I had three older brothers (and one younger sister) and there was always one of us building some kind a aircraft, be it a scale plastic model or a free flight rubber band powered kit or a gas powered U-Control plane. The end of summer vacation was typically highlighted by the riding our bikes the the waterfront of Toronto and watching the Canadian National Exhibition Air-Show with memories of seeing my first Starfighter or B-52 or being able to (almost) see inside the cockpit of a banking Corsair flying by within the breakwater. By the time I graduated High School though, the model building took a back seat.
Having a itch to make 'something' and being a bit of a history nut and always loving the technical aspect of things, somehow I found my way back to scale modelling after being away for about 35 years.
Finding a community of scale modelers like iModeler is such a confidence booster and provides such great support for any hobby enthusiast.
I looking forward to completing a lot of kits in my old stash and some of the kits from recent purchases - somehow I have ended up in owning over 400 aircraft kits yet to be built - so I do have some work ahead of me and my newly acquired bifocals are ready.
