Jumping back in with both feet.

Getting back into the hobby after a twelve year or so hiatus. I built mostly 40's and 50"s customs but did a street rod once in a while.Before that I used to model cars with the Delaware Valley Scale Modelers in Pennsylvania in the 80's.I now reside in North Texas. I'm glad to see laquers making a come back (automotive laquer was all I used back in the day) and the kits seem to be of much better quality then I remember ,though the prices are much higher now. In the past month I have picked up a dozen or so plastic and resin kits. I've started on a Revell Merc and a Jimmy Flintstone cast of the Hirohata Merc. I'm glad I stumbled upon this forum, it looks to be very friendly, informative and full of great model builders. Hope to learn some things and to contribute where I can.

Joe, I returned as well. Used to build this stuff as a kid, I enjoy it even more as an adult. This is my mid life crisis

This at least one of the cheapest midlife crisis' I could have chosen.I seam to be enjoying it more also, Probably because we can afford to get all the kits we want to now.
