My Own Little World
I've been building models since I was 5 years old. I started out with small car kits then moved to stock cars dragsters and funny cars. I next moved to tall ships which was one of my favorite model genres because of all of the rigging. My dad gave me his uncompleted model of the USS Constitution and let me have a go at it. From that point on I loved the larger scale models. I met My Best Friend Mike when I was about 10 or 11 years old and we got into cardboard model building. We founded the NemVia Productions co. when we were 12 by combining 3 letters each of our last names. Nem from Nehmzow and Via from Pavia. It was either that or PavZow. Anyway, we did numerous projects together mainly recording our own radio shows on cassette or reel to reel tape. We even had a few tries on some sad movies with my dads Super8mm camera. Mike moved out to Oregon when we were 13 but we kept in touch with our projects via US Postal. The internet came and I started this site in 2003. I've since graduated on to larger projects mainly scratch building. I've always enjoyed Star Trek TOS as well as the Feature films and of course all of the standard Movie greats Star Wars, Indiana Jones, Close Encounters, 2001: A Space Odyssey movies mainly from the 70's and 80's era are my favorite especially the scifi movies that involved much model building work!
