I should have seen this days ago when I signed up. Adam Wayne here, originally from Alliance Ohio, now in Marrietta by the river. I am 52 yrs. young and recently started collecting some models again after a long absence from the hobby. I pretty much build whatever strikes my fancy but mostly I'm into show rods and wild customs. No matter what it is though, if I look at it and can instantly see the paint job I'd do, I buy it. Might never get built! But I buy it anyway. I think we all do that on occaision.
I'm not really the type to take a lot of pictures, I know that helps other builders but for me it slows down the build.
I had been watching these pages, mostly through google searches and finally pulled the trigger to join. I know that the only stupid questions are the ones that go unasked, but there are a lot of annoying and repetitive questions I will try to avoid.
I am a Gemini, so I can go flocking, or I can go embossing powders. I'll use acrylic and lacquer on the same paint job, strip paint with whatever will and have a hard time deciding what color to paint particular projects.
I have glued my fingers together before.. I suspect I shall again. I have cut myself on sprues! And I have exploded paint cans out of sheer stupidity.
I have lost model parts without ever moving. And I once came home to find my girlfriend gone and my Millenium Falcon super glued to the cieling. Sadly I no longer have a photo of that.
So if you're looking for a rediculous ramble or a "What the..?" moment. Check out some of my posts.. they'll only get weirder once I'm comfortable here. Within certain sensible preset parameters of course.
