I finally fought my way through all the cyber loopholes it seems to take to do anyything on a computer these days and got signed up.Thanks for all the guidance and help from younger friends(and grandchildren)that helped me get going!
My name is Tom Woodruff.I am 71,married for almost 50 years to and amazing woman who is also my best friend,and have been modeling since the 1950's.
I have built a lot of models over the decades mostly hot rods and customs.This common hobby we all have has brought me some of my most treasured friends and associates.I have participated in a few contests in my younger years and through that venue met some really great people that I now count among lifetime best friends.
I took a 20 year break from all modeling while recovering from the tragic loss of a child and now after retiring 3 years ago have started building again.A friend recommended this site to me as a way to see what's happening in the modeling world and it has been eye opening to say the least.
I have not been totally removed from modeling all those years as I was lucky enough to be involved with the founding of the NNL in 1980 in my garage here in Jackson Center,ohio.
I have finally gotten some photos onto a photo sharing site and am trying to get that file posted here to show the result of my first ever diorama.I found all of the techniques on line and here on this site so it has had a very positive effect for me.If you're intrested look for my 1925 Indian Gasoline station building.Thanks!!
