      The Report function of the forum works well. If you see someone acting up, acting out, or just being an okole, use the Report function. It works! I have it set up so it not only sends me an email, but that email is then marked with a flag, and get's put to the top of my email list. I will try to access/look at the report/topic as soon as possible, but remember, I'm on a six hour time delay, and other mods not only have a life, but a real job as well.  k den

    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!!!!!!

    Welcome to the forum Chuck, I was working in NC recently and the local Tri state IPMS chapter made me very welcome indeed, it was really great to meet like minded modellers and see what they were doing, their models were fantastic and they were only too willing to exchange tips.
    I thank them all.

    Yes that's the one, I could spend hours and hours in there, your so lucky to have it on the doorstep, I have to travel for an hour or so just my nearest store which is limited to what stock they carry because of space!!!!

    Hi Eric, Welcome to the forum, I know where you work, I was for a couple of months working at Air Canada in Montreal taking back a A319 for a lease company. My good friend was the rep taking new build 601's onto the Australian Government register. We found a really good model shop downtown which sold just about everything. Lucky we were ferrying aircraft all over the place so the extra suitcases were not a problem as we had the aircraft to ourselves.
    I'm a truck builder myself but I do make the odd car as well just to break up the production line!!!!!
    Enjoy the forum.
