Newbie from Houston! :-)
Posted by Freddy East Side on Tuesday, March 31, 2020 10:21 AM

Hello everyone! I'm so happy to have found this wonderful place! I'm planning on retiring in approximately 5 months so I thought of getting back into model building.  I remember back in the 70's when I first started building models, there was a collection of movie monsters that glowed in the dark.  It didn't take much skill due to the fact that there were only 4-5 pieces total. LOL! I remember putting together Frankenstein's monster, The Mummy, Phantom of the Opera and Dracula. Great memories! I recently picked up a 1/350 scale model of the Starship Yamato! Didn't realize it was so complicated with the electronics and all. If any of you live in or near the Houston Texas area and know someone who can give me a hand with this, I would be eternally grateful! Big Smile Well, looking forward to slowly getting back into this awesome hobby. Take care all!
