From the mediocre state of Kentucky

Not originally from Kentucky, but ended up here working for Mercedes-Benz. I am the lead Smart car tech, and dabble in Sprinter vans, plus I do a bit of gunsmithing for myself. I started modelling at the age of 3. Good memories for the last 27 years. I got out of it for awhile when a fire decimated my apartment in Tennessee, lost everything, and a spot of bad health for the final kick in the teeth. But now I am slowly getting back into it. I enjoy the less mainstream and more difficult kits. I have a small collection I need to hit hard. Finding time is always troublesome. I primarily stick the the 1:24 and 1:25 scale for the ease of storage. Most of my builds are out of the box, however I am starting to see the fun, enjoyment, and shear terror of a full custom build, and may look into it with one of my more common kits.

Oh yeah, the name, ChiefInspector. Comes from my favorite scene from the movie Hot Fuzz :)

The last picture of my recent builds before the fire claimed them.

Welcome aboard from another Kentuckian! I'm down here in Danville. I moved here from Mich. 8 years ago. I'm glad you're doing well after the fire and are rebuilding your collection. I had a basement flood when I lived in Mich. and lost about 150 built models and about 75 kits. I know the feeling...
