About mmthrax

I have always liked working with my hands.  Built a few models when I was a kid.  Got my first car at 12, a 74 Mercury Capri for $125, and I was all about auto restoration.  I have been working in auto parts for 30 years, minus a couple of years off to be a bench jeweler and to run heavy equipment digging swimming pools.  After some trauma I had to liquidate everything I owned and have been riding and restoring bicycles for a few years.  I have grown tired of working on bicycles and now just want to ride them.  I have a penchant for working on things and restoring or refurbing them, be it a classic car, bike, file cabinet, toaster, or vintage furniture.  I love it all.

I am confident that I can build a good model.  I am a great "assembler".  What I would like to accomplish through modeling as an adult is the ability to "think outside the box".  

I want to test my creativity through the medium of model cars and push my limits.  I want to become proficient with painting, putty, casting, and the like.  

I am happy to be on the forum and look forward to learning from and interacting with fellow members.
