About Richard Baker

Growing up, I always had a passion for painting, constructing and assembling miniatures of all shapes and sizes. I was excited when I discovered a new hobby back in early 2011 when I found an old school Star Wars X-Wing kit on eBay. I spent time putting this kit together after work or during lunch breaks and soon realized that this hobby had the potential to be my adult career.
