About TacFireGuru
Like most, I started out in my young years; building Monogram armor and aircraft. Joining the Army at 17 in 1981 put a stop to my building for many years, I retired in 2001 and ran across Armorama....I've been re-hooked since. I'm a notoriously slow builder and seem to have more than one build going at the same time (guess I get bored easily?). I prefer subjects from WWII and that preference runs the gamut of "flavors;" German, Russian, US. I'm a particular fan of 1/35th Rail Road subjects, Berges, and oddities. It seems to be a good time for modeling; what with all the subjects and AM goodies. 'Tis a good thing.
