Hi, I used to build a lot of aircraft and ship models, but now building armour models. I am also into rc tanks and I have a Taigan Tiger 1 all metal which weighs 15.5lbs!. Still also into model railways. Martin

I too have, or rather had, three somewhat large HO layouts in the basement. (Back when I had a basement - retired now.) Also had a small G scale loop in the garden.
Have been modeling (just about anything and everything) since grammar school. For now my three grown sons have me focused on 1/35th scale armor, mostly soft skins, though trains and planes still tempt me!
Name is Mike Koenig, I live in the south central US - Lexington, Kentucky to be exact. (86 miles from the Kentucky Darby/Derby!) Sounds like you have done a bit of everything model wise, me too. I especially like your interest in trains as well as in armor!
Thought that I had better introduce myself. Name is Martin,and I am located in a town called Jarrow,not far from Newcastle upon Tyne,England.
Been modelling for over 50 years now,building mostly aircraft and ships, and model railways which I still do. Recently started building 1/35 scale armour, and also into 1/16 scale rc tanks. Armour is really quite new to me even after my experience. Martin
