Getting back to modeling
Posted by DMX512 on Friday, July 20, 2018 8:39 PM

I have not built a model in 30+ years. Well, I started a 1/16 Cobra S/C while my wife was pregnant and still have yet to complete it. The engine/trans is assembled and painted. That was 13+ years ago.

I am looking forward to learning more from all of y'all.

"Getting back to modeling"? You're too old to be a model. Better to get a hobby. ;)

My favorite color is clear. I am also ambidexterous, I can screw up equally well with either hand. I am 53 years old and been building for most of that time. :)

LOL!

I used to have the legs for it but then, somehow, a belly and gray hair showed up. 

I think you are right. I will try to find a hobby. Hmm, perhaps building plastic model kits might be a good hobby.

Thanks for the laugh.

I hear it CAN be therapeutic. ;)

Welcome to the forum.
