Back to the addiction
Posted by vtwinpower on Wednesday, November 07, 2018 10:09 PM

Hello to all,

Looking forward to learning and relearning skills I have long not used. I used to build WW2 Dioramas when I was in my teens along with airplanes.  Life got busy, wife, kids, job (s) etc... Same stuff a lot of you went thru. Now I am ready to start some quiet me time, locked away in my office.

I love motorcycles, so I bid on some models and got 4 for around $100. One is a Barry Sheene Suzuki MATCHBOX one from 1979 before they sold out to a Japanese co.!!

Really excited and can't wait to start (waiting on all the supplies).

Thanks for your time

Laurent

Welcome!  If you like motorcycles take a look at the Tamiya kits - they are really well engineered and a joy to build.

Thanks,

John

A fly-by to celebrate your return to the hobby: https://youtu.be/C6DWBkF7NUI

BTW: there is no cure for the addiction...

OK. On the bench:

Way too much to build in one lifetime...
