About Gary401
Currently on disability because of renal failure caused by high blood pressure. I used to be a heavy equipment operator constructing roads and buildings. Married 24 years. Two boys 19 & 17. Two small dogs and two fat cats. Been modeling since I was about 10, off and on over the years. But always researching WWII vehicles, equipment and battles, US and German with a dabble of British. Spent 3 years in the Army Infantry back in the mid 80's with the 1st ID 1BN 16 REG Boblingen Germany (Stuttgart). Have been back to Europe several times since 2007 - Germany,The Netherlands, France, and Switzerland. Picked up modeling again in late November 2012 to occupy my time. Spent $600 bux at three different online stores, then just last month digging through a closet found a couple old boxes loaded with some old kits, broken models, dried paints and glues. But there's still a box missing. (I know I had some Sherman's and other German tanks.) Add more later, time to hit the work bench.
