About Modelcarsz

Got my first model at age 7, in 1967. I've been hooked on them ever since. Had to learn to build them all on my own, and it took me til 1970 to put one all together right! Never have lost track of models, but have experienced the same "life bumps" that every one of us has. A break from it here and there, but always came back to building. I built very heavily in the 1970s and '80s, and slowed to a crawl in the mid-late '90s. After a divorce in 1999, I didn't build much until I got sick with a lung disease in 2007. That put me out of work, and out of commission for a little while. I kept buying kits through the years, however. Since the fall of 2007, I have been back in full swing and wanting to build very badly again. I do okay at building again, as long as I use my respirator for painting! I build mostly street stocks, street hot rods, and pickups. I really enjoy restoring old built-ups (glue bombs). I get as much satisfaction out of that, as I do building a new kit. I will build most anything if I take a notion, but I stick pretty much to what I just printed.

Hobbies: Modelcars of coarse!! I also like to plunk on the guitar, and mess with the computer. I am not real good at those last two hobbies, however! I still enjoy trying though.
