My name is Karl Osolinski and I'm brand new to Brett's forum. My friend Carl Laskey suggested I join in the fun here so here I am. Although I no longer have a layout I do still build HO scale models. I do both kit and scratch building and have ended up with a bunch of dioramas that just sit around doing nothing but I still enjoy looking at some of them. I'm 72 years old, married (44 years) and have lived in Berkley, MI for 41 years. Thanks for having me.
