This Autobiography is in prelude to my posting of my FIRST Blog Build.
I started in the Model Hobby in 1965 at the age of 8 when My Father brought home a Guillows kit and a Cox Tether car. I did not make the connection for several weeks until we went to the AMA Southwest Model Airplane meet at Hobby Park in Dallas Texas. After a day of watching in awe I put it together what my Father had done.
Over the next 20+ years my Father and I competed in Control line Competitions all over the South. My Father and I both worker in the Hobby Business at THE HOBBY COUNTER in Dallas that was Owned by JOHN E. (JOHNNY) CLEMENS AMA 18.
Dad eventually was a business partner with John.
We flew along side of some of the Greatest the Hobby has ever known.
Bob Gieseke, Al Rabe (not sure of the spelling). Jim Clem, and many others.
