    I'm a new lurker here. My introduction to card modelling was on my Honeymoon 28 or so years ago when I bought a model of a Merlin in flight in a hobby shop in either Arcada or Eureka, California. It is a beautiful model (they had one built), I was impressed and bought, then realized I had no idea of what kind of glue I needed to put it together. Anyhoo, here it is 28 years later, and I have a new grandson. What can I do to teach him motor skills? Hmmmm, maybe card modelling. So I joined the magic keys on Fiddler's Green and started looking around, now I have about a zillion models, five or six I have built and have been bitten by the bug. By the way, I still have the Merlin, have scanned it and will probably be one of my upcoming builds.

    Personally, I'm and old coot (62), and a self employed sign painter, a business I grew up in. Took a hiatus for about 15 years, nine and some change in the Army (yes Viet Nam was in there), and 5 or so surveying/engineering.
