Originally a word for a slaughterhouse, shambles now usually means "one heck of a mess"!
I started building models when I was a little kid and continued the hobby on and off until that mid-life crisis thing. Then I did some real cars. But honestly, I think I've had more fun with models, and they're way cheaper.
So, I'm retired now, and back into model cars, a diorama that got a little out of control, and doing my modest web sites. I'm also collecting quality die cast models, and having fun with real Corvettes
