My name is Bob, and I'm from Raleigh, NC. I'm a gulf war veteran and an avid modeler for about 25 years now. Main interest is motorsports. Straight line, Le Mans, F-1, JGTC, Rally, INDY and Sprint racing... I love it all, and I want each of my builds to reflect my crazy passion for motorsports and plastic modeling in general.

 

I stray now & again to other subjects, and I do make time for a fun project after finishing up an intense build.

 

I also restore old plastic models, but opening a new box of fresh styrene will always be my favorite thing!

 

So....stop by and say hello!

Hey Clarence - thank you for looking in on me - I see you specialize in 1/72..... My eyes aren't strong enough for 1/72 scale anymore, so believe me when I say I admire what you do!

The whole secret to get an OptiVisor of some sort. One advantage of 1/72 is that you can store more models on a given shelf. Also, I have a Rat Fink model among them.

I know the feeling; I have two cats. Fortunately, they both seem to understand the word 'no' so far.

Very cool Bob. That is a nice looking collection. I have few race cars that I need to build as well. Btw, all those markings on the tires of the F1...did you paint them with a brush or is that a decal?

Hey Mike, for the tire markings on the race cars, I use a refillable acrylic paint marker made by Molotow - check out their website!
