Started modeling cars when I was around seven years old till I was about sixteen, till I discovered girls.. lol Joined the Army immediately after Highschool graduation and didn't get back to the hobby for almost seventeen years.. Picked up a 1/72 P-51 mustang kit and fell in love with the hobby and aircraft instantly.. later delved into and became totally hooked on armor modeling as well.. I manage a Facebook modeling group called " WWI To Beyond Modeling " and my personal blog on Facebook " The Piedmont Modeler".. look forward to to seeing what I can pick up from this forum as I'm constantly trying to learn more each day about the hobby..
