    Introducing myself!

    Post  KarlJDM on Fri Jan 24, 2014 4:06 pm

    Hello everyone,

    Some of you may have noticed a new face at the club these last 2 Wednesdays. Well, that was me and before beginning to share my thoughts on other sections of the forum, I decided to introduce myself.

    My name is Karl Briffa, 32 years old and my interest is in cars. I've been building cars for quite some years now, however different priorities in life meant that in all these years I have only built around 12 cars in all  Embarassed I also have a specific type of cars that I build.. in real life I am addicted to Japanese cars so when it comes to choose my next build, I always choose a Japanese car in 1:24 scale. First cars I built were very basic, just spray and put together but I've dedicated a lot more time and effort in my latest builds, trying to add as much details as my eyes and hands allow me!

    I have been away from the hobby for the past 19 months because of several various house renovation works I had to do at our new home.. but now that I'm settling down, I'm looking very forward to start building again.. and that's the reason I joined SSM.. seeing all the amazing work you guys manage to create would be a BIG push forward for me to begin once again!

    Sooo, that's all from my side. Next I will try to create a topic to show you some of my builds which I'm looking very forward to display along side the other car guys at the next exhibition.

    Thanks goes to everyone that welcomed me at the club in these past 2 Wednesdays,

    Karl  cheers

    Nice to meet you yesterday, sorry we spoke for a short break but we were kind of busy playing with mud Wink

    Great to see the civilian section enriched with another very keen dedicated modeller!
