    Re: Other hobbies or past times outside of detailing

    Next one finished, this one was only 20 pieces. Very cheap and nasty. Paint and detailing makes all the difference though. Next might be the armoured personnel carrier from Aliens.

    Re: Other hobbies or past times outside of detailing

    Not sure how I missed this...

    Now that I'm a semi-empty nester and my life has simplified in other ways, I'm starting to revive some hobbies and explore new ones.

    - Autocross: Great motor sport and I'm in my second full season, but have dabbled a few seasons before too.
    - Fishing: Nothing serious, but it's nice to get away and drown some bait once in a while. I'm starting to eyeball some angler kayaks which will open up lots of possibilities in the small lakes/ponds in my area.
    - Food/drink: My wife and I love to try out new food, and I really like trying products from micro-breweries
    - Travel: Nothing serious or extravagant. We live in an incredibly diverse country on an incredibly diverse planet. No time like the present to start seeing as much of it as possible!

    I'll also dabble with the occasional Lego kits. I've got a few Start Wars machines I built with my girls when they were younger, but my latest effort is the Porsche 911 RSR Technic kit. It's going to take me a while to finish that one off...and find space for it!

    I started with model kits very young, grew out of it in my twenties, moved house last year and found some kits I never finished, or started, and before I knew it, I'm in my fifties and making them again.

    There are so many different subjects, prices, and difficulty levels, it would be too hard to recommend any where for you to start. But YouTube is your friend, if you see something that you like, someone will have made a video of themselves making it, might help you decide if it's the right hobby for you.

    Dave.

    It is no coincidence that man's best friend cannot talk.
