Hi, I'm new to this hobby, actually I'm pretty amateur. I've built several kits before, but nothing special. My favorite thing to build is showroom factory models. Right now I'm working on a somewhat complete 1961 Impala sleeper I got at a flea market for $3. I just finished a 1987 Grand National. I normally build real cars, I own a classic project car that I'm working on. As soon as I figure out how to work images on here, I'll upload pics.

Welcome Joe!  I'm just 90 minutes south of you, down I-79.  Have you been to any of the model shows in Pittsburgh or surrounding area yet?  There is one tomorrow, just down the road from me.
