I was born on the planet Earth in the State of Iowa in the year 04-07-1946. Ever since I can remember I have been fascinated with science fiction. When the Star Trek series and Star Wars movies came out I became more interested in it. I have been building models since a young boy, and one of my favorites were spacecraft of all kinds. I think I have built just about every one of the Star Trek and Star Wars kits that were available. When the Star Wars movie "The Empire Strikes Back" came out, a friend of mine who managed the theater where it was showing had me display some of my models there. It was a great honor. I began designing and building spacecraft from my own imagination. With my own designs I had the freedom to let my imagination run wild. The spacecraft on the models pages are ones that I have designed and built. My wish is that someday I'll be able to design and build them as a profession. All of the images on these pages were made by me using Paint Shop Pro. I hope you enjoy them and will contact me to let me know what you think of my site. Thanks, Art
