    I'm new to this forum, I'm up in the North West corner of the State in Saint John Idiana 6 miles from the State Line to Illnois.
    At the age of 74 I still love the World of Minature Cars and Trucks, the more Detail to the Kit the more I love it.
    All of you members should be Proud of your Workmanship!!

    Very Good looking Dio.
    You did a Fantistic Job with this Set up, that type of Station was close to what we had around back in the 1940's as well.
    Grateful to you for sharing with us!!

    James your really going way out there on this build, I've followed around for a bit, and I'm still amazed by your Workmanship, and your way out there kind of mind, I'm looking at a Really Bright Orange in my mind and a 429 under the Hood.

    I just joined this forum
    I just joined this forum today, my name is Mike, and I'm from Saint John, Indiana, I'm a young 73 year youngster who Loves the world of Minature, I started building Models back in the Stone Age, all we had was Wood, until the late Forties, that's when I saw my First Plastic Air Plane.
    I've built so many Models in my day,and never once have I ever stopped not likeing Models Cars Trucks Planes Ships, now I'm here in this New Era, Photo Etch, Resin, Wires, Soft Rubber Tires, and Paint of every kind, Wow!!!
    I don't build to much now as I have lost the use of my right hand, which of course I'm right handed, so if you all don't mind this guy hanging out here, I'd be forever Grateful, and I'll praise all of your Workmanship!
    Thanks again !!

    Once again the Garage is coming back to life, I was thinking that if you didn't want to reconstruct it, you could have burnt some boards to make it look like a burned out garage, but I'm so glad that your doing it again, I know that it's going to be even more nicer then before.
    Thanks for the pleasure that you give to me.
