Hey everybody I just wanted to drop in and say hey. I've just recently, a couple days ago actually, started building models again. I loved building them when I was around 12-15 or so but once I got my drivers license they kind of went to the back burner. I'm now 28, and have kids of my own. I had mentioned something that I wanted to build another kit a while back. A friend of mine got me a Revell kit, an 81 Grand Prix and an 86 Monte Carlo Aero-coupe. They are both #3 Dale Earnhardt cars (my favorite driver since I was about 3 or 4). It was a great gift and I was excited to get started. Well we had our second child a short time after that so I didn't ever start on it and it got put on a shelf in the garage.
I cleaned the garage out this past weekend and saw that box. Monday after work I stopped at Hobby Lobby and picked up some supplies and started on it that night. I've been working on it every night after work so far and I forgot how much I enjoy doing this. I'm not great at it, but it's starting to come back. I remember the smell of that testor's paint and glue like it was yesterday.
Anyway, sorry I got a little long there, just excited to find a forum to share my passion with others.
