Dennis Koleber has been building model cars professionally for over 31 years. I ran in to Dennis during Car Week while walking the paddock at Laguna Seca. He was carrying a very detailed model of a Ferrari F1 that I couldn’t stop admiring. He built his first model at the age of 6 and started winning contests with his builds at the age of 11. His careers over the years have ranged from teaching ballroom dancing, sales and training, time at the Coleman company, and 10 years in the Air Force as a cryptographer, but his passion is in model building. Today, Dennis is 70 years old, a 48 time national Champion in building model cars, and still builds highly detailed models for his clients around the world.
