My name is Rick and ive been doing models for years now..Yes i am old, but building models keeps me young..lol. I live in Michigan which in the winter slows me down on model building but i hope i have fixed that problem by building a model room in my shop i have( dont have heat in the main shop) but this room will have radiant heat source, so i can build throughtout the year. I have a couple of projects on the bench im working on. so when i get out there i will post some pics. Cars im into are Ferrari's, muscle cars, and early trucks that i can lower some. I hope you enjoy some of my builds

Hi Rick and welcome. I'm from up around the Traverse City area. I've lived in a few towns around West Michigan, from Grand Rapids (can you say Ryders Hobby Shop.. LOL) to Big Rapids, and now just North of TC. I haven't found any Clubs up my way yet either. Like you, I built a hobby room in in my garage and heated it. I build year round now (when I have time), I still haven't constructed a paint booth yet, so painted is a little tough in the winter, but hopefully that that will get done before this winter.

Always nice to see another Michiganite- the correct term for us. The whole Michiganian vs. Michigander thing is just silly. :D
