Hi Matt! Long time, no see. I am alive and about as well as a 63 year old fat man can be. I had taken a couple-year trip to "the darkside" and built strictly armor. Got that somewhat out of my system and returned to my abiding attraction for submarines. Eased back into the groove with a build of the ancient Aurora Golf kit that I managed to get in a bag off eBay. Turned out well and encouraged me to continue. Working my way through the array of ChiCom subs available from HobbyBoss. Have done the Song class fast attack in 1/200 scale and the Han class and Xia class in 1/350 scale. Next build is the Yuan class boat in 1/200. Will take some pix soon and see if I remember how to send them. Leaving next week for a road trip up to Halifax, Nova Scotia. Will get in touch again when I get back. Saw your note on SMML and thot I should say hello. BTW, Lucky Model has a good sale on through tomorrow and I just ordered the 1/350 Vanguard kit. Its a good time to be a submarine modeler! Take care.
