About nottheband

My name is Steve, from Sydney, Australia.  I'm mid 60's and retired, I'm a dad and grandad. 

I built models in the early 60s as a kid, then got involved in cars, girls and my engineering career, and returned to the hobby much later.  My building skills are not much, but I love cars and models, so I build street cars, rods, F1, whatever takes my fancy at the time.  Very slowly I must add. I love the 50s & 60s US cars with a heavy lean towards Mopar; also Formula 1 cars of the 70s & 80s, and some Aussie resin Holdens, and a Tamiya kit of Mick Doohan's Honda race bike.

Apart from models, I ride my mountain bike in the bush, I spend time with my family, watch my sons' and grandsons' soccer games, and ride my motorbike.  I go to motor race meets a few times a year, love the old Historic meetings, and watch the televised F1 and Moto GP races. 

I have learned heaps from this site and the magazine, and particularly enjoy the wip posts, they remind me that I'm not the only one who has modelling setbacks.  I will never have the skills shown by so many modellers on the site, but I enjoy this hobby like no other.
