Hello all
« on: August 25, 2015, 03:11:56 PM »
Hello to all.

I've been around a number of forums, primarily Paper Modelers and Maquetas en Papel (a forum based in Spain).

I'm a retired 27 year veteran of the US Navy.  When I retired my late wife and I moved back to her home country, Spain.

I've been away from modeling for more than a year due to a major illness. I am recuperating now and slowly coming back to paper modeling and starting with some less tasking models.

Hope to start a thread today.

By the way Dave, I was born and raised until I was 13 in western Ontario in a town called Fort Francis.

Retied......
Southern coast of Spain......
Doesn't get much better.

WELKOMMEN!





Sorry Dave, I don't actually know Fort Francis...
but it is a small world, and I am quite ignorant of my surroundings. LOL
I am actually born in England, and moved to Ontario many decades ago.

Welcome to the quiet little corner of the paper model community.

Hey Dave, I'm second generation, my grandparents (fathers side) moved from Liverpool to work in the paper factories in Fort Francis and International Falls, Minnesota in 1914. Crossing the border back then and when I was growing up was easy. The customs and immigration officers were your neighbors back then.
