Post subject:  Hello from a new Member in Oregon

Hello to all the forum members.
On and off modeler, as time permits, for 40 years of so, almost all armor in 1/35 scale.
Former US Marine, so that is one subject I enjoy doing from WW2/Korea/and up to modern.
IDF armor has always been one of my favorite subjects, but early on it was tough finding good base kits to start with.
Yes, I started back in the days of Monogram M3 halftracks.. Hobbycraft Mk3 Centurions, AEF Designs resin conversions, etc.

Last few years or so kits have become much better and wider subject ranges. But sadly more expensive too.
As in AFV Club Sho't-Kals, Tasca Shermans, Meng Mervakas, etc etc

But hey we gotta have hobbies / habits.
Just picked up the Meng Merkava Mk3D, and waiting for the D9R - (should be here tomorrow)

Back to the board after a few years off due to Medical issues/Overwork.
Lots of time now! Quit the Rat Chase after a series of strokes,
Still upright and kicking, just a bit slower and wobbly now.
