I found out about your club from the flyer I picked up at Discount Hobby Warehouse advertising the Winterfest contest. My name is Oggie and I’m a long time model builder. My interest is mainly in sci-fi kits. As you know life has a way of making you put hobbies on the backburner but I’ve tried to sneak in a few when I could through the years. My kids are getting older now and am finding a little more time for myself. With all the new exciting kits coming out from companies like Polar Lights, Moebius and Pegasus I’ve really gotten back into the hobby.
I’ve tried to expand my building skills by getting into airbrushing and some LED lighting. I’ve learned a lot of techniques from watching youtube videos and have been inspired by the many masters that are out there. I’ve even posted my own youtube vids under the name interstellarmodeler. So…it’s great to see that there’s a group of people locally who share my interest in this great hobby. I occasionally post things on forums for Scifimodelaction and starshipmodeler.com. I look forward to participating in this forum too and possibly Winterfest. Not sure I have enough time to attend any meetings just yet. Anyway…hello everyone!
