About Me

Howdy everyone. Just a little about myself here. I started out building model cars as a kid at the age of 10.. (seems like another lifetime ago). I got away from it in my teen years and didn't get back into it until I was in my early 30's where I started taking my hobby building seriously. I learned alot from many modelers in those days. Attended many contests and shows, and even promoted a few shows of my own with the help of Ryders Hobby Shop out of Grand Rapids, Mi. During those years, I would attend a car show in St Ignace, Mi (one of the largest in the state at the time), where I met Boyd Coddington of American Hot Rod Fame, who would come to the show, and was even a guest judge of the local model car show that was part of the main car show. He and I had many chances to talk druing his visits to the shows, and he complimented many of my builds.  I got out of the hobby again in the Mid 90's and sold off my collection and most of my supplies. A couple of years ago, I retired from work, and my wife, encouraged me to try my hand back with my hobby (guess she thought I needed something to do to keep me out of trouble LOL). I'm glad I listened to her. I've been having fun with the hobby again. Especially thanks to all the great hobbists here on the MCM forums.
