Hey from Tacoma Washingtion

Recommended Posts

Hello from Tacoma,Wa. First Time on this forum and a NEW IPMS member. I've built in scale for 50 some yrs and really enjoy it. In the past 20yrs I've stayed with the Automotive side...mostly racing(NO....NASCAR THOUGH). Alot of the short Track cars, some straight line stuff. The Military side of the scale is where I started when I recieved my first 1/72 plane for my 9th B-DAY. I really don't remember what it was. I do know it was Gray in color though...smiley20.gifI spent 8 yrs( or pretty close to that) in the Army (70-77) and plan on doing a few of the vehicles that I had an importunity to either Train on... or work with. I also like ALL the WWI and WWII airplanes. I plan on doing a few of my Favs in the near future. Right now I'm building a 1/43 36 Ford Modified with a f-150 pull truck and Trailer. Looking forward to seeing some of the GREAT Art work(builds) that Everyone does here.

Hey Dick...Thank you for the WELCOME... Yes I have heard of the Green Dragons. Infact I think That I meet a few guys from the club last weekend at the IPMS Show at Fort Warden, Port Townsend, Wa. Really enjoyed the show and it's A very Cool Place. It really reminded me a lot of North Fort at Ft. Lewis. All wooden buildings and they where kept up nicely.

Anthony's is a good place to eat. Been there a few times myself. I'm a musician and I' ve had the opportunity to eat at A lot of the Restaurants in this area. That one Ranks as a GOOD one. smiley20.gif

Gary - Is this the same Gary Davis from Tacoma that I met at the Greater Salt Lake Internationial Model Car Contest? We had some very good talks about Car Modeling and the Army over a few Brews that I really enjoyed! One thing we talked about was Atomic Annie Army Cannon. I understand that Revell is to release the old Renwall odd scale kit of this incredible gun. I got your phone call message on Saturday but I have not been able to call back. My Father-in-Law passed away and we have been busy with that. Welcome to the IPMS and this web site and look forward to talking and seeing you again. Dan King

You must be the fellow I chatted with at the raffle table. I was the awsomely handsome guy in the yellow cap on the other side of that table. Mark A. can confirm that I am truly and awsomely handsome, by the way.
