About the Author

About Jim Starkweather (staff_Jim)

I started building models in 1971 when I was 6. My first model was a 1/32 P-40 Warhawk. Revell I believe. From there I moved onto the standard cars, Apollo spacecraft, and other kid orientated kits. I don't know what got me started on Armor. I must have seen a Monogram tank kit one day and said "Mom...


Fantastic photos! Amazing figures and dios! Very good work shown! Thanks for sharing Jim! Cheers and happy modelling! Prato

nice...very nice indeed...but the Elvis shadowbox is in poor taste and i'm very surprised and dissapointed that you, Jim, saw fit to even post photos of it. Very poor taste. Should never have even been considered as an entrant in the show. If it had been an American Soldier blown apart by an IED in graphic detail I don't think you would have posted it. cheers, Kevin

Kevin, I think it was a perfect dio when I saw it,, when not " guarding " the armorama table,,,hmmm,,,talk about that later. :-) But Kevin, remember, our hobby deals WITH history, not SELECTIVE HISTORY. We all make dio's of the SS, GESTAPO, should we protest building/making/supporting any company/model/builder that uses the geman army in a dio/product ?? Remember what certain select individuals did, do you have any ww2 german models in your attic ?? The dio of ELVIS was one really to marvel at if you had seen it up close. Many people loved it. Lets not let this post get out of control first ok ???? Talk to you soon buddy.

Gday Jim There were some jolly good dios there! Some of the large ones must be year long + time consumers... The series of 'turret' vignettes were creative also. Both shadowboxes were great; you can almost sense the end is nigh for Nelson by the pensive figures... And the King on the Throne~ I love it! (Bless my soul, what's wrong with me...) Didn't think he had one of those toilet roll holders as well And as for the pics you got one helluva camera or what?! Exemplary shots Cheers Brad

Excellent photography Jim. To get images like you did of shadow boxes is a feat in itself. But what a canvass to work with!!! Some amazing work on display. As Bradley mentioned the turret vignettes of Young Won, were very impressive and a cool concept actuyally. Im not naming any more as the list is too long of spectacular work.

Hey Jim Sorry we had to "bump" the SCAHMS article from the home page.... but you've gotta admit THIS is one seriously cool feature :-) :-) Cheers Rudi

Wow! Simply amazing stuff!

wow. you do a great job.

I grabbed a screen shot of the Japanese pilot figure as soon as I saw it. Then I tried to research the figure, kit, or source but no luck. Is there any info on this figure? Who made it, and how much is scratch-built, or modified? What scale is it? Etc., etc.? Anything would be helpful. This is the very best I've seen for a Japanese pilot. The other large size kits seem to make the pilot look somewhat goofy, or "off".
