So many apologies for being away from DA so much!  Last year was just so insanely busy and I've been trying to get back to building models just for fun (crazy idea, I know).  I have sooooo much DA to catch up on!  Hopefully I can rectify that this year...  Thanks for all the faves and putting up with my DA-absence!

**I'm currently not taking on new commissions because I now only sell what I want to build myself**

I'm a hermit who leads a happy, simple life with my fiancée (professional YA novelist Jaclyn Dolamore) and three cats.

An old Gundam/ anime fogey who saw First Gundam on Betamax (lol) in 1980. Been building models for about 30 years, professionally for 10 of those 30.

I've produced a couple of animated shorts for anime conventions:

And two animated history shorts (History With Dade).

I've won Best of Show awards in some model shows and have been published in Finescale Modeler and Animerica (won three mecha design challenges). I've written some fairly long articles for Modelshipwrights.com.

But after a massive case of burn out/ pre-midlife crisis, I just chill building models and act as a history adviser/ plot sounding board for my girl's novels (Magic Under Glass, Between The Sea And Sky, etc.).

Thanks for reading this self-congratulatory diatribe and I hope you enjoy my stuff! Take care.

Thanks for watching! I'm about a third done with my latest build... I hope you like it!
I love your work on the battleships! Your water work is exceptional.

Awesome, I'm looking forward to it! IMO, you're one of the best Zoids customizers in the English language (the other is Aurora), so I'm certainly a fan.
Thanks for the kind words about my ships. They seem to be my "claim to fame" other than my Kshatriyas. lol

Thanks for the compliment; I have been feeling better about my stuff, but I still look in on the greats out there from Asia and Europe and think, "man, you've got a LONG way to go!"
