My Hobbies and Interests:
* Building/Painting Models
* Collecting certain types of Non-Sports Cards
* Reading/Collecting certain Comics
I mainly like to assemble and paint 1/6 scale Vinyl kits of sci-fi and comic book characters. I find kits made from Vinyl the easiest to work with, and not as expensive to buy, as compared to resin ones, though I have built some resin ones.
To view photos of almost all of the models that I have built, click the links for Figure Models.
Back in the 60's, as a kid, I collected some of the trading cards from back then, like the Batman painted sets, Outer Limits, Green Hornet, James Bond, Rat Patrol, and Marvel sets. Maybe some day I will scan all of it and put it up on this site Also, during the mid 1990's through early 2000's, I was collecting some of the "recent" Sci-Fi and comics related sets. I really haven't done much with my collection since then. I do have a want / trade list.

For Non-Sports cards, what I have really concentrated on since 2002, are Sketchagraphs and Sketch cards, which are pieces of hand-drawn artwork inserted into the packs ... not reproductions, as with most trading cards.
To view my sketchagraph / sketch card collection, click the links for Sketch Cards.
I also have many Baseball and Football cards from my childhood, mainly the years 1964 - 1969, including Mickey Mantle's, Mike Ditka's, etc. I decided to catalog some of the ones for "key player".

I mainly collected comics as a kid back in the Silver Age (I am "dating" myself), and I have an extensive collection of such. Back in the mid to late 1990's, as my nephews "came of age", they got me back into comics. Currently, I am only collecting the "continuing" series of Astro City comics.
