Back in the hobby.
Posted by Shambles on Thursday, March 14, 2019 9:40 AM

I'm a life-long, 66  year old model car builder and collector. I've been in and out of the hobby over the years and, when I retired in 2013, I got back into building and collecting 1:25 kits. I also got heavily into collecting 1:24 die cast from Danbury, Franklin, WCPD and a few other brands.

In 2017, I downsized considerably, and sold off my entire collection, supplies, and tools. After I got settled in my small home in Florida, I missed the hobby and started collecting die cast cars again, most of which I found on eBay.

Although I don't have the eyesite or dexterity of my youth, I still missed building so I'm getting back into that, and seeking out the older kits on eBay. I started a little website a few years ago and I'm in the process of revising it while keeping photos of some of my old builds.

Welcome to the forum, John. It's a good place to ease back into the hobby. Enjoy.
