Old guy new to modeling

Recommended Posts

Greetings and salutations. My name is Tim. I'm 41, living in the Lexington, ky area and I want to start modeling. I just wanted to say hi and apologize in advance for any stupid questions I may ask. Can anyone tell me if there is a modelers club in the lexington area? I'm looking forward to getting a ton of info from the forum.

Thanks again,

Tim.

Welcome Tim! There are some great clubs in yuor area, and several shows that are not going to be far from you throughout the year as well. Do not worry about stupid questions. Ask away. The nice thing about the online community, is that feedback is quick, and your learning curve and be quickly smoothed out.

Enjoy!

The only club and shows I can find so far are in Cincinnati and unfortunately they meet on Monday nights and my work schedule doesn't allow for that.

Well, Tim, you've already offended me. When someone arrives here and claims to be an "old guy" I expect that person to be older than I am. So, you whippersnapper, you'd better break out the apologies and pronto. I mean, I'm only halfway to one hundred!

Anyway, I'll forgive you in advance. And I'll graciously welcome you to the forum. There really is an invaluable wealth of modeling information here and most of us are pretty helpful when we want to be.
