About Karybdis
I'm a third generation modeler who builds a little of everything (mostly Japanese)- all while being a 45 year old hermit who lives a happy, simple life, with my fiancée (author Jaclyn Dolamore) and three cats. My father was an MM3 aboard the USS Saratoga (CVA-60), my grandfather was in one of the main gun crews on the USS Chicago (CA-29), my great-grandfather was in the Rough Riders, and my great-great grandfather was in Mosby's Rangers (CSA). After my father, it all went downhill with me. ;-) Check out my website to see my animated movies and models!
