Greetings,

Like many here, I started building models when I was much younger. Went back to it off an on through the years, but moving every few years for the military was not kind to the completed kits and unwrapping them after a move made me want to cry at times. The last time I was seriously working on them was 2002.

Fortunately, I didn't completely let go and still had several boxes of kits left over that my daughter recently found. She wanted to know what all these boxes of hidden toys were and she encouraged me to build some with her. Remembered how much fun it was and, now that I'm retired and do not plan on moving for a long time, I can enjoy some of this hobby.

Since last December, I've been focused on finishing partially started kits and getting my "modeling legs" under me. Binge watched lots of Adam Mann and Panzermeister36 on Youtube to review and learn some new skills.

As far as interests, I primarily work on German and Soviet world war 2 armor, but I'll also do more modern vehicles. I'm in the final days of finishing up a Sturmtiger that I hope to post pictures of soon.
