Old guy starting over

Joined the forum a few days ago but I've been going through for a couple of weeks. I have just started building models (trucks) again after being away from the hobby for over 35 years. My first attempt has been a Kenworth K123 and it has provided a few challenges. I currently live in Alabama but grew up around Syracuse and Chittenango NY before moving down here. This forum has some really great modelers on it and I am getting a lot of ideas and help from just reading. I'm sure I will have some questions as the KW gets farther along. Thanks for letting me in.

Thanks for the welcome. I have enjoyed trying to decifer AMT's instructions. I had forgotten how they seemed to leave out some of the important positions for some pieces. Yes, the world wide web has shrunk the world tbill. I lived just outside Chittenango for about 10 years in the 70's.

Welcome, Don.

You and I (and several other members of this forum) seem to be part a rapidly growing demographic. ie.; "older" guys returning to the hobby after a long hiatus. Who says the world belongs to the young ? Old Guys Rule!

You've got the magnifying glass thing right. The eyes are going or the parts are a lot smaller than they used to be.
