Another newbie!
Posted by Sundance on Tuesday, November 14, 2017 5:40 PM

I am another newbie here and glad to be included and thank you to the site managers.  I am not a techie but I'll learnmore ad I go along (hopefully).  A brief history of me.  I started modeling around 9 or 10 years and I remember my brother and I building the old highway pioneers cars.  I spend some time doing aircrft and a few ships but they were nothing like building cars.  One of my first 1/25th scale cars was the AMT 1959 (I think) Ford Thunderbird convertible.  My dad bought it for me when we went on vacation a 7-8 hour trip in the car.  I do believe he bought it for me to keep me quiet.  I progressed on throughout the 60's and into the early 70's.  I had to put the hobby on hold during my first short marriage and another 20 years in the United States Air Force.  I got back into the hobby around 1984 or so and am still at it today.  My favorite subjects to build are vintage dirt tracks stock cars (modifieds), street rods and early 60's era drag cars although I do build in other areas also.  Outside of modeling I also enjoy college and pro football, hockey and playing golf.  I retired fully last december and now have moretime to model.  I guess I've bent your ears long enough o I'll sign off for now and hope to hear from some of you in the future.  Thans for the time.

Welcome to the forum, Al. It's good to have you aboard. Enjoy.
