I am 75 years old, a retired metal fab mechanic/computer programmer/model builder. I've been making models since I was about 11 years old. I started with flying models, control line, a little RC and lots of plastic. I've made all scales but my favorite is 1/48th of WW2 aircraft from all countries. I have about 100 models stored and displayed at home. I had a World War2 exhibit of my aircraft at our local library. I learn something new every time I make a new build. iModeler.com is a great place to share your thoughts and show your stuff. I love and appreciate the optimism of all the members.
