I stopped building models when I was fifteen. Forty nine years later - in February 2018 - I joined this Forum and started building again. I've had lots of fun; I've completed ten cars, three trucks, and one airplane.
That's fourteen builds, but there's a fifteenth picture in this thread too. I didn't build it, but it was inspired by a model I built in May: a Citroen 2CV. I've always wanted one, and gazing at my model eventually broke down all resistance and caused me to take action. Six months later I took delivery of my 1:1 version, a total restoration to my very exacting specifications, built by Sander Aalderink in the Netherlands.
I'm out of garage space for 1:1 cars now but I have plenty of space left for models, and I look forward to another year of building fun. Many thanks to all the fine people here for your inspiration and encouragement, and Merry Christmas!
