What were your highlights?

I know we are not in December yet, but you never know, it might not happen so it's best to start now. LOL!

John, sounds like that is a wonderful highlight. Thanks for sharing.

Of course, my highlight of 2012 is not going to be seen until January 2013 when I got to work and collaborate with the Old Man (Mr. Donn Yost), a first of several wonderful sorties into styrene addiction.

Well I finally got around to putting an SBC in my 1:1 Regal, I started many builds and only finished a few (no surprise there lol), went to a few contests where I got to meet a couple of MCM members, and I won my class in 2 of the contests. It's been a good last year ever lol!

This year has a been a lot of diffrent things. Found out that i'm going to be a grandfather tops it all off. But for the modeling world I was able to get back to doing what I like best and that is 1 off cars and working hand and hand with RPM Custom Hot Rods and Area51 Paint people doing "Runt". For wins I only made 3 shows this year and got to see my friends from Puerto Rico at the Indy show this last Nov and also winning the "Best Replica" with Boyd Coddington Memorial 61 Chevy.

Well...... I turned 65 back in April. My Grandson is now walking and starting to talk. Our family has their health. The roofs over our heads are secure. The cabinets and freezer are well-stocked. I finished 4 models so far. I'm building one model for a friend who is alive, and another for one who is no longer here. It has been a good year so far, and I had a lot to be thankful for on Turkey Day.

This year has been rewarding as far as building models, and contests go.
I got 2 of my 3 total contest wins this year, and it has been very motivating for me.
And like Bill said, I got to get out and make some new friends, and fellow model builders.
Looking forward to next year.

The best highlight by far for me this year man is marring my best friend :) Now my wife..

And she is starting to build models with me too man, that is just soo cool. Plus Kel is so supportive of me playing with little cars lol

Model wise, just all the great kits Round2 & Revell have been releasing again. And I hope next year (if we get there man) is just as good dudes

Peace

My major highlight for the year was receiving my very first award for one of my builds from an online build-off/contest.
