I STARTED BUILDING SCALE AIRCRAFT MODELS AS A KID. MY CHILDHOOD FRIEND'S FATHER HAD A FANTASTIC EUROPEAN THEME 4X8 "N" SCALE LAYOUT WHICH CAUGHT MY IMAGINATION. AFTER SERVING IN THE MILITARY I JOINED THE CANADIAN PACIFIC RAILWAY WHERE I OPERATED TRAINS IN ONTARIO  AND WESTERN CANADA. MY WORK EXPERIENCE ELEVATED MY QUEST FOR ACCURATE SCALE TRAIN MODELS. I HAVE BEEN BUILDING SCALE MODEL TRAINS FOR 15 YEARS, HAVING BUILT TRAINS FOR CLIENTS SUCH AS HUSKY ENERGY AND CADBURY CHOCOLATE. I PREFER THE WRONG SIDE OF THE TRACK STUFF, URBAN DECAY AND GENERALLY THE FEATURES ONE MIGHT FIND IN REAL-ESTATE THAT'S BACKING ONTO THE RAIL PROPERTY.

I'M BLESSED TO BE ASSOCIATED WITH SUCH A TALENTED GROUP OF MODELERS AND I HOPE I WILL INSPIRE MORE MODELERS TO BUILD REPLICAS OF REALISM.
