who is modelmaking.guru then?
Foxx has been making models for over thirty years, and after life took over for a couple of decades, returned to the addiction in 2011. He has now decided to make his works available to others so that those who do not feel they have the skill or ability to create their own can still have a beautiful, hand-crafted piece on display in their den, office or living room without paying museum prices.
Growing up on Tamiya Military Miniatures kits and a love of sci-fi, naturally his preferences lean toward those genres. He's never happier than when he is recreating a filming miniature from Star Wars or similar. And by "Star Wars" he means the three films that exist, not the abominations that came later (which, he will state adamantly, were never made and do not exist).
But the one thing he loves more than anything else is WEATHERING! You won't see a shiny, factory fresh kit on his workbench. He is a firm believer that a display model looks much more realistic and lived in if it has a story to tell through its scuffs, scrapes, scratches, dents and dings. Rust, mud, dirt, stains and general schmutz are vital to making a miniature "pop".
