I've been an on and off lurker for a while now and figured it was time to join up. Always loved building kits from a young kid. My time is limited now, so not as active when it comes to building, but still enjoy checking out other people's projects and finished kits. My main interest is in traditional '40s, '50s, and early '60s custom cars, but also love hot rods, early drag cars, and stock mid '50s FoMoCo products.

First kit ever built: Revell '57 Ford snap (9 yrs old)
First glue kit ever built: AMT '34 5w coupe (11 yrs old)
Favorite kit: AMT '56 Ford and AMT '57 Ford

Looking forward to making new friends here!

Luke

Uhhh...Luke... probably not the ideal place to say that? I'm sure Luke meant to say as far as far as kustoms, hot rods, and vintage style models, which aren't everybody's cup of tea.
