Returning to the Hobby

Recommended Posts

During this time of semi-quarantine (other members of the household are at-risk, due to existing health issues and age), I decided to do something about the stacks of model kits that remain in my basement storage.  I haven't actually built anything in at least 20 years and when my first wife passed away 5 years ago, I sold off a number of kits and gave away my parts box (darn it X 3). 

I primarily kept 1990s reissues of 1960s kits that could be converted to period NASCAR GN and Sportsman cars (middle-1960s to early-1970s.  Due to the long layoff, I am doing quite a bit of planning in order to "get it right".  Glue choices have changed, paint choices have changed, and the hobby shops I used to visit are gone.  So getting headers and GN dirt-track tires (for one or two projects) will be a challenge.

(I have an errand to run.  I plan to be back later.)
