    Hello,
    My name is Ken, and I'm a Veteran of the U.S. Army, and I was a part of the Desert Shield/Storm campaign nearly 30 years ago. But my story doesn't start, there. The first time I was introduced into model rocketry was when my father bought me an Estes Star Trek Starter Kit in 1976. I was 10 years old. I built the kit all by myself, and I was very proud of that rocket that I completed. It was from that point on, that I was literally hooked in model rocketry. I still have a lot of the Estes catalogs from my youth, including the very first one that I got with my first rocket kit. Today, I'm still into model rocketry. But that's not all. I also love to build scale plastic model kits. These include sci-fi fantasy kits, as well as scale WWII planes, classic cars and trucks. I'm also a mechanical engineer, and I have designed, built and flown some very interesting aircraft as part of my hobbies. Regarding rocketry, I have built hundreds of rockets, half of which have been scratch-builds. I am a total fan of Battlestar Galactica and Star Trek, btw. The Colonial Viper is one of my favorites, of which I have built several versions and sizes. My largest one is nearly 4 feet long, and she takes 3 'E' rocket motors. Mostly balsa, it is a parachute recovery model, and a very interesting design if I may say so myself. If you have any questions about me or my models, feel free to ask anytime. Thanks for adding me to the group!!
