Mike Pine had a twenty year career in the Navy, serving in Panama, the Middle East, the US Naval Academy sailing center and many other exotic locations. Typical of old time Navy men he has always been a skilled model maker. His hobbies include sailing, kayaking and doing fancy rope and rigging work.
If you get a model that smells faintly of tarred marlin you can bet Mike was the last one to have his hands on it! Mike has been at Trident Studio since July of 1999 when he quit chasing test torpedoes around the Atlantic.
