Hi everyone, I'm in N. Texas and like so many others I've been away from the hobby a long time. I did RC aircraft for decades and still do some but the modeling virus has come full circle back to slot cars where it all started.
I've spent a lot of time here re-educating myself and so much has progressed, I feel I've only scratched the surface. Just like aircraft building and flying, at least half if not more of the total enjoyment factor for me comes from the building and crafting aspect. My skills will never produce some of the art I've seen crafted here on this site, viewing it is inspirational and chasing that high level of craftsmanship has to have a positive effect on skills, if not only to increase the scrap brass pile.
At the beginning of 2013, I started back into hobby by scratch building a chassis and kit bashing a 1:32 modified from the coupe era. I had to pack it up before it was finished for the move to Texas and now it's 4 years later and I'm exited about finally opening that box and finishing my first slot car in decades.
Like many, available space is limited for me. This past month I built a lightweight PVC tilting table that is 12' x 4'5" that looks like it will work. I'm looking forward to finishing and laying the Carrera track.
Didn't intend to be too long winded, just wanted to get around to saying hi and how much I enjoy being here, so glad I found it.
