Ship modeling, my favorite period is 1650-1850. Photography, fine art, and vintage cars, mine is a 1989 BMW E30 M3. I also love WW I aircraft, and might sneak around to build a "Brisfit" someday. I am also a book hound, primarily on ships and ship modeling. I am the past President and Secretary of the Nautical Society of Oregon Model Shipwrights, 2004 - 2015. Member of the Oregon Maritime Museum since 1990, and an NRG member since like... 1991 or so. Seems I don't have time to work on my own projects, being inundated with a constant flow of repairs and restorations of client's antique ship models since 1996.
