Keep it up these are great ones:

Friendship... is not something you learn in school. But if you haven't learned the meaning of friendship, you really haven't learned anything.

You are never too old to set another goal or to dream a new dream.

I think that's a country song isn't it? "If your gonna be dumb, you better be tough" lol

My favorite two are drag racing ones.

"you lift, you lose" and "stand on it until you see God, and then shift."

I did not know that it was a requirement to post my models here?? I see plenty of other people who do not post builds. And besides, there is no such thing as a perfect model. What is perfect in ones eyes may not be in others.

It isn't, and nobody said it was required. I asked to see some of your work, since I appreciate nicely built models, and if you live by the "Striving for perfection" motto, I'm sure others would enjoy seeing your work as well.

I'm a fan of Bill's worked and he's shared quite a bit of what he's done, so if you two are on the same page as far as build quality is concerned, I suspect your work is something many of your fellow forum members would enjoy seeing, too. :)

With my work schedule, I am sorry to say I haven't built anything in a few years. Everything I have built is either in storage or was (sadly) destroyed by an ex wife. Hopefully that will change soon and I can start sharing my work here.
