 40. I've been out of control since then.

Most Expected Future Models: Any 8th Air Force P-51D that Hobby Master produces. There are so many liveries that have never been produced. Hopefully Hobby Master will produce aircraft liveries that the other companies have never touched.
