Hello From Colleyville Texas!

I am not new to the forum, but have decided to return.
I have been modeling since I was seven years old. I also do trains, RC Aircraft and cars. I have been too busy the last few years with schooling and completion of my hours to become an Airline pilot. I fly for the largest carrier in the world currently. I have finally slowed down enough to do what I enjoy, which can be difficult being away from home 3-4 days a week.
I am currently gathering components to build a Sherman Calliope based on the welded hull variant M4.
I am also the author and builder of the thread "It Begins! My M4A1 based Sherman Firefly Build" It can be seen here if you are unfamiliar with the thread.
This was my first scratch build of something of this scope. I was also voted into the Master Class Builds, which the build was never posted.
Many of us spend hours sharing the build as a tutorial to help others. Be sure to thank those who do so. It keeps our hobby interesting.
I look forward to sharing my build with the forum again and always look forward to commentary as well as constructive criticism and ideas.

Hello Dan,
Welcome back! I am relatively new here, but have enjoyed watching you Sherman Firefly build thread. I look forward to watching your Calliope Sherman build. I am in the process of building a Stug III and hope to start a build of an M4A3E2 76mm Sherman beginning next month. I am in the process of gathering the parts now for it.
