Although I have only been flying RC airplanes since 2010, I have been building models kits (and other things) most of my life. A product of the Space Race era, I grew up fascinated by anything to do with airplanes, rockets, and technology in general. When I was younger, I satisfied my obsession by building Guillows free flight kits, Estees rockets, and a variety of static display plastic kits.
As I got older, my attention turned to cars (Mustangs in particular), career, and family, and quite naturally I lost my interest in model building. And even though I started my career as an aerospace engineer, I transitioned into IT in the mid 90′s and had pretty much gotten away from aviation all-together.
In late 2009, however, I began to “re-examine my priorities” (my kids called it a mid-life crisis) and decided to re-kindle my interest in aviation and get back into model airplanes. Also being interested in military history, WW II era warbirds are a particular obsession of mine.
I recently decided to keep a journal of my RC adventures and created a blog site at http://alsrcsite.com.
I hope to learn much from the community here at RC Groups!
By day I'm an IT professional, but my real interests are building and flying model airplanes, woodworking, and driving with the top down!
