Re-introduction

Hi,

I call it a reintroduction because I was on here many years ago (looking at my user profile it was 2008 when I last posted).

Lots have changed since then, now a dad to 2 girls, moved from Ireland to Canada, Ottawa to be exact, maybe I should change my username.

I did bring my completed models from Ireland and surprisingly they arrived in one piece. The funny thing is that moving house here in Canada did more damage and sadly the worst damaged was my first completed car the Subaru Impreza.

Now you would think that I would have gotten lots more modelling done now that I have a basement and a permanent setup but you would be completely wrong, I don't believe I have completed a model since I moved here 6 years ago. So time to kick myself in the butt and get back to it.

Nice to see some of the old names still hanging around here though, hope all is well with everyone.

You know I have never actually been to one. There wasn't much choice in Ireland when I was living there. I wouldn't be too interested in showing off my models but would be good to go to get some inspiration.

Where would I find out about them?

Any good shops on the Quebec side? I have a couple close to me which are great for picking up supplies.
