I have been lurking in the shadows long enough, it is time to come out and be part of the group...
I am a 30 career firefighter in Fairfax County, Virginia and use to build fire truck models with my dad back in the early 80's...we use to do shows with Greg and the Mattinglys, anybody remember FAMBA????....then life got in the way (being a responsible adult isn't all its cracked up to be) 2 kids, 2 jobs and assorted other things took up time and modeling fell by the wayside.
Fast forward 25 years, kids are grown, wife is "the ex" and I'm down to one job....the new wife took a promotion which put her working nights on shift work....which left me home alone about half the time......decided it was time to start modeling again!!!! Started with big rigs, which are still a favorite and I have posted several on another site...but the first love will always be fire apparatus.
Will post some pictures soon and see if I can dig some "blast from the past" out.
Look forward to sharing and being part of this forum.
