    Well folks, its been a long time since I've been on here and things have changed considerably since. The B-17 project has been put on hold indefinitely. The job situation had slowly started to show signs of trouble for the last several months. Finally in September after 23 years of service the entire plant had shut down.
    Since then I have figured what the hell, maybe now is the time to start my own online hobby business. Soooo.....I've got professionals designing the site for me, I have found a wholesaler and fired off my first order with more coming. I'm initially starting off with Revell, Tamiya and Estes for models. I can go with Guillows, Academy, Italeri, Lindberg as finances and demand come into play.
    If you guys have any suggestions or ideas on what you might like let me know. The name will be Thebuilderofthingshobbies.com. Glad to be back on here!!

    Welcome back. Second what Matt as said, just ask a mod first before doing stuff like that.

    Jan, that means he would have to apply for a liquor license to sell what you trade in. I don't think it's going to work man.:lol:
