Ok, I'm an ol fart. Near 50 and been doing this (modeling) for a long time. Been building since I was about 7 or 8 and been collecting since I was 20 something. Currently sitting at somewheres around 500 or so kits. I don't do contests, I don't have the patience for all of that little stuff, so I just build for myself. I can appreciate those that can, but it's not my thing. I am currently trying to add to my collection as many of the kits that I built in my younger days.
I'm happy to help where I can and will answer any questions.
