I know we have members here from all over the world... Europe, Australia, South America, Africa (yeah Chris, I mean you!), the "great white north," etc.

How cool is that? Literally a worldwide group of people sharing a common interest. The Olympics got me thinking about how different people from different places can all come together due to a common interest. In the case of the Olympics, sports... and in our case, the hobby we all share.

So how about a "parade of nations" right here... just like the Olympics opening ceremony?

Let's hear from all of you who live outside the US. Chime in, show your colors! We want to hear from all of our friends all over the world! Step up and let us know where you are!

Okay, I will chime in and say the USA. There are some people here in the South that feel we will still win our freedom from the North!

I'm pure "Born In The U.S.A." and proud of it, but my heritage is English, Welsh, Scottish, Irish, French, German, and 1/16 Native American (Cherokee). Yep, I'm a MUTT! It takes all kinds to be a worldwide group like we have here, and I'd like to think I'd fit in just about anywhere in it... at least in Europe or North America. Here's one, a Yenko Stinger, that got it's start right here in Pennsylvania, where I've lived my whole life:

I sometimes also refer to myself as a "Heinz"... You know, "57 Varieties"! :lol:
So, Corey, have you built any models with a connection to your native Kansas?

No, hadn't even thought about it actually. I've built replicas of a couple cars that belong to native Kansans though, LOL, but that's about it.
