I just wanted to take a minute and say hello to the board members.  My name is John and I have a fairly typical story.  I am originally from North Dakota and building models was a great way to pass the 360 days of winter each year....lol.  I grew out of models in my teens but rediscovered this great hobby in my thirties when I was settled in WV.  I have amassed a collection that I will never come close to building all of.  This is the only hobby that I really focus on and it seems to keep me out of trouble.  I will try to share my past builds with you as well as current and future builds.

 

Thank you for allowing to play in your play-pen and I look forward to becoming part of the group!

Wayne, I am from Garrison.  It is located between Minot and Bismarck.  Garrison sits right on Lake Sakakawea.  Really not a bad place to grow up, but as I like to joke, not a bad place to be from.... :D

This would be THE place for model cars/trucks/bikes, John.  So much to see and all the new things to learn.
