Well first off my name is Steve and have recently moved from sunny Sydney, Australia to Melbourne, Australia after retiring from my 15 year military. As a kid like most of us here started at an early age modelling plastic kits. From there the hobby grew then I hit that special time of our lives when we discover 1. Women and 2. alcohol and not in any particular order. The hobby took a back seat for probably 20 years with work, wife, life and kids taking up the time. After being injured and being permanently retired with a full military pension I was left with a lot of spare time so I jumped back into modelling to keep my mind sharp and the motor skills going plus its one thing I can still do comfortably. I got back into the plastic kits for a while then progressed to 1/3 and 1/4 scale gliders and model ships.
I have completed a number of model ship kits and am ready to get stuck into some scratch building now. I look forward to chatting with you all in the forums.
