    I was a member of King Butler's original "Card Modeller's List" way back when
    that was the only group (limited to 100 members by his ISP server in Nova Scotia) on-line. At least 10 years ago...

    I find myself again mysteriously drawn to this score-cut-fold-glue-enjoy
    pastime. Almost exclusively architectural subjects. Currently doing the
    long OOP "MaKit" Brussels Great Square. Not cutting an original rare kit, but
    a 120% color photocopy enlarged from the original art (1:300) to 1:250 for
    concurrence with L'Instant Durable's cathedrals. On .008" stock, works fine The ground plate is about 30" x 36".
    Also have built some Domus...San Marco, Ponte Rialto, Big Ben w clockwork,
    starting Notre Dame and St. Stephen's Vienna.

    Personal? Pushing age 69 in SW Ohio. Still have good up-close vision! Use
    UHU "Creativ" solvent-based glue for card & paper, sometimes Aileen's "Sticky..."

    Welcome back to the fold. Looking forward to seeing your insights regarding the hobby. And the more members we have that decorated their school papers with P-51 and F-86D sketches, the better.
