    ...but I grew up in the other Washington. I have great memories of my dad taking me to the Northwest Model Hobby Expo at the Puyallup Fairgrounds every year. Paper Models International was a mail order company out of Beaverton, OR and they always had a huge booth with most of their inventory, so I would save all my Christmas money for early February and blow it all there in about 5 minutes. I was an absolute fanatic. My last major coup (before losing interest in everything but girls) was that I managed to order a few L'Instant Durable models from France--no small feat for a kid in the pre-internet days.

    Recently I got nostalgic and surfed the internet for card modeling. I can't believe how sophisticated everything has gotten! So, I picked up a pack of #11 X-Acto blades and a bottle of Aleene's glue and I'm ready to get started again.
