    I have been building models as far back as I can remember. I havent had much time to work on them in the last decade, but I still pull them out and build on them some. Ill get back into it again if I get someplace I can leave them out rather than putting them away ever time I finish working on them. I have apox. 30 models in the closet, along w/ paint, glue, air brush, compressor ETC that I am waiting for a chance to work on.

    My father and I have hundreds of models in our basement. We've been building them since I can remember, and since he can remember. We buy all the old discontinued kits mostly big rigs. I could probably buy a couple real k5's if I cashed them all in. It's such a great hobby and I need to make more time for it! I should post some pics of my favotire models and put them up for all of you guys to see. and so should you guys!
