Modified Colony class model
The amazing fact is that I still have a model of the modified Colony class light cruiser that has a date on the bottom of June 4, 1968. I took some photographs of the model, which has been discolored by age (39 years old).
I spent 11 years on active duty in the navy. Half was as an enlisted man and half as an officer. My Dad had interested me in the navy and ships, when I was young. I found that I was attracted to doing research, regardless of topic, although much of that research has been in the fields of naval and military history. My Dad was also an artist, and got me drawing and painting since I was three. Much of my work consists of portraits of military and naval historical figures, as well as ships and tanks.
