Certainly Shep Paine and then...

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

the members of the Louisville Ky IPMS Military Modelers Club. I remember seeing Shep's diorama booklet on the B-17 at school in about the fifth or sixth grade. That showed me how to take kit building to the next level. Then in about the eighth grade I stumbled onto the IPMS club and discovered model builders who practiced what Shep was doing and I have always held an interest every since.
After moving to Nevada I quickly sought out the local IPMS club and still count some of its members as modelling influences some 30 years later despite 2 cross country moves.
There are too many people from all over the world here on Hyperscale to name, but they are all influential to me. There is one person who I shall name specifically and that is Randy Lutz. He gets special mention because when I first found Hyperscale on the internet I asked a question about a 1/48th Tamiya Dewoitine D520 and he responded almost immediately with not just the answer but also some encouragement. I always remember his generosity.
