Well, I've been lurking in the shadows at Cardmodels for awhile...and it's time to see some daylight. My cardmodeling fascination started about a year ago after a long run carving and restoring original World War II recognition (spotter) airplane models. I still do the rec models however the cards have become the primary model activity. Needless to say my models don't come close to the quality I see on this website but I am getting better. Some of the basic skills are still need a lot of work. Every model brings up a new challenge so I guess it's ok to ask questions about different aspects of the hobby...until somebody tells me I can't be trained.
