About russamotto
I got back into the hobby a few years back, and wanted to find ways to improve, which is how I found this site. Since joining Armorama I have improved tremendously by learning from others here, and have actually finished a couple of kits. I model to relax and have fun, but always look to improve. I've encouraged my kids to join me both to spend time with them and get them away from TV. I build 1/35 scale armor primarily, but also aircraft and anything else I find interesting. My wife and I have five children, three with special needs, plus occasional foreign exchange students. We spend a lot of time working with kids with autism and related disorders.
