I have been on the  forum awile but I figured I would  introduce myself !

   My name is  Danny and  I  have a  real  problem!

  I'm very  addicted to styrene!

 

 and i'm very  lonely here  in south  ms!

 trying to  find some  modeling  buddies!     I would  even  be  happy with  someone from the  nearby Louisiana area or the  sothern Alabama area!

     lookin for some  fellow  styrene friends here to get together with once in a  moon!

                                                 :rolleyes:

Hey Daniel,  This hobby does put us in an isolation to a certain degree. Spending many hours at a time bellied up to a bench,  chin deep in small tools and parts under a flood of bright lights with obnoxious headgear providing visual assistance is kinda like being in a bubble. 

 

We must like some part of the isolation or we would be involved  in more social settings like billiards,  darts,  bridge,  poker, church,  bingo,  etc...

 

I joined a model club a while back and realized that it was not really my bag.  It did introduce me to some great  people with some over-the-top building skills.

 

MCM Forums keep me in contact with others who have the same vice.  (from a distance :))

 

The isolation just seems to go along with the hobby.

 

PS...There are far worse things to do with our spare time

 

Peace out,

JunkPile
