    My name is Gary and I live in Columbus,Ks.My model story is like alot of others.Built as a youngster,mostly semis,and then lost interest.Started building again 6 yrs ago when a friend got me an International paystar 5000 kit as a Christmas gift.Up until a couple years ago I never even thought of an airplane model kit.Built a 1/72 academy p-51 and have since got several more plane kits.The P-51 is my favorite plane with the F84 coming in a close second.Hope to learn some new techniques here.

    G'day Gary. Being a born and bred Californian, married and living now in Australia, my wife often tells me "well, your not in Kansas any more Todo"!

    Welcome to the forum.....

    Welcome Gary, I totally agree about the builds you will see here. Many could be flown away if you were tiny enough. I've learned more in a year than in the last 40 on my own
