Marine: Since the first model, a Chevrolet Corvette
in 1966, right up until the prototypes for the "Skies Over
Europe" Series finished earlier this month, I have maintained
one philosophy - do the best job that you can. From using the
best tools and paints, right down to the glues and epoxies that
hold everything together, I have always maintained the fact
that the best possible models are created from the best possible
materials. My 30+ year long passion for scale model building
is evident in every project that leaves my office. For all intents
and purposes, my 'signature' is on every one. Presentation and
the quality of your finished work is everything - it is a reflection
of who you are and your attitude about what you do. I feel that
if I can give my clients the best job, at a competitive price,
and in the most reasonable amount of time, I give them absolutely
no reason to go elsewhere for their scale modeling needs. Hopefully
you might feel that way as well.With
