I've been building models off and on for the last 30 years or so, with a 10 year hiatus for military service and starting a family. My forte is 1/35 scale armor, but I've been creeping slowly into the 1/32 scale aircraft genre. I love to build dioramas and feel the research and learning from others is more interesting than the actual construction. I've also built 4 different HO model railroad layouts, and am in the planning phase of my 5th now. If I've learned nothing else, it's how skills learned in one hobby can be used in another. That, and superglue works best in gluing my fingers together over any other type of glue.
