I stumbled onto this site while searching for info on the open Ertl International Payhauler kit I just purchased at the swap meet.  I'm middle-aged now, but model kits and drawing are what landed me in the automotive design and modeling career I enjoy today!

Anyway, I have lots of real car projects and am a fairly active road racer, but I'd love to get back to scale modeling in what time I have available.  There certainly seem to be a lot of skilled modelers and great tips available here.  I really love modeling and weathering trucks and construction equipment- the more obscure the better!

Welcome to the forum. It's a good place to 'get your model on'. Cheers, and enjoy the forum.

The 405 is my friend.  Not.
