New guy here....
Posted by myoung on Sunday, December 22, 2019 6:38 PM

Just getting back into the hobby after a 30 year hiatus. Haven't touched a build since packing up all my stuff for a move, and just never unpacked it. Ended up getting buried in 1:1 projects instead. I still spend most of my time with the real thing, but I'm starting to get the itch to build replicas of some of my cars.

I just unpacked everything to take stock of where I left off with all the projects I had started. Yes, I still have evrything. I never really finished anything, though. Between the preference of building rather than showing, and a serious case of ADD(lol!), probably 90% of my cars are all 'in progress'. Worse yet, many have taken some damage over the years while being not so carefully packed away. Luckily, most if not all are saveable.

So far, I've been cruising the web for resources and acqiring parts on Ebay to start some builds of my 1:1 cars. So much and so little has changed in the hobby over the last few decades. I'm looking forward to getting into some builds!

Welcome to the forum,Mike. Unpacking long packed boxes of old model stuff...very exciting. The forum is a creat place to slip back into the hobby. Enjoy.
