I've been hooked since I got my first snap together in 1976. I always looked forward to various holidays because I would always get a new kit. The funny thing was I never knew what it would be and it would always make it a pleasant surprise. My parents would buy any subject matter.
I remember my teens when we use to go to friends houses. We would have building marathons. Completing one to two kits a day "painted." Quality was questionable.
I joined the army and was stationed in Germany. I still managed to find kits and build.
Got married and started having kids. I would dabble in kits and build when I wasn't watching kids.
I seem to be collecting kits more than building at this time. I've been trying to turn it around. The kids are getting older and giving more time again.
I've been enjoying looking everyone's builds and hope to get time to get back to building my own.
