Hi my name is Johnny, I am from Puerto Rico and I started scale modeling at very young age, my dad did models, my two other brothers did models too, they mostly builded cars. I am mostly interested in 1/35 WWII armor, figures and vehicles, 1/48 WWII Airplanes, WWII ships on some occasion, I have build cars and some science fiction but not my strong, I like to build a model straight out of the box, I do a small amount of research to get the model as accurate as possible, rarely I would buy any extra parts to enhance my model, I do a lot of weathering mostly to cover for my mistakes and to give the model a more realistic look, I think weathering will give a lot of character to a model and help tell the story behind the creation.
I am a Neurophysiologist and the Director of the Neurophysiology Department - IOM services of GNI in Macon, so for me, free time is a luxury, I use scale modeling to take my mind out of work.
I got four kid, one girl in college, one 13 y/o Girl who do models with me and two three year old twins boy and girl
By mentioning that I do scale modeling in my CV, It helped me land a fellow position in a very prestige and Ivy league school of medicine in New Hampshire.
Glad to be part of the club
