About Epi
I am 47 years of age. I have been modeling since I was around 8 years old. As you can see from my signature, I am retired from the US Army and Texas Army National Guard. I served 6 years in active duty from 1989 to 1995 and in 1998 I joined the Texas Army National Guard and been serving up until this past April 2012, when I retired. I don't claim to be an expert modeler, but I have won numerous awards at one of our local models shows. I have done commission work for several people. My main subject area is modern armor, figures and sci-fi, but I do dabble in aircraft when it tickles my fancy. Last thing I want to say is, that this is the best sight to be at and these guys here are the greatest.
