Hi, my name is Dave and I have loved model building since I was a young kid living in NY. Back then it was not the sears catalog that was cool but the one from Auto World in PA that was the coolest. There are long periods that I have not built anything because I would get hung on something during the build and it would get set aside, sometimes for years. I also run marathons so there is a lot of time training that I do not get to work on anything. I love the 60's and 70's funny cars the most but I have built many other types as well. The biggest problem I have is that during the down time I would keep buying kits that I thought were cool. Now I have more than I will ever build. I should sell but just can not make myself do it, the thought is " no I may build that one someday" . I do not think I am the only one that has this problem, I hope.
