Howdy from Virginia

As they say, when one door closes (retirement), another opens. This means for me, that I've been able to get back with the modeling hobby.  So, I have three scale models in the batting line-up, a 1/48 scale F-102, and F-106 (I served with the 48 FIS from 1974 to 1980).. I have a love/hate relationship with the "6".  I also discovered I have a well preserved Monogram kit of Dale Earnhardt's Areo Coupe Monte SS.  Lastly, on the bench there is a Balsa USA Smoothie XL RC model with one wing completed, and the other one should be done this coming week.  Grand to be a part of this forum, I promise to be good and stay out of trouble.Wink

Welcome Dave. Lots of good people, good advice and fun here.

I long to live in a world where chickens can cross the road without having their motives questioned
