About Olderisbetter



Hello Everyone,

I am a born again modeler. I started building at about age 10 in 1955. Then when I got my  first 1:1 at age 16, I forgot all about the models. After a life as an aircraft mechanic and auto mechanic, among other things, I retired a few years. I just started building again about one year ago.. Although I am American, I have chosen to retire to Thailand, where I have lived for 7 years. This makes getting kits, parts and supplies very difficult but not impossible.

My main interest is cars of the 40's-50's. As a young mechanic I worked on many of these cars and subsequently drove them. Also cars of the 60-70's era, but I have less interest in them. I like to build bone stock, so the youngsters can see what these cars were actually like. I went through the customizing craze, both with models and 1:1 cars. But now I prefer original. It's all fun whatever you like.


You all have advanced the hobby so far since I started as a kid. I can remember when the first 3 in 1 AMT kits came out.....maybe that was 1958.
