Response to I the spirit of Serge's post below...WHO has inspired you in your model building?

would have been '78? '79? To the best of my memory, the builder was a younger modeler, and had done an extensive amount of superdetailing, all from scratch: which wasn't even really a thing yet, that I knew of, at least. It was on the cover of the first IPMS Journal I recieved when I joined as a junior member.

It was the first time I saw that modeling could be more than buying a kit at Woolworths and slapping it together. And it was done by some kid who was closer to my age than my parents.

So, after my dad and Shep Paine, I count the modeler of that F-15 as a great influence. Anybody remember that model, or the guy who built it?
