Hello from Ohio

Greeting from Ohio. As a newcomer to the Sierra West community, a few words about myself. My name is Tom, retired after 45 years in the telecommunication world (no more callouts at all hours of the night or working in the cold/snow). I currently have the Dueling Shacks and the Wood Cutters Shack to construct. Our youngest daughter lives in Columbus Ohio, so I sent her a list of Rembrandt chalks to pick up at Blink for me. I really enjoy following the discussions and learning tips and techniques from all you seasoned pros. And believe me, I have a lot to learn.

  • Tom,

    Great to have you join the group. It would be quite helpful for you to familiarize yourself with how to use the information in the left hand column <----- there you will find completed step by step versions of the kits you already have on hand.

  • Welcome aboard. Originally from that part of the world myself..Springfield. Moved south in the 80's.
  • Welcome Tom. Always good to see a SW modeler move in. You know, we all are looking forward to see your first build. As I did myself, the Dueling Shacks are THE way to get familiar with the fantastic kits Brett provides. Then I moved on to the Woodcutters Shack.
    Both builds can be found on the forum.

  • Tom.
    Enjoy the time here. ............Carl.............
