About Us
AutoModeler, a new site in the KitMaker Network, is an interactive community site with over 72,818 registered users. This site was launched in June of 2008, but was originally the automotive section of ModelGeek.

The plan is for this new site to become as much an online hub for automotive enthusiasts as Armorama has become for other military scale modeling projects. We can't do that without your help and interaction though. So please take a moment to look around, signup if you haven't already created an account on the KitMaker Network. And if you have that login will work here just fine.

We are always interested in user contributions of photos, articles, reviews or anything you feel your fellow modelers might be interested in. In many ways this is YOUR site. It is not the work of one person or even a small handful. And that is the way we like it.

AutoModeler Staff

Jim Starkweather, PUBLISHER, MANAGING EDITORS
Jim is the founder and sole software developer for the KitMaker Network. He created Armorama back in 2001 as a hobby to learn more about how to build large community Web sites. As someone who had built models, Jim was hoping that creating a fun and interactive site covering scale modeling might even get him back into the hobby (and it has). He lives in Clovis, California with his wife and daughter.

I enjoy cars, through and through I am a car guy. From building scale models to working on my own cars.

My professional background is as a licensed Industrial Mechanic/Millwright and a licensed Sheetmetal Mechanic. Most of my working life has been involved in prototype development. Now working at the Royal Canadian Mint on equipment and product improvement in the Technical Services Department. My hobby background has been mainly Aircraft, Autos and Tanks/Soft skins with side steps into Ho/N Gauge Trains, Ship. I enjoy building limited run models and the challenges that always seems to come with them. I hope to do some scratch building soon of a Handle Page aircraft that I have scale drawings of. I am married (35 years) with two grown up children and one grandaughter. I live in a quite rural area south of Ottawa Ontario.
