For Modelers Only

Like most plastic modelers, I'm a big fan of Shep Paine. His color diorama brochures in Monogram kits were a highlight of the 70s and his books a never-ending source of inspiration. Today he's profiled in the Chicago Sun-Times:

As a kid, Paine collected tiny 20mm tanks and dabbled with model railroading, and he built model tanks during his spare time while serving as an Army sergeant in Germany. "I had a small collection of the vehicles that were actually in our company, and I discovered that if I put these things out on display in my room, inspecting officers would come over and look at them and never notice the dust bunnies under the bed," he said, laughing.

If you're a Shep fan, check it out!
