New to the site, but not new to model-building
Posted by jhinfaith on Friday, September 20, 2019 4:08 PM



The name's Jesse Huongvilay. Although I am new to this site, I am, however, not new to scale model car building. So I lurked around these forums last night and all through the night and can see how really good this site is for people to share their scale modeling experiences with others. Since I was around 12 years old, I started building model car kits, and although during that time I had very little experience in detailing model cars, at least I had a good start to model-building. So I thought i'd come here to share my modeling experiences with you people, and in advance it is a blessing to meet you all. Smile May you all be blessed and take care, and thanks to the people who made this website for us model-builders to show off our talents and for the model-builders themselves who worked valiantly hard to keep the hobby alive! Smile


Many Blessings

Welcome to the forum, Jesse. It is indeed a good place to share your builds and related experiences. Enjoy.

Welcome Jesse, I'm a newbie here myself and was quickly welcomed into the group. It's great to find a forum with like minded members to interact with.

Welcome to the forum.

Hey Jesse, 

Nice to meet you, I too am new to the group as well as scale model car building unlike yourself. My 12-year-old step-son is really interested in model cars, old cars, new cars, just cars in general. I thought it would be cool to look at different sites and see what I can learn and share with him.

Hi,I'm Al,  like you I've been building model cars since I was around 12 or so also. I've subscribed Scale Auto for many years but only been in the site a short time. There is a lot of good info here. I hope I can learn the ins and outs of the site so I can converse with others and share our experience.
