I've been goofin' with R/C cars for about 32 years now... And static plastic kits well before that. I used to do illustrations-artwork for R/C Car Action magazine in the early 1990's. I'm into cars and motorbikes, and for employment vehicle design (motorcycles currently). Prior to this I was a snowmobile and ATV designer in the late 90's and then worked in Detroit as a car designer for around six years at two different design studios. I am into model building and RC projects when I have time as a busy Dad. TamiyaClub has great people involved that love this hobby (addiction), trust me!
