  1. I am a frequent flyer to Craft-tech and Hog Heaven. Time machine is close to. I think I may go Xmas shopping for myself at Hobby emporium. Try to support brick&mortar if possible. PV Hobbies was 2 mins from house, but I was too late. Will check out the the twin cities shops, as I sometimes around the rt.2 corridor for work. Have a good one
  2. Thanks for the 411. Will keep it in mind, pretty cool they are in Mass, if I ever hit the lotto…..$$$$$
  3. Hey Charlie, thanks for the hello. I live in Agawam. I appreciate the heads up about wings & wheels, west Spgfld. Will see what I can find out. Lowell is interesting, but can’t commit, as that’s 2 hrs one way for me. I have been wanting to visit the Hobby Emporium in Tyngsborough, so maybe kill 2 birds, will see? Are there any good shops up in Fitchburg/Leom/Gardner area??
  4. Hello Happy Grumpy, aka Mario. Would luv to see some of your collection. Take care
  5. Hello, My name is Marc and I have just taken up the hobby again in Jan 2021, as a Covid Hobby. I built a few models as a kid, but nothing crazy. I have fallen in love with American Muscle, Ford/Cobra are my favorites. Fell in love with the cobra 427 in my teens, reading an article about owners taping a $100 bill to the dash. They would run a 1/4 mile and if the passenger could grab it, it was theirs. The curves of the car are amazing. Anyway, I did a few armor vehicles and didnt enjoy like I did building a automobile. This is my first love in modeling. I have just completed model number #10, since Jan 2021. (2 armor, 2 planes, 1 small boat and 5 cars) Each has gotten better, but have so much to learn. I have viewed many of the boards, the work bench and under glass boards. You guys do some amazing builds/work. I am attaching a picture of my last build. Scales finishes Ford Lead foot gloss enamel and Eleanor black stripe gloss enamel. Alclad dark/black chrome. The contrast of gloss/metallic stripes and flat grey looks good to my eye. First time striping a car and just eyed it. Probably not the correct method, but not to bad using the plumbers eye, 👍. Hope to enjoy the hobby even more with some other like minded modelers. Take care and hope you say hey. Marc
