Hi, folks. I am remiss in that I should have posted here before posting anything else. I beg pardon. My name is Larry Schmidt. I live in Columbia, Missouri. I am a Retired U.S. Army Field Artillery officer. I am married to Doris Ann and have two children. My son, Steve and his wife Amy have three sons, Jonathan, Matthew, and Daniel, with another baby on the way. I have a daughter named Maria. I am 65 years old. I started out as a Ford man, but were are on Hondas #6 & 7. My first model was built in 1954. It was an Aurora Panther. I seriously started building models as a hobby in 1962. I build primarily 1/72 airplanes. I have built a little of everything over the years. I have over 1300 models displayed in my home, in a dedicated model room. I have 50 to 60 kits in the stash and nothing on the Shelf of Doom. I dabbled in 1/25th cars in the early '60s and a few 1/32 cars in the late '80s. I am a dinosaur in that I only brush-paint my models. I do not own an airbrush. I read science fiction, mysteries, and history. I shoot, hand-load, and fish. My wife and I are active parishioners in our church. That's enough, as I do not wish to bore anyone to death. Adios, Larry Schmidt.
