    Over the years I have had a lot of people ask me to do a video of my entire model collection and put it on my you tube channel.

    That's well over 150 total models and here it is:

    Many models from multiple nations. Over 150.

    I forgot my 1/144 scale Space Shuttle and Launch Platform, so here's a separate video of that:.

    Also, my Stash of eight models:

    1/144 Saturn V, and Gemini Launch and Launch facilities (2)
    1/160 LCI (1)
    1/350 Ships (3)
    1/72 Aircraft (2)

    I actually started building when I was about 10 years old in the mid 1960s, but none of those are left now.

    Then in the late 1980s, when I was a Director for all of the support services for Structural Dynamics Research Corporation, working with several DOD companies, I began again. I built probably 30-40 models over a five year period. My AC-130H, 1/72 model is from that time period, my 1/192 USS Constitution is from that period, my Mig-31 is from that period

    By 1997 we had moved to Idaho, and then in 2010 I contracted a very serious bone cancer. My wife convinced me to start building then...but I was working for the US Government, and would continue to do so until 2016 when they diagnosed my cancer as terminal and called for 2-4 months to live.

    For whatever reason the good Lord decided I had longer. My principle neurosurgeon from MD Anderson in Houston says it is a miracle from God. I believe the same. When He is ready, He will bring me home. Until then, He has things for me to do.

    If anyone is so interested, friends set up a donation site for my family.

    I had to retire early and my wife could use the help after I am gone.



    Anything helps, especially your faith and prayers.

    I built 1/700 ships because I wanted to the historic nature of the introduction of fixed wing carriers to the Japanese Navy (JMSDF) and to the Korean Navy for the first time.

    This is in answer to the PLAN carrier building.

    I have videos of both groups on my youtube channel in 1/700 scale:

    Yes Viktor, Jeff is alright, he's the strongest guy on SDF, and no doubt always has been... he trusts his Lord Jesus everyday, in spite of his very, very difficult physical situation.. Jeff has been fighting cancer the whole time I have been on SDF... his Drs. had given him months to live, many years ago, and Jeff gives our very Loving and Gracious God all the credit, no doubt in my mind that our Lord continues to strengthen and comfort our Brother Jeff..

    Jeff"s Drs. at MD ANDERSON reconstructed his tail bone with titanium girders, his X-ray which he has posted here on the forum looks like a young man's erector set. Jeff and his lovely wife have 5 children, and I believe Bro Jeff has 15 grandchildren, so Jeff has a lot to live for, and has fought like the Man that he is...

    So Victor and others, please keep lifting up our Brother Jeff and his family in your prayers, it means everything to Jeff, and I can say in no uncertain terms that Brother Jeff loves and admires the men of SDF, he continues to join us as often as he can.

    thanks Jeff for sharing all your neat models with us, no doubt this remains therapeutic and helps keep your mind and motor skills sharp, beyond that these models give us a picture of what all this equipment looks like assembled together as it would be used.

    and to the Gentlemen of SDF, continue to lift our comrade up in your thoughts and prayers, and thank you in advance, your encouragement and concern for Jeff and others who were going through some tough times, is an inspiration to us all to be stronger and kinder in the process.
