Jamie Hood (Polar Lights)


Jamie is a lifelong resident of North central Indiana he attended the Columbus College of Art & Design where he studied illustration and design. A lifelong comic book fan, his areas of interest spread throughout science fiction and fantasy.

He began his career in the RV industry before moving on to Round 2, LLC, where he has worked on the Forever Fun line of collectible holiday products and the Polar Lights, AMT & MPC brands, where he has a genuine interest in guiding the company’s line up of science fiction model kits.

According to Jamie, his favorite kit is the one he hasn’t started yet, but he enjoyed working on the Wolverine figure.

His greatest moment of modeling success was the praise he received for the 1701 ship produced in 2012, especially that from Paul Newitt.

  1. Jamie has the coolest job ever. And once again, thanks for the new 1:350 Enterprise. That truly is the impossible ‘rabbit out of a hat’. 🙂

    I have a question, How come they don’t make pick up models like Chev C-1500, or C-2500? A lot of the Big names use to, know they don’t, and I know a lot of builds looking for them. Thank You. Please let me know if you plan on building in the future.
