  9. Hey fellow hobbyists. I go by the same name on several forums and after leaving the hobby for 10 years, I'm finally ready for more! Ever since my wife started teaching kinders, it's giving me all sort of excuses to go back to my past obsessions lol. Now, even in this digital age, I can show them all sorts of awesome creatures that will hopefully make an impact on their lives.
