My name is Pat and I'm a single father.I started building models back in the early '70's.First one was the '72 GMC pickup when it was new.Got away from it a few times but,getting ready to get back to it.

Have several projects in mind at the moment.Just need to get started on one after some parts gathering.

Welcome Pat.  

 

Here is a link to a Portland area model club and shows, if you're interested.  There are a couple members on the forum.

Unfortunately,the closest one I can find is about 150 miles away.

I only have to go to my closet for a decent selection even after selling off about 40 or so models lately.Narrowed down my collection to get some money and,hopefully,make it easier to decide on a project and stay focused.So far,it's not working that well. :lol:

Welcome to the forum Pat!  S.A.B.A. is a great club to join if you want a monthly injection of inspiration. 

I used to live in Gresham btw.
