About tread_geek
I've been building models since about age 10 with the occasional hiatus due to real life events. First armour model was a 1/76 Airfix Tiger I and was followed by a 1/72 Revell F4U Corsair. I've built primarily 1/76 and 1/72 armour and aircraft but occasionally have tinkered in other larger scales. Early on I also tried ship models and the odd car model. Since my return to the hobby in '07 I've concentrated on 1/72 armour.
