Middle-aged dude from California. I built a lot of kits as a kid with much enjoyment, but little skill or patience. When my son needed to build some models for school several years ago my interest was reawakened and I have been building actively since. Age has brought the patience and forethought to get the final product I longed for as a kid. As my free time is still somewhat limited to nights after everyone has gone to bed, my volume is modest and I take my time to get the final build to look the way I want. I can usually get through 10-12 kits per year of varying quality. I tend towards muscle cars and hotrods, but have a few others as well. There are not many auto subjects I don't like. Occasionally I branch out to space ships (real and fictional) for something different. Enjoy reading the posts here and on other boards and enjoy trying out any new trick I find.
