After several months of not being activly engaged in the hobby of building as I moved to a new house, new life and a new man cave, I am finally engaged again in the active building of models of various scales and subject matter.

What’s interesting is that I am back at the starting point as most of my collection was either trashed or left behind in storage. And so I have a “fresh start” in the hobby, rebuilding a new collection of models for 2013.

I have kept a few of the “older models” as inspiration, but I am truly starting¬† over. Here are a few projects I am getting off the ground. The Airfix 1/48th scale Westland Lynx HMA 8 with so far three Eduard photo etch sets !!! Interior, Exterior, and Seat Belts.

Then there is the 1/144th scale Dragon X-15 straight out of the box…(OOB for you model afficiandos !!!)

And finally a labor of love ( I have 4 of these tractors) the Trumpeteer Russian S-65 Tractor in 1/35th scale. This frist one with resin engine parts from LZ Models of the Czech Republic.

We will se how far I get with all of these. It is fun though being back in the saddle again !!!
