Well I know modelling is a number one hobby for a lot of you guys but its not for me. My number one hobby is golf, if I wasnt sitting here in work I would be either out on the course or at the driving range practising, I cant get enough I am addicted to it. Actually I might be making it part of my profession soon. The compnay I work for is going bust and I think I am next on the chopping block for Redundancy. So I can rethink my career path and Im thinking of jacking in Software development and training to be a Golf Club Professional but more especially a golf instructor, giving people lessons and that type of thing.

Others include football, both soccer (for our American buddies) and Gaelic Football...dont get to play either now through injuries but still love to watch it. Also play acoustic guitar...very very badly. And I own a RC car but just ever really got into much.


07-25-2003, 04:19 AM
Mine are
-playing R/C cars
-surfing the internet for car pictures
-playing my PS2
-looking at car products

07-25-2003, 04:25 AM
All kinda car related really. I love cars!

Sport - F1, DTM, WRC, etc.

I like to sketch/draw, I paint figures (i.e. the 54mm/90mm/120mm Verlinden/Andrea Models/Pegaso stuff), a good novel is sometimes quite absorbing...a bit of Sci-fi for escapism.

07-25-2003, 06:14 AM
PS2, soccer, watching wrestling and F1.

Don't know if it's gonna work out or not.

My main other hobby is RC. Only cars at the moment, but maybe a motorcycle in the future. I started with 1/10 nitro on road (RS42 and TC3), then 1/10 nitro off road (MT Racer), and lately 1/18 (BRP) and 1/24 electric (ABC DTM and Rocket Racer). I guess this is why it's nearly impossible for me to finish a model.

07-26-2003, 04:12 PM
-rallying (as a co-driver)
-diecast cars
-and.. ahem... horse stamps :rolleyes:

well i guess cars in general.. between my brother and I we have 12. also a big part of my income is also DJ'ing. yes Rave type DJ'ing though i havent gone to a Rave in 7 years unless i am playing. I love house music though and also write house music and have releaesd 7 singles. i dont like the rave scene but i do like the club scene though again.... at my age i dont party like i used too so when i do go to a club or or rave its because i am DJing and getting paid. but now i write alot of electronic music and i am working on Live PA's. oh and my beloved girlfriend is my biggest hobby.
