Hello all from Western NC
Posted by MountainManErik on Sunday, March 11, 2018 8:17 AM

Hello all, Just started back into scale models about a year ago after a 20 year absence.  Built with friends back in the military and loved it.

I usually build motorcycles but also trying my hand in street cars, scifi vehicles, weathering, and race cars.  I really enjoy building with a twist.  I have tried building something similar to the Tamiya parts panels which should a exploded view of bikes and cars.  Also I have tried out a cutaway view with a F1 car.


Looking forward to talking with you all!

Thanks Tojo72.  We moved up here about 3 years ago from Florida and love it.  Lots of hiking, camping, kayaking, and bike riding here.

Howdy ! 

You have some nice stuff in your gallery. Having a range of subject's will help keep you from getting bored with the hobby. Nice job on the cutaway car ! ( but I think I liked the "Coffin" best !!!)

Welcome to FSM.

 Dont worry about the thumbprint, paint it Rust , and call it "Battle Damage".
