Hi all

My name is dan.  I hale from Michigan I had not done a model for 38 years  now I am disabled and unabled to work.  I needed something and had no idea what.   then my son came to me with help with his snap tite.  A light bulb went off in my head and I have been doing models every sense, and loveing it.

Welcome Dan.   Good reason to get back into the hobby.  It's a great way to pass time, I've been doing it since retirement and don't know what I would do without it.

Welcome aboard dan  glad to here you found modelling again, i to hadn't built a model in probably 30 years. Its got tin very addictive for me since starting again 5years ago, but i find it very relaxing and forget about life for awhile.  you will learn a lot from the guys here.

 

 cheers  Ewan
