back after 15 years
Posted by tpjames on Sunday, January 10, 2021 4:02 AM

Hello all, after a dud year ( 2020) I have decided to return to the hobby  I have enjoyed for pretty much my entire life. I'm 72.  I was very involved years back, perhaps even called semi pro, I was commissioned  to build many models, Muscle cars, Corvettes, Race Cars etc..even restorations. another love is Military vehicles, WW1 and WW2. I have a failry nice collection of kits from way back stored. Incredibly, most of my hobby tools and STUFF was stored and most is still intact. 


Years back before I stored a kit, such as a Military Model , I airbrushed all the sprew so today I have several kits already painted Olive Drab or German Grey.  

Anyway, glad to be back, peace and health to all

Building a kit from your stash is like cutting a head off a Hydra, two more take it's place.
