In Memoriam

Larry Huff

 

My friend Larry Huff

Larry Huff was born July 11, 1946 in Houston County Georgia. He was raised by his Baptist Minister father and loving mother. He also spent a lot of time working on his grandparent’s farm in rural Houston County. A graduate of Perry High School Larry continued his education and became an “IT” specialist. Larry worked for several companies over his lifetime but he retired from Brown and Williamson Tobacco Company.

Larry became interested in the model building hobby late in life. While on an extended stay in the hospital his daughter brought him a couple of model kits to build to give him something to do during the long recovery. Through these model builds he discovered that he preferred building model cars and at first NASCAR models. From this he moved into all sorts of automotive subjects with a special interest in Hot Rods – 1932 Fords.

Larry found IPMS/USA General Robert L. Scott Chapter by accident. He heard about an airbrush demonstration at the Hobby Town USA store in Macon. After the demonstration he began talking with Chuck Davenport, who was the demonstrator, and Chuck invited him to come to a meeting. Larry had such a great experience at that meeting he joined the club that night. This made him the second automotive modeler to join our chapter.

Trying to make sure his painting skills were the best he could achieve he began reading all the books on automotive painting he could find. For those of us who knew Larry, all his research paid off. He also taught several of us how to achieve better paint jobs for our models. Larry was always ready to help other modelers and learn from them too.

Larry won several awards for his modeling at all levels – local, regional and National. One of his most coveted awards was a Top 15 finish at the largest NNL show in the South with his black 1932 Ford Roadster. He was also awarded “Best Paint” two years in a row from the Phantom Phlashers of Alabama.

His models have been featured in several hobby magazines and he had articles on how to paint model cars published in “Scale Auto Enthusiast” and the “IPMS/USA Journal.”

I miss my dear friend every day but the lessons Larry taught me on painting will live on.
