Hello, from upstate NY

Post by DonS » Wed Dec 20, 2017 12:21 am

My name is Don and I'm a CG modeler/garage kit producer.

I worked briefly at Foundation Imaging on "Max Steel" and for Gerry Anderson on "New Captain Scarlet". I also worked on the KC-135 refueling boom operator training system for the U.S. Air Force.

There aren't many jobs for a CG modeler where I reside, so I decided to translate my skill into creating CAD masters to make model kits. I bought the masters for the old SMT 1/48 scale Millennium Falcon kit to teach myself the black arts of molding and casting. Following this, I created my first kit from a CAD model, a conversion to change the Polar Lights/Round2 1/350 scale Enterprise Refit into the Reliant. Now, I'm working up my first complete kit, a 1/1000 Enterprise 1701-D.

That about sums it up!
