It's a great hobby playing with models. Almost to the point of addiction I might add. smile.png Like many others, I've been in and out of the hobby for quite some time. It wasn't until the last 7 years or so did I actually start, or attempt, to go at it full time. At first I got into model planes after visiting a local airshow. I think it's an easy bug to catch after seeing all the planes up close, so I immediately went out and purchased my kit and supplies. The process was pretty slow because I really wanted to learn all the techniques. This of course turned me into an armchair modeler for quite sometime, but I did learn a lot.

While waiting for the paint to dry, so to speak, I ended up getting involved in RC planes. I made my own plane from scratch which was a great feeling seeing it fly. It was a nice trainer plane that kept me busy for a good year or so. This of course took me away from model planes, but I was still happy since I got to fly them now.

Of course I soon realized that you had to wake up at the crack of dawn just to fly in decent conditions. This worked for a while, but it got old fast. I then decided to join a local model railroad club and traded in my wings for rails. I learned a lot about layout construction, electrical wiring, DCC, scenery and weathering.

While trains are still an important part of the hobby for me, I ended up wanting to go back to my roots. I have a tendency to get bored pretty quick, so I started looking into Sci-fi, and soon became hooked on Maschinen Krieger. After that I came back around to aircraft and cars again.

I now have an interest in all model things. I guess I like to change it up. Anyhow, hello to everyone and thanks for having me here.

Regards,

Burt

Welcome. Like you, I've been in most of the different fields of modeling over the years. It's interesting to me how techniques and materials from various genres can cross-pollinate and lead to building better models of everything.

Again, welcome. This is a good bunch of guys with a lot of knowledge and encouragement to share. B)

Thanks, guys. Looking forwarding to sharing and learning. I don't have a lot of experience with model cars, but this looks like the place to learn.
