Hello, looks like a great site and I decided to join.
I was big into building models during my younger days, planes, autos, model trains, rockets you name it. Joined the Army, went to college, got married, had kids, started a business and all that good stuff. Always missed the hobby so a few months back I started buying kits, paint, supplies and have finally carved out enough time to get back at it.
As my username suggests, I'm a huge Audi fan. I owned a 1998 A6 and my pet project was rebuilding a 1991 V8 Quattro. I've always been a big fan of racing- NHRA, NASCAR, rally, Formula 1, you name it. Getting in touch with my youth again, built a huge AFX track in the garage which my boys actually think is as much fun as video games (or at least they are humoring me,) also got them into 1/285 GHQ wargaming, model rockets and Peter Frampton- yes, I miss the 70's.
Every time a new box of goodies shows up at the door my wife just shakes her head. I asked her last week, "what would you rather I did - buy a plastic Aston Martin for $ 30 or a full sized one ?" That usually ends the conversation.
I hope to get a few pics of what I've been working on up in a few weeks.
