Hello everyone, I am a retread to modeling. I began in 1959 with a '40 Ford Coupe Trophy Series from AMT and built solid (almost weekly glue bombs) through 1968, joined the USAF and built sporadically until 1984; got tired of packing and moving them so I sold whole collection :cry: . After retiring I picked up a couple on sale (Lindberg 67 Chevelle and Revell JG Monte Carlo - $5 each), they are still in the boxes along with about 200 more patiently awaiting their time to hit the bench. I enjoy building '60s drag cars, hot rods, lead sled customs, and haulers (trailers, low boys, and enclosed rigs.) Looking forward to getting familiar with the site and maybe sharing some of my work.

I agree with Mike..........WELCOME TO THE BOARD! It's always nice to hear of builders returning to the hobby, especially you guys that have served our country. I'd love to see some of your work, too.

Welcome gasser, I could agree with your quote more.
BTW you might want to put your full name in the signature(refer to the stickie at the top of this section). Just a neat way to keep us all on the same page.
