    Hi everybody.

    Sometimes is difficult to place Mexico in a geographical part... sometimes is NorthAmerica (as we are in the NorthAmerica Free Trade Agreement with USA and Canada), and sometimes we are in Central America.

    So for now, I´ll keep Mexico here, just because the coin landed on the other side. :wink:

    As I said to a couple of modelers from this forum (one in Mexico and one in Venezuela), no very much of Spanic America is found around paper modeling. Let´s cut some paper.

    Everybody wellcome.

    Hola a todos.

    A veces es dificil de colocar a México en una parte geográfica... a veces es NorteAmérica (ya que estamos en el Tratado de Libre Comercio de América del Norte con Estados Unidos y Canadá), y otras veces en América Central.

    Por ahora, vamos a dejar a México aquí, sólo porque la moneda cayó en lado anverso.

    Como le mencioné a dos modeladores de este foro (uno de México y otro de Venezuela), no hay mucho de modelaje de papel en Hispanoamérica. Empecemos a cortar papel.

    Todos son bienvenidos.

    If one were to consider this from a purely geological viewpoint then Mexico is most certainly part of North America (and so is Eastern Siberia too as far as the western plate boundry of North America is concerned). Agood portion of Central America is probably part of the North American Plate too. But then I suppose we are talking about the forums area. There I go again shooting off my big mouth :oops: :oops:

    Anything below the Mason-Dixon line is South America to me. :) Welcome to the forum.

    Maxon-Dixon... WOW that was North indeed, :)

    Good to know there are still forums like this that exclude borders, countries, etc., but at the same time, we all learn from one another, differences in culture, languages, modelling, etc.

    Cortando Papel:

    Hola Milenio¨:
    Yo vengo cortando papel desde hace 34 años. Iniciandome con un HS-123 Aleman. Desde entonces ni volteo a ver los modelos d plastico etc....
    Me especializo en aviones, algunos los diseño yo mismo (ver el Caproni 101 tri-motor en mi album) y otros los compro en kits, tambien hago uno o dos barcos al año.
    Gusto de Saludarte desde Panama.-------------

    English: Hi:
    I have been cutting paper for 34 years. I started with an HS-123 ( which I still have!!). Since then I hardly look at plastic models etc.. I specialize in airplanes, some of my own design since I sometimes want to build a model there is no kit for it ( see th tri-motor Caproni in my album), others I buy the kit. I also do one or two ships a year.
    Regards from Panama.

    I used to work on the Ballistic Missile Early Warning System with an American who was called Northern Hemisphere Forsythe his younger brother was called Southern Hemisphere Forsythe his father had moved south of the Mason Dixon line by that time.

    Barry... good to know. There are many places that are interesting to know, like that little island in one of the great lakes up north USA - can't remeber the name - and it was like a whole different country!

    Hey, Gera, I guess you are already a great modeller then... years! I thought this crazy paper thing was almost new. Great to have you around.

    M3 -- You must be referring to Mackinac Island. It is definitely a world of its own! I have been there several times, and found it enjoyable change of pace.

    Hi Guys...

    Sitting here in Saskatchewan, it's hard to think of any of you guys as "north"

    Michigan...north???)

    I'm claiming "north" :twisted:

    LOL! In this part of Mexico, it's the North!
    What is North, then?

    Maybe... from the Antartica all the way up?!?!? :p

    Hey, Ash... yes! That's the island. The first time I search it on the internet , I saw a map. A world on its own. Hope one day to visit, and then... to continue my trip up North!

    Simon,

    Your comment surprised me. How does someone who lives in Poland know about the Mason-Dixon line?

    I was raised north of the Line (Chicago), served in the US Navy mostly below it (Pascagoula, Norfolk). Especially in southern Mississippi there was still a lot of talk about it.

    Hey Simon,

    It hard to forget when people make fun of how you talk! :D

    That's the cool thing about typing...........everybody reads at about the same speed! :lol:

    AND we do like Northeners..........as long as they just come down to visit! :wink:

    Hope you enjoyed your time here in Mississippi, the coast has changed alot in the last few years with all the building the casinos have brought in.
    It's really nice to see folks enjoying themselves again. There for a while it was starting to look like a ghost town.

    Howdy yall (english), Hi yuse guys (Yanken-ese), hello eh(thats canuck) and hola (spanish),


    Well, I consider mexico on the north american continent, its too far north to be central (looking at a map).
    And Bowdenja, as for "perpitraitors of unprovoked northern aggression" (yankees), we got a saying here in the south (arkansas), Yankees are good.............................for boat anchors. lol j/j dont get all riled up folks. I know ya'll think yall won the war, but we un's is just regrouping, lulling ya into a false sense of security lol.
    Anyway just had to throw in a few jokes into the thread, I was gonna be a stand up comic, but ppl laughed at me so I quit. (I heard someone just say "good" lol).

    Have a nice evening all,

    Greg :lol:

    :lol: I think I was there in the middle of the ghost town period (late 1980s). There is something to be said for that, though -- I remember taking some very relaxing walking tours along the coast. Anyways, great to hear it's picked up a bit.
