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.

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 Dublin, New Hampshire with his wife, daughter, and three dogs.

Rowan has been modelling for about 40 years While happy building anything, his interests lie primarily in 1/48 scale aircraft - especially Golden Age and WW2 era . Almost 20 years ago he marketed his own range of resin accessories, Blueprint Models, but gave it up when he realised he was losing sight of why he begun modelling in the first place; for the fun of it. As well as editing Aeroscale, Rowan now acts as an informal advisor to a number of manufacturers including Dragon Models but, probably as a result of this background, he hasn't lost his weakness for short-run kits - relishing the challenge they represent, as well as the exciting subjects they offer.

Started modelling as a young boy with his Dad. Once he reached his teens, modelling took a back seat to going down the pub, and then starting a family. Got back into modelling and now models just about anything from figures, armour, Sci-Fi and aircraft depending on what mood he is in. Finding the Kitmaker Network has kept the interest well and truly alive.
