About DRay1656

I am a recently retired over the road trucker after 31 years and have been modeling off and on since my Dad bought me my first kit when I was 12. I will never forget that kit, it was a 1940 Ford. It has always been my favorite kit and I have several in display cases on my wall now. About 20 years ago I got heavy into the truck kits and have about 19 built on display but the last several years I have gotten into the old 30s and 40s fat fendered classics. I really love the old classic cars. I live in Gastonia, NC and have been married for 37 years and have no children but I do have a 12 year old nephew that I am passing the hobby down to. He is building his first kit now and I am helping him as much as he needs until he eventually is able to continue on his own. If those of us who are older don't pass the hobby down to the younger generation, I'm afraid that video games may someday take the place of our great hobby! So as for me, I will continue to build as long as I possibly can!
