Hello from Slovenia


Recommended Posts

Since i am new here i think it is appropriate to say hello and say few words..


For long my main hobby were rc models and jealously looking at fine crafted static models, now(funny what life have in store) due to my deteriorating health(muscle dystrophy smth) i needed to find some new hobby to fill days,weeks and this checks all my boxes(i like theme, wood and smell of it etc..).. Anyway i am wandering on this forum and just sitting with amazement on my face and hoping that i could be half as good as some of you.. I hope you will bear with me in a bad or good..

    I also am having to deal with MD, so I know something of its effects. (my version is Beckers) I found it a little easier to deal with once I discovered the limitations that I would have to live with, and how I could try to circumvent some of them.  I know that there are also several other members here that also deal with various disabilities. 

    Once I became confined to a wheelchair, I found that with some modifications to my tools and workshop, I could still do some ship modeling.  See my posting in Shore Leave under the Where do you do your modeling for some of the things I have had to change.

    I do feel somewhat fortunate that I live in the US, as many things that used to be impossible to do with a disability, are now possible due to the Americans With Disabilities Act.  I don't know how things are over where you are, but hopefully there are some allowances made for you.

Welcome to this amazing forum. I understand completely your rationale for joining this forum. I have a similar story and had similar reasons for turning this way. The best decision I could have made.  I am sure you will have years of enjoyment  building models.
