Hi ya Monteverdi ... and welcome to the FSM community forums.

Sounds like you have gotten back into the hobby in a big way ... great production numbers !

I know what you mean about certain smells bringing back very fond memories of childhood ... didn't know others had this happen to them too.

I also like the way you think ... ":as long as I have a model to build I;ll never die." Amen !

Again, welcome and I hope to see you and your years of experience here in the FSM forums many many times in the future. The more we read and comment the more we can learn from each other.

If that is true, i'll live forever. Like you, I have been building models forever, well at least over fifty years or so. Welcome and have fun in your building as well as this site.
