Hi from New York City

Recommended Posts

Hey everyone!  I'm Jim, I've been lurking on the board for quite some time and check in most days but I finally decided to start posting properly (my first build is here: http://www.modelcarsmag.com/forums/topic/109732-red-barons-rod/ )

I've been more of a buyer than a builder to date to be honest, but I'm determined to finish some builds this new year and really get involved in the community.

Great to be here!

Hey Jim!   Here's a personal invite to check out the Tri-State Scale Model Car Club.   We have members from NY-NJ-PA (and a few other states!).

We meet in Perth Amboy, NJ within a few steps of the railroad station, so you could take the train in from the city!

Check us out on our website...

Welcome aboard Jim! Your handle is interesting as I was once a cab driver myself many years ago. I bet you and I could trade quite a few crazy cab stories! Got out of it back in '99, and wouldn't think of doing it today here. Folks have gotten too crazy over the years! :o

Thanks for the warm welcome guys! 

Tom - that sounds great - I had no idea anything like that existed!  I'll check the site out, thank you for that!

Bill - I bet we could!  Although, I bet we both have a few not safe for the board!  It's getting tougher out there with the new Boro cabs and Uber but there's still a living to be made...it's a young man's hustle tho!

Step right on board, Jim! You're in a great area with many great model car shows happening around you. One of the best, "Model Car Challenge" hosted by the Long Island Auto Replica Society (LIARS), holds their annual event in Nassau County each November. And the BIGGEST of them all - "NNL East" - hosted by the Tri-State Model Car Club is held each April in Wayne, NJ.

Check out these websites for starters:

<liarsmodelcarbuilders.com> and <nnleast.com>

That'll keep ya busy for a while! Maybe you'll join one of the clubs. I'm also a vendor at both shows, please feel free to PM me with any questions.

Welcome again. We'll see ya at the shows, and... ENJOY!! -- Ernie :>)
