    GSAV8R New to GSN!

    I just discovered this site due to a fellow club member who visited Joe Nall and met someone who represents this site. I am a member of the ARF ( Always Ready to Fly ) Club In Livingston, Texas. I have been involved in modeling since my first rubber powered kit in 1957. My father flew control line and bought me the little kit. Of course I was too young to build, but I was bitten by the balsa bug. I have dabbled in all aspects of the hobby and prefer large scale models. I am a big fan of WWI and Golden Age planes. I currently have a 1/3 scale Sopwith Pup, a 1/4 scale Travelaire 4000 biplane, a 1/4 scale Aeronca Champ, a 1/4 scale J-3 Piper Cub. I have started to build a 1/3 scale Aeronca C-3, but it is on a back burner. I really enjoy the hobby and the friendships I have developed over the years. The bite of the balsa bug brings great rewards!

  2. Welcome! Glad to have you here! I am from Texas aswell, Jewett Texas, but now live in Illinois! We had a booth sat up at Nall on the 3D line. I believe my buddy Kerry Snider flys there in Livingston as well as Ronnie Chumm. Welcome to the Family. :yesss:

    :welcome: Hello Richard,

    You certainly have some AWESOME looking racers. I LOVE the R3, but who doesn't?. . . . . :yesss:. With planes like those, you will fit right in with the rest of us. The guys on this site are all like one big family. They are all willing to help out a fellow member whenever the need arises. Kick back, grab a cold one and enjoy your stay.
