New user here - been building since I was a young kid, my first build was the Amt/Ertl 1/24 American LaFrance ladder truck with my father.  Since then, I have been building race cars and airplanes.  Being an Aerospace Engineer I really enjoy looking at the aerodynamics of the cars I build and determining how they work.  As we all do, I have a large stash but am always on the lookout for those holy grail kits that slipped through my hands when younger.  

Not sure if I will post any of my builds or in progress works as my skills are not up to the standards of the builders here, but I am taking inspiration and learning skills I will be putting to use.

Welcome!  I've been inspired by others here, and am willing to admit needing improvement, that's part of the hobby.  Just getting inspired to build something is the first hurdle, so don't hold back!

Don't let that stop you!

We are always glad to see what everyone has going on, regardless of the skill level.

By posting what you're working on, the GURU builders that hang about on this site can better be able to give pointers on certain aspects of the build process, if you are hitting any walls. I know I've been helped a lot around here, and I've been slappin' 'em together since the 60's!!!

 

By The Way....welcome to the forum!!

I notice you are in Chambersburg, not far away.  If you would ever be up for a cup of coffee and telling lies, I mean swapping tall tales, uh, I REALLY mean discussing our fabulous builds, I would welcome the opportunity.
