    Hi Patrick,
    That's a really nice build you have there, let the modelling roll. As you can tell from my tag photo I'm a truck nut but I do some cars to ease the brain off of those 18 wheelers for a time anyway. The battle with the Big C continues with me but I'm well enough to sit at my workbench and fight it that way as well as all the other things life throws at you, (you know where I'm coming from Eh!!!).
    Rgds,
    John.

    Hi Steve, welcome again!!!! what a build you have there, how did you get that approved by the head of the "kit border patrol" I'd be locked up for good if I proposed any build like that here in the UK, also planning permission from our local council would be asking a shed (that's all I've got to work with) load of questions..................I'd just hope that the person concerned was also a modeller, it would really help.
    Anyway great Man cave and also great models as well..............enjoy the forum!!!!

    Hi Patrick, Welcome to the forum and back to modelling again, I find making a model one of the best stress relief actions out there and you get to see all of your efforts as a model of what you personally like be it Cars, Trucks, or any other model type it's a great tonic. Like you I came back into making models again after a long break, I also needed to get some stress relief after being told I had the big C boy that stress is a big one and making models has been my help and saviour even if it's only an hour or two a week, it will make a difference.
    Enjoy your modelling and have fun doing that, there are loads of good people here on this site who will and can help you if you have any problems allowing you to make better models, what's to worry about. 
    Rgds, John.

    Hi Earl,
    I have spent a lot of time in Washington State, mostly in Seattle (Boeing) picking up new aircraft and ferrying them to airlines all over the world. As you can see I'm really interested in my namesake Trucks both Loggers and Interstate long haulers, I just love Trucks, I've also just retired and am sorting out my stash of kits in three of my lofts to get some order.
    So Welcome to the forum and I hope you enjoy your retirement making models as I do.

    Welcome Bryant, Wow 50+ Models this year, that's some schedule. Well good luck and we all would like to see your builds as they progress. We all have the bug, just some more than others but it does not mean that we are not serious builders.
    Just remember, build what you like and relax and enjoy our hobby.

    Mark,
    Life is a two way street mate, we on this forum ask the members for information which is freely given and if possible pass on our own data or tips to help any other members who strive to improve their modelling skills or just need to know some info. We all have our own topics and type of model even if it is not the exact need for our next project, we can change that model to whatever needs to be done, if we come up against a particular problem we come onto this forum to see if another modeller has had a similar problem and if they have any possible solution.
    My first point of contact would always be this forum as they say "two heads are better than one" but in this case we have heads all over the world who are willing to help if they can and all for free to another modeller.
    You can't get better than that!!!!!

    Welcome to the forum Boris, why not get the same kit for yourself, that way your son can copy from you at the same time, my dad did this with me and it made me feel great that I had made the car (a 48 Ford Coupe, I still have) all on my own,
    I was hooked then and still am, that was 50+ years ago now, I do miss my dad, but I do have my models his tips and techniques are still used today, also loads of really good memories of making models with him as well!!!
    Please remember, your never to old to model.

    Hi Luis,
    Welcome to the place to be in modelling, most important is you enjoy whatever your modelling, I use it to unwind after a hectic days work, it's amazing how a few hours modelling lowers the blood pressure!!!!!
    Just model whatever floats your boat mate and you'll soon pick up tips here and there's always someone to ask how to do stuff, we have all been there and done it......................Enjoy.

    Hi Brian,
    Welcome to our site, I can also understand where your coming from, as a fellow retiree, my wife is constantly telling me to do something to keep me motivated, but I'm really happy making my models and looking at this site at all of the fantastic builds with all of the info passed so willingly from such a great bunch of fellow modellers, so you see I'm not under her feet all of the time!!!!!
    My stash of Trucks and Cars up in both of my lofts is enough to keep me going for as long as I'm able, so I'll keep on modelling and making friends through this site.
    Power to the plastic / Resin!!!!!!
    Rgds,
