Name is Larry Hopkins. Been building models since I was 6 and I am now approaching my 71st birthday. I am a retired reliability engineer whose life long work has been nuclear power. Been a gear head all of my life too. I primarily build models of round track cars because I have been involved with them most of my adult life having built several real circle track cars as well as driven them on occasion. Currently live in Omaha NE and am from Big Stone Gap VA. Thanks for the addition to your group.

Hmmm, nuclear power and short track racing, could prove to be an interesting combination.  Welcome aboard, this is a good bunch of guys.  We are just trying to get reestablished after a server fiasco.  Let us see some of your work.  I have been building for almost 59 years myself, am retired from the USAF, and also enjoy circle track, they quite often become my slump-busters.
I build models because GOD allows me to.

THIS is what car modeling is all about!

Heaven sent me a 5' tall, 100 lb. living, breathing angel...Her name is Ellen.

Anything worth doing is worth doing right. Do it once, do it right, and be done with it.
