Newbie here!
Posted by Anonymous on Tuesday, December 9, 2003 8:29 PM
Hello, my name is Mike, and I hail from Michigan! I'm new here, so here goes...

Although I have been building models for years, my wife recently "gifted" me a subscription to SA...and here I am! I'm sure you guys have heard it all before, but I have always modeled, but never seriously.

About two years ago, when my son was three, he started taking an interest in my model room, and the rest is history. I started to really enjoy the hobby again through his know, like when you find that kit you've been waiting to find...and you can't wait to open it up just to smell the plastic and look at the parts!! I just really enjoy sitting down, especially at the end of the day, and just forgetting about everything else and just let the juices flow!

I predominantly build classic muscle and vintage Pro Stock racers...I'm finishing off a '70 442 W-30 conversion right now on an old Johan kit...but also have several others in various stages of completion. I also have all but one of my MPC Pro Stock series from '72-'73 finished..just waiting on finding the right price on a Grumpy's Vega!

Well, there you have it - I hope I haven't bored you to death!
