I was an aspiring modeller for a few yrs and quit the hobby when I was 15 yrs old. That was 40 yrs ago. Well, now disabled and LOTS of time on my hands, I decide to give modelling a second try. My have things changed! Better selection of kits, paints, lots of aftermarket stuff! Holy smokes! I've stockpiled a couple dozen kits to get me going, mostly late 60's-early 70's Mopar Muscle along with some Chebbies. I have a '67 GTO that I'm planning on doing up like my 1:1 I had when I was19. Hope the memory serves me well! 389 TriPower 4 speed Hardtop. My dad made me sell it cuz of speeding tickets. :(

Anyway, this is a great site and I hope to someday be a contributor. Lord knows I've gleened tons of info from here already, and I thank the knowledgeable folks here.

Welcome aboard John. There are lots of us "Round 2" modelers here. As you said, "My how things have changed"... Everything seems to have gotten a lot better in this great hobby.
