RIP SHEP

I met Shepard Paine when my father opened "The Olde Soldier" shop in St. Catharines, Ontario.
I was cleaning windows/display cases, and oggling the tamiya,verlinden, squadron, ....etc, at 11
Shep walks in the door after I look at his halftrack with leaping...yep 'leaping' figures" in a mag. .....
He was there to show my Dad his new line of Casted figures,...Valiant Miniatures
I racked his brain for a good 35-40 mins. then, coffee was over and, I had to get back to cleaning,....
He will be remembered and missed,.....and copied, for ever.
Cheers to Shep

I bought "How to Build Dioramas" 6 years ago when I first got into this hobby. I still look at it every time I build anything. He was such an amazing artist.
