About Brak61

I'm 58, divorced and the father of one grown son. I work as a machinist for Wabtec (Westinghouse Air Brake Technologies). I live in Knoxville Tennessee and I am in a local club here in town. I bulit my first model about age 8 and have built on and off since then. I got seriously back into it in 2014 after my son graduated UT and moved to CT for a job.

I build mainly build motorsports models, NASCAR, drags, Indy, F1, short trackers, but I can and have done almost everything that can be done.

If I had to grade my myself as a modeler I'd give myself a B-, I'm proud of most of my builds but I see many areas that need vast improvement. Since I've joined clubs and started going to shows I've seen some work that just blows my mind and I aspire to attain similar skills.

I have many other interests also so I can't devote all my time to models. A new house bought in 2016 gets a lot of my time, this will be my retirement home so I want it done just right for my needs. The model studio was among the 1st projects done.
