My name is Jon T, and I’ve been interested in history, in particular, WWII history since I was a kid. My love of armor started when I was 8 and saw the movie Sahara(On TV), reviewed on this site, the 1943 version, and fell in love with the M3 Lee. The love of the Sherman followed that. A Tamiya Lee and Testors M4A1 Sherman were the first model kits I built. I still dabble in plastic models.
I‘ve never served, but appreciate the guys who have, the site is really dedicated to them. I really am just an armor, airplane, and history geek. The focus of my love in these areas are the M4 Sherman, and the P-38 Lightning, and F4U Corsair fighters. I’ve spent a lot of time reading books on them and money acquiring books on them.
