My history as a modeler
I began modeling when I was a kid, but I found that I lacked the patience and fine motor skills to really be successful at it. I gave up the hobby as I grew older, until I had some free time between finishing grad school and starting my job as a teacher. My wife bought me a Roman warship model for our anniversary, and I was off and running again. I followed that model with some old Ertl Star Wars kits ordered from eBay and from then on, I haven’t had less than one model lined up to work on next.
