Favorite HM Models : I don't really have a favorite becuase I like all of them equally.

Reasons for Collecting : I've been amazed by aviation from the very get go of life. When I was very little my dad made a plastic model B-17, P-51, BF-109, Fokker Triplane and Sopwith camel and hung them from the ceiling in my bedroom along with my airplane wall paper. The first movie I remember watching is Top Gun and our family vacations growing up always included an Air Museum and an Air Show. I started making plastic models as a young boy(wasn't very good at it) Then I discovered girls and models went by the wayside. I Continued my love of aviation by joining the Navy and becoming a Navy Helicopter Rescue Swimmer. I just recently started collecting diecast models and have grown addicted to it.
