Hi from PA

Recommended Posts

Hello, as they say "things always circle back". I built models from the age of 13 or so. Then found other interests as time went by. (Art school, college, etc) Never lost interest in cars. Now I'm 54 and I'm back to models. I even have a store in my area that specializes in model cars. Lots of old models that bring back memories and make me want to build them again ( only this time not built in 2 or 3 days hahaha).

Welcome to our plastic playground Greg.  I also built models in my early teens but then discovered girls, cars, and bars where I originally lived on Long Island in NY.  We moved to PA in late 2006.  My daughter's husband's parents live in Irwin.

Welcome, Greg. I'm in Centre County, near Penn state U. I was out of the hobby for about 30 years and came back too. BTW, I used to deal with a company in North Huntingdon in my engineering career. It was Quality Fabricating, a sheet metal fabricator. I made some good friends there!
