I've been goofin' with R/C cars for about 34 years now... And static plastic kits well before that. I used to do illustrations-artwork for R/C Car Action magazine in the early 1990's. I'm into cars and motorbikes, and for employment I've been an industrial designer of many different types of vehicles over the years. I was a snowmobile and ATV designer then worked in Detroit as a car designer at ASC and GM. After those experiences I worked at Harley-Davidson and became a much better designer and motorbike rider. I now work at Mercury Marine making things go fast on water, which is a new adventure compared to my past design projects. Model car and R/C hobbies have always helped me put my day job into perspective and provide a trip back to being a teenage kid in the 1980's.
The R/C hobby has given me freedom to build what I like for many years at my own pace. TamiyaClub has great people involved that love this hobby (addiction), trust me!
