In Topic: Why Do We Build Models???

20 July 2011 - 01:36 AM

Seeing as how everybody is posting why they got in to the game. Here's my story. I told u why I build. I've only been building for 2 years. I've always liked cars as far back as I can remember my most vivid memory is of me and my mate playing with what I think must of been about 1/12 or 1/16 general lee on my neighbours well. We would make jumps for it. It was diecast and man that got some abuse lol. So when I got a job (at 15) I bought a cheap mini (old style) and we used to rag it round the farmers field. It was just 5 minute walk away. So when I turned 17 passed my driving test. Bought a road legal car. And from then the cars have just come and gone 35 in total and I'm 32 years old. My favourite car being a Tuscan grey Renault 5 gt turbo. (not to be confused with a turbo 2) it was a machine 1.4 turbo'd engine, which the previous owner had spent a small fortune on. This car was amazing it was small but extremely fast. It would keep up with a scooby wrx. The car was my pride and joy. But it came to a sad end. After only owning the car for 5 days, some twat in a 4x4 nailed right into me. Luckily the car was fitted with full harness seat belts. I was unhurt but my pride and joy written off. B) fast forward ten years and I'm hoping I can recreate my pride and joy in either a model kit. Or simply modify a diecast.
I only got into models by chance as I used to be an rc man. And while I was on the rc forums I spotted this forum and thought I'd pop In for s look. Seen some awesome cars and thought I'd give it a bash. That was 2 years ago in November, look now I sold all my rc stuff, converted my tool shed in to a "man cave" and have a loft full of unbuilt kits. So my thanks goes out to gregg for having this site. I wouldn't have this amazing hobby without spotting this place. And thanks also for the builders like rommell who not only build amazing models. But also help out the noobies like me :blink:
