My name is David, I am 68 years old. I am a USMC Viet Nam combet Vet. Served two tours of duty in Viet Nam, March 24, 1968 to May 24, 1969 and again from Feb. 1970 to Nov. 1970.
Was married then got a divorce in 2006. Moved to the Philippines and remarried. Have a wonderful wife name Rovelen and two wonderfull daughters, Danielle and Patrica Ann.
I started modelling when I was 8 years old, back then the models were not as they are now. I did some models off and on until 2005 when I became really interested in doing detail work. Had almost every thing needed from modeling. Then my divorce came and my ex-wife took it all from me and sold every thing.
I haven't given building models a thought until a last week when I started watching Bobby on You Tube and now he has me thinking about starting up again. I am in luck because I found a Hobby Store in Manila that has hopefully every thing I need. I haven't been modeling since 2007.
Thank You Bobby for getting me interested again.
Hope to be modeling again soon

Hey there David!

David her too! Lol welcome!

I'm actually in your beck of the woods now. I'm up in Clark for Balikatan . But I'm living in OKI

Should keep in touch. We come this way from time too time and I could easily bring ya supplies.

Not sure where u found the hobby shop. But LIL's in makati [Glorieta 4] and also in SM Mega (Cubao) have a great selection of kits. And Tamiya paints and other products. But that's about it.

Happy modeling!
