Hello,

 

I am new to scale auto model building.  I used to model all the time when I was a youngster.  Now I am fifty!  I started to dabble in models again over the last few years with what little spare time I have.  Mostly horror figure models.  I am going to try and set more time aside and get into scale auto modeling.

 

I figured this would be a good place for a total rookie to ask for a lot of advice from the masters.

 

I hope this will be the start of a brand new hobby for me to relax and enjoy!

 

Chris

Welcome Chris!  I'm 55 so you certainly fit right into the age demographic of the hobby! 

 

If you'd like to get a good overview of the hobby, my club runs NNL East, a good size show in New Jersey on April 26th.  It would be well worth your trip from CT to see over 2000 models on display and two rooms of vendors, including the major manufacturers displays.
