That's why it's part of my 'Retirement Plan' ! That comment about the 'cheap Airfix' kits if a main reason my Dad didn't mind my interest, because he had to watch what was spent. There used to be a company in Detroit, Michigan, called PYRO that did a whole line of models that were cheap [cost-wise] and I did a lot of them, but only of older cars, '20's 30's '40s, '50s and alla that...but cheapness was a GOOD thing!
13 years ago, I tried getting back into model building with a Cobra Mustang. I was working on it one night during a hurricane, and it was so relaxing, and so much fun.
But these days, my hobby passion lies with guitars, amps, and effects. But I still really appreciate a well done model, and get the twinge to try it all again.
Just wait til RETIREMENT hits the scene...Like I did, you have a LOT MORE TIME for stuff! Maybe you could try it then!
That's what a gentleman does on an ad for a bunch of Elder Living homes 'American House' or something like that, and I, for the first time finally had someone who had the same feeling I did about what to do with your time that appealed to you! LOL
Now. I've finally purchased the Photo-etched parts and extras to begin on that A 10 Warthog. Gettin' ready! LOL
