*Hello From Southern Indiana*
Posted by Olezippi on Saturday, November 27, 2021 7:32 AM

I built models as a kid and got back into modeling about 9 months ago. I build 1:25 scale. I like the old Hot Rods, Gassers, and trucks & cars from the 30's thru the 50's.

Hi there!!!! Welcome to the Forums! Glad to have you with us.

I started building models in 1946(6 years old) and never stopped. I have always built whatever strikes my fancy and my wallet says OK. So, you name it and I build it. Favorites are WWI & WWII planes, sailing ships and all kinds and sizes of cars.

You've come to the right place. If you have any questions/problems, just ask. Members here are very knowledgeable and ready to help. We were all there at one time or another.

Hello and welcome to the forum. I was originally an auto modeler but now I've allowed the other modelers to corrupt me into other model subjects. Most of my auto's are racers or muscle and exotic cars. 

Looking forward in seeing some of your work. 

Talk to you soon on one of many modeling journeys.

G'day old mate. Great interests, but they are cars......... Welcome anyway. I am not a car builder, but I have no doubt that I will learn something here.
